Statement of Amazon Defense Coalition Over Allegations by Chevron In $27B Ecuador Environmental Case

The legal and scientific case against Chevron in Ecuador stands on the merits. The court-ordered damages assessment, ordered by a previous judge, found that 100% of Chevron's former sites are contaminated with life-threatening toxins. On that basis, we believe Chevron is now liable for significant damages. We understand the seriousness of Chevron's allegations. An appropriate investigation will determine whether the allegations are true or if they are the product of a dirty tricks campaign designed and financed by the company.
