    Standing with Amazon Watch

    July 17, 2015 – To be clear, there's absolutely nothing wrong with "an effort to pressure Chevron into a settlement."

    July 16, 2015 – As part of an ongoing effort to blur the truth, The Washington Times just published a "hit piece" against Amazon Watch, which has long supported the Ecuadorian communities that were devastated by decades of Chevron's reckless actions for which it has been found guilty in a landmark environmental lawsuit.

    Revolting with the Yes Men!

    June 26, 2015 – Our fabulous friends The Yes Men have just released their third (and many say best) movie called The Yes Men Are Revolting. Of course, Amazon Watch has direct experience with the genius of The Yes Men.
