Protect the Protest's second annual SLAPP Awards names Chevron as "corporate bully of the year"; incl. company response
Protect the Protest task force, a group of over 20 organisations combining their expertise to protect free speech, defend dissent, and stop strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPP), released its second annual SLAPP awards.
These awards name Chevron as "corporate bully of the year" for the second year in a row, an award given to the corporation that has engaged in the most aggressive efforts to harass and intimidate critics. The Lawfare Project was awarded the "most outrageous SLAPP award" and Devin Nunes received the "belly flop award" for the most ridiculous SLAPP suit.
Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Chevron to respond to this allegation; it did. Amazon Watch sent a rejoinder to Chevron's response, to which Chevron responded, followed by another response by Amazon Watch. All responses are available below.
