New Video Urges Ecuador to Keep Its Promise

New Video Urges Ecuador to Keep Its Promise

Readers of Shopfloor will be familiar with the story of the “legal fraud of the century.” In this real-life legal drama, activists, the government of Ecuador and corrupt lawyers colluded to bring a lawsuit against Chevron that is extortionate and fraud-ridden. They have spent years using misleading claims and images to try to force the company to pay billions of dollars in environmental damages for which it is not responsible.

Chevron has released a powerful new video showing that it’s the Ecuadorean government that bears true responsibility for environmental and social conditions in the Amazon. Chevron is calling on Ecuador to keep its promise and clean up the Amazon, rather than trying to blame others.
