Over the course of twenty-six years of oil drilling in Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest, U.S. oil giant Chevron deliberately dumped more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater into the rainforest, leaving local people suffering a wave of cancers, miscarriages and birth defects. The tragedy in Ecuador is so profound, it has been compared to the Exxon Valdez spill and called the “Amazon’s Chernobyl.”
Despite of the tremendous suffering caused by this toxic pollution, Chevron has refused to clean up the catastrophe.
Sign this petition to Chevron CEO John Watson and tell him he needs to clean up his company's toxic legacy in Ecuador.
