Author: We Can Change Chevron, Published on: 28 June 2010
Asamblea de Afectados por Texaco (The Assembly of Communities Affected by Chevron/Texaco) [prepared a document] to be presented to Gulf Coast communities affected by the recent BP oil disaster. In confronting their own oil disaster, Indigenous Ecuadoreans have learned many lessons about cultural survival and what it takes to hold a company accountable for harms it has caused. Included in the document are 10 lessons communities in Ecuador have compiled from their experiences living with Chevron’s billions of gallons of oil contamination for the past 30 years.
