Chevron will fight until hell freezes over, then skate it out on the ice. — Charles James, former Chevron Vice President and General Council

We can’t let little countries screw around with big companies like this … — Chevron lobbyist

For decades, Texaco (now owned by Chevron), dumped toxic waste in pristine Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador.

Chevron were sued in Ecuador, Chevron lost, but has refused to pay damages. Chevron has vowed to lock in litigation until hell freezes over, then to litigate on the ice.

This is how Big Business operates.

In a landmark judgement against Chevron in an Ecuadorian court in 2011, the company was ordered to pay more than $18 billion towards the clean up of widespread contamination, as well as compensatory and punitive damages. The case, holding Chevron accountable for toxic dumping by its predecessor company, Texaco, has been upheld by appellate courts in Ecuador.

The case now goes to the International Criminal Court.

Please sign the petition calling on Chevron to pay for their crimes.
