Chevron is trying to criminalize those who fight for justice in Ecuador
Human rights attorney Steven Donziger, who helped win the historic $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron for deliberate pollution of the Ecuadorian Amazon, was sentenced to six months in prison for misdemeanor “contempt of court.”
After an unprecedented 800+ days of home detention, he served 45 days in federal prison and was recently released to serve the remainder of his sentence back on house arrest. Chevron has criminalized Donziger in attempts to silence him but we won’t stand for it. Corporations have no place in the U.S. justice system!
The United Nations, 68 Nobel Laureates, numerous NGOs and human rights groups such as Amnesty International, hundreds of lawyers and bar associations, and several members of the U.S. Congress have demanded he be set free of any detention, that all charges be dropped, and have called for an investigation into this judicial abuse and travesty of justice.
