Chevron (formerly Texaco) has admitted to dumping more than 18 billion gallons of toxic wastewater into the pristine Ecuadorian Amazon, creating one of the most contaminated industrial sites on the planet. Nearly four decades and billions of dollars in profit later, Chevron refuses to take responsibility for the resulting environmental degradation and exploding health crisis. Join us and the people of the Ecuadorian Amazon in the fight for justice and accountability in the heart of the world. To learn more and take action visit the ChevronToxico website.
