Chevron refuses to take responsibility for its massive oil contamination in the Ecuadorean Amazon, which has triggered a dire health crisis in the region. The people impacted by Chevron’s pollution have waged a legal battle for two decades against the Big Oil behemoth, and it’s super important that we all show Chevron that we stand with them. As we head into Chevron’s annual shareholder meeting on May 9, even the company’s shareholders are calling on Chevron executives to settle with the Ecuadoreans. Chevron CEO John Watson needs to hear from you right now.
Please take five minutes to pick up the phone and give John Watson a wake up call. Then let us know how the call went by filling out the form below. You probably won’t get to speak to Watson, but please remember to be cordial so that the employee who answers will engage in the most useful dialogue possible.
If you get sent to voicemail, state your concerns candidly or use this sample script:
Hello, I’m calling because I’m concerned about Chevron’s toxic legacy in the Ecuadorean Amazon. The oil contamination left by Texaco, which Chevron bought in 2001, has triggered a major health crisis. Thousands of people are suffering from an epidemic of cancer, skin disease, and other ailments, but instead of taking responsibility Chevron is pursuing a legal and marketing strategy aimed at avoiding paying for clean up. I’d like to urge John Watson to do what’s right in Ecuador and clean up Chevron’s mess. Thank you.
If s/he answers, say:
Hi, may I please speak with John Watson? I’m calling because I’m concerned about Chevron’s toxic legacy in the Ecuadorean Amazon. I’d like to urge you to do what’s right in Ecuador and clean up your company’s mess. Please do the right thing for the people suffering the impacts of your company’s oil contamination in Ecuador.
