Rejoinder from Amazon Watch
Chevron admitted to deliberately dumping 16 billion gallons of toxic waste into the Ecuadorian Amazon for a profit, a fact it neglected to mention when responding to its SLAPPie award. Since being found liable for $9.5 billion for cleanup and health costs, no court in the world has exonerated the oil company for its acts in the Amazon, despite Chevron’s unprecedented forum shopping... During the course of Chevron’s decades long attempt to escape for paying to clean up its admitted crime, Chevron itself has been exposed as having participated in fraud, bribery, blackmail and other violations on top of its initial environmental and human rights crimes - which continue to poison the local communities in Ecuador to this day.
... The reason that Steven Donziger is being charged with criminal contempt is that Chevron, despite having won its now discredited RICO suit years ago, has continued to demand access to Donziger’s private information in an attempt to prevent his ongoing work to enforce the Ecuadorian judgment outside of the U.S... The Protect the Protest task force has already shared information about Chevron’s ongoing legal intimidation tactics against those who have supported Donziger’s efforts to seek justice for communities harmed by Chevron.”
