Tell Oil Companies: Stop Hiding Profits From Indigenous Communities

    1. Sponsored by

      Oxfam America

For too long, powerful oil companies have secured record profits where they operate, while local and indigenous communities reap few benefits.

Last year, people scored a victory when Congress passed transparency legislation forcing oil companies to report their payouts to foreign governments. Soon, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will issue regulations to implement the law – but right now, big oil companies and the American Petroleum Institute are fighting to weaken it.

This means that local communities might continue to lose, as many of their governments receive payments from oil companies that operate in their backyards.

We can’t let this happen. Tell American Petroleum Institute (API) President Jack Gerard, the mouthpiece for companies like Chevron and BP, that he can’t get away with it. With a big enough public outcry, we’ll make these companies realize we won’t stand for their underhanded tactics.

      Such greed is just beyond me. It's so unfortunate that there seems to be way too many incredibly wealthy fat cats like this who seem to lack any sense of empathy.

      It is such a shame at how greedy some governments and corporations are just in order to keep their profits on the rise.

      The people need the right thing to be done by them. If we don't start somewhere in protecting the people and strengthen laws and regulations against oil companies, sooner or later, oil companies will run the world and there will be no people left!

      Especially with these huge profits that these big cats are making, they should do the right thing and spare some change for those who are in dire need of help instead of stripping basic necessities away.
