Chevron is guilty of dumping a massive amount of oil pollution in the Ecuadorean Amazon, and, as you may have heard, a judge has ordered the company to pay $8 billion to clean it up. But Chevron has vowed to appeal the decision, clearly intending to pull an Exxon Valdez and stall indefinitely, hoping never to pay its due.
So the Change Chevron team got together with our friends and allies at Amazon Watch, Greenpeace, Global Exchange, and Communities for a Better Environment, headed down to Chevron’s HQ in San Ramon, CA, and delivered a message to the company: Chevron was found guilty because Chevron is guilty. Time to accept responsibility and clean up your oily mess in Ecuador!
