Description: Between 1964 and 1990, U.S. oil giant Texaco (now Chevron) deliberately contaminated Ecuador’s Amazon Rainforest by dumping some 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater, among other contaminants, leaving in its wake pollution levels 30 times higher than the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska.
Come learn about the Indigenous peoples’ struggle against Chevron. A struggle that is taking the case to the Supreme Court of Canada this December. A struggle for environmental and social justice that we can help win!
