After almost two decades, Chevron was finally found guilty for deliberately dumping more than 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste in the Ecuadorean Amazon. This toxic waste has caused a mass increase in cancer, birth defects, miscarriages and loss of culture in the Amazon. Roughly 1,400 people have died from Chevron's oil pollution in the Ecuadorean Amazon, yet the company still vows not to pay the $8 billion damages it was ordered to pay by an Ecuadorean court.
Not only did the Ecuador court fine Chevron for damages, but it also required Chevron to make a public apology for the devastation. If the company doesn’t comply, the fine doubles.
Now is the time to ask Chevron to finally take responsibility and publicly say sorry for the years of denial and devastating pollution they left behind in the Amazon.
Sign this petition to CEO John Watson and tell them it’s time to take responsibility for Chevron's 18-year-old toxic legacy in Ecuador.
