Massiv förstörelse av regnskogen i Ecuador


En viktig namninsamling att skriva på. Saxat direkt från ThePetitionsite:

"Chevron is responsible for one of the largest environmental disasters on the planet.

Over the course of 26 years of oil drilling in Ecuador's Amazon rainforest, U.S. oil giant Chevron deliberately dumped more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater into the rainforest, leaving local people suffering a wave of cancers, miscarriages and birth defects. In spite of the tremendous suffering caused by this toxic pollution, Chevron has refused to clean up the catastrophe.

Within the next year, the outcome of a court case sixteen years in the making will be determined by a court in Ecuador. Chevron has stated that even if it is found guilty in court the company simply won't pay to clean up the site or provide health care, potable water and compensation to affected communities. Chevron needs to take responsibility. But the company won't unless it feels pressure from its American customers and the general public."

Alla måste ta ansvar för sina handlingar, och så även Chevron. Skriv på i dag!
