Tell Chevron: Protecting the planet isn't a crime!

For nearly two decades, Texaco -- now part of Chevron -- dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste into the pristine Ecuadorian Amazon, poisoning countless people and creating what's considered to be the world's largest oil disaster.

In a blatant attempt to avoid a massive judgment against it in Ecuador's courts, Chevron has twisted the RICO Act -- legislation designed to target mobsters -- to silence their critics and have them labeled as criminals. Shockingly, a U.S. judge actually sided with Chevron earlier this year. 

It's now possible for other wealthy corporations to attack activists like you and me just for speaking out and exposing their actions -- but we're not going to stand for this. 

Sign the pledge today: Protecting our planet is not a crime, but polluting the Amazon with toxic oil waste definitely is!

I stand with Ecuador! Protecting the planet isn't a crime.
Today, I stand in solidarity with the people of Ecuador to tell Chevron it cannot silence those of us who speak out against its destruction of the Ecuadorian Amazon. For three decades, Texaco, now part of Chevron, dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste into the beautiful Ecuadorian Amazon and sickened countless people. Instead of doing what's right, Chevron has undertaken a campaign of intimidation, including abusing the RICO Act, to silence the Ecuadorians and their supporters. I do not agree with Judge Kaplan's decision in favor of Chevron, siding with a wealthy corporation found guilty of massive environmental destruction against the very people who stood up to bring Chevron to justice. This is an affront to all Americans who cherish their right to speak out against those who value profit over people or the environment.
