    Washington Times Echoes Chevron's Lies in Libelous Hit Piece

    Amazon Watch and our supporters will not be bullied!

    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.
