Solidarity in Canada
We are a Solidarity Committee with the communities affected by Chevron around the world. #AntiChevron is a Canadian campaign to expose the dirty hand of Chevron and learn about the poison this oil giant left in the Ecuadorian Rain Forest and across the world. We organize rallies, documentary screenings, workshops, and events to expose Chevron’s Dirty Hand.
Our mission is to inform and spread awareness of Chevron’s Dirty Hand around the world including: Ecuador, Romania, USA, Nigeria, Argentina, and Canada itself. In Canada, we stand in solidarity with the Unist’ot’en people of “British Columbia” and their struggles against Chevron as well as with the Ecuadorian people and their pursuit of Chevron’s assets in Canada after a 20 year-long $9.5 billion lawsuit win.
Why Anti-Chevron in Canada?
Chevron is the 3rd largest corporation in the United States with revenues larger than the GDPs of 138 Nations. They are also the cause of millions of deaths and illnesses around the world due to their irresponsible and unsafe operations in countries like: Canada, Angola, Burma, Brazil, China, Colombia, Ecuador, France, Indonesia, Iraq, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, Peru, Thailand, Turkmenistan, the United Kingdom, Australia and various states in the U.S., including Alaska, Utah, Texas, and Mississippi.
In Canada, Chevron has illegally agreed to build a pipeline across the land where the Unist’ot’en people of the Wet’suwet’en clan reside. As a result, the Unist’ot’en people have denied access to surveyors and set up a roadblock preventing Chevron into the land. We stand in solidarity with the Unist’ot’en people in Canada.
In Ecuador, after 20 years of legal battle, Chevron was sentenced to compensate the affected communities in Ecuador with $9.5 Billion. Unfortunately, Chevron has slickly pulled all its assets out of Ecuador so Canada has stepped up and agreed to hear this case in the Canadian Supreme Court!
If you are interested in organizing a documentary screening, information forum series or event about the poison #Chevron left in the Ecuadorian Rain Forest please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are always open for new ideas and suggestions and we look forward to building a strong network in Canada to pressure Chevron to clean up the contamination they left in Ecuador.
The Chevron Tapes – What Chevron does not want you to know.
In 2011, Amazon Watch received a mysterious package from a Chevron whistleblower. No return address, just dozens of DVDs and a note: “I hope this is useful for you in the trial against Texaco/Chevron! Signed, a friend from Chevron.”
