The Price Of Chevron

Last week Chevron Pit posted heartbreaking pictures of Ecuadorians living in the area of Amazon that was devastated by Chevron’s contamination. Images of a fourteen-year-old girl suffering from birth defects because her mom was exposed to toxins when she was pregnant; a little boy with deformed arm and numerous cancer victims will bring you to the verge of tears. Chevron’s lawyers, however, do not care and claim billions of gallons of toxic waste didn’t harm anyone. According to them there are no victims and people who are suing the oil giant are not important at all. Chevron Pit quotes one of the lawyers:
“The plaintiffs are really irrelevant. They always were irrelevant. There were never any real parties in interest in this case”

Chevron Still NOT Doing The Right Thing

Chevron lost the fight. The oil giant IS responsible for the contamination in Ecuador and was ordered by a court to pay $18 billion fine. Chevron’s lawyers and PR team have tried pretty much everything to get out of the responsibility, but being found guilty doesn’t stop them from going even further in their dirty battle.

Bringing relief to the Ecuadorians suffering because Chevron’s toxic waste has contaminated their homeland should be a priority, but the oil giant simply refuses to do it. All of the company’s assets in Ecuador have been sold so Ecuadorians can’t collect them and people fighting for the justice on behalf of the victims are being intimidated and spied on! Two lead lawyers for the Ecuadorians are being followed and taped by the investigative firms that Chevron has hired! Even their families are under Chevron’s constant surveillance!!

Chevron is fighting so hard to avoid paying for its own mess but wasting money on private investigators hired to harass innocent people is apparently not a big deal.

Chevron Inserts Big Foot Into Big Mouth

The Chevron Pit put together some of the "darndest things" Chevron's lawyers have said about its contamination of the Ecuadorian rainforest. Looks like Chevron has a habit of inserting its big foot into its big mouth. After reading them I can't help but wonder whether they even realize how desperate and corrupt they sound. Read them and you'll know what I mean.
