New Report: Chevron Violates Domestic and International Laws with Impunity

.The report’s author, Nan M. Greer Ph.D., documents how Chevron, the world’s number one producer in greenhouse gas emissions among all investor-owned oil companies “violates domestic and international laws with impunity,” country by country. Image
.Legally, the report asserts that Chevron has “annihilated critical biodiversity hotspots around the world.” The corporate giant has amassed more than $50B in judgments and settlement debts that the company refuses to pay. Image
“When #Chevron loses these cases for large amounts, their approach is never to accept defeat and do the right thing, but to undermine the process and attack the very people who beat them in court,” said Paul Paz y Miño, Associate Director of @amazonwatch.
There are countless examples of this tactic – none perhaps closer to home than that of Steven Donziger. “Here’s a human rights attorney who helps win the largest judgment ever against Chevron, who has now been criminalized by the company.
Despite the @UN calling for his immediate release, @SDonziger has spent over 800 days living under house arrest in his New York apartment for a bogus contempt ruling issued by a judge with direct ties to Chevron. Image
“On this day, we celebrate the incredible contributions of indigenous people to the world. However, vicious attacks against indigenous have occurred at the hands of Chevron, where more than 60% of public company incidents record human rights abuses against indigenous peoples...
The corporation has created a legacy of genocide, death, loss of ancestral land, torture, forced labor, rape, and violence against women,” said Greer.
