For years, the Ecuadorian government, environmental activist groups and calculating lawyers have used images of oil pits, spills and indigenous peoples in the Amazon to mislead the public and pressure Chevron into settling a multi-billion dollar lawsuit against the company. Rather than give in to these tactics, Chevron has fought back, exposing the lawsuit as a fraud and holding the purveyors of that fraud accountable.
This video highlights the fact that Texaco (now owned by Chevron) already cleaned up its share of oil production sites before leaving Ecuador in the late 1990s and that the Ecuadorian government is solely responsible for the current environmental and social conditions in the Amazon.
These videos, produced by Chevorn, provide a comprehensive and never-seen-before look at the case in Ecuador, from the history of oil production in the region to the pervasive fraud that has plagued the litigation in Lago Agrio. These videos detail all aspects of the situation in Ecuador, including evidence of fraud obtained by Chevron in the form of video outtakes, depositions and internal emails and documents from the plaintiffs' lawyers themselves.
Chevron is defending itself against false allegations that it is responsible for alleged environmental and social harms committed by its subsidiary Texaco Petroleum Co. in the Amazon region of Ecuador. Videos in this playlist provide a comprehensive overview of the facts about TexPet's operations in Ecuador and the fraudulent lawsuit against the company.
