Report: Chevron financing, profiting from and liable for human rights abuses in Burma (Myanmar)

A report released today by EarthRights International (ERI) documents the ongoing human rights abuses…in the Yadana pipeline region of southern Burma (Myanmar). The first in-depth look at conditions in the pipeline region since Chevron Corporation joined the Yadana Project in 2005, the report details Chevron’s role in financing the military regime in Burma and highlights Chevron’s continuing legal liability for abuses associated with the pipeline... According to the report..., Chevron relies on the brutal Burmese military for pipeline security. The pipeline security soldiers conscript forced labor (including forced sentry duty along the pipeline route) and commit other serious human rights abuses in the course of their operations. [also refers to Unocal (part of Chevron)]
