Ecuador's Indigenous to confront Chevron in shareholder meeting for rainforest damage and lies

Protest at Chevron Annual Shareholders Meeting, Wednesday 7:00 am
Chevron_Toxico.jpgWith evidence mounting that Chevron falsified evidence to evade paying a $9.5 billion pollution liability in Ecuador, Chevron CEO John Watson faces an embarrassing public reprimand this week from an Ecuadorian indigenous leader who has traveled from the rainforest to the company's annual meeting to confront top management with proof that it has gone rogue in the long-running litigation.
Humberto Piaguaje, a leader of Ecuador's Secoya indigenous tribe, will enter the company's annual meeting Wednesday as a shareholder with a proxy. He'll raise the issue of a new forensic report that proves Chevron's star witness lied under oath and explosive internal company videos that suggest Chevron scientists tried to defraud Ecuador's courts to evade a court-mandated clean-up of oil contamination that has afflicted Ecuador's rainforest for decades.
Join us on May 27th at Chevron's Annual Shareholder meeting as we take our demands to Chevron's doorstep and stand in solidarity with shareholders calling for a change in Chevron’s culture of deception, corruption and destruction.
RSVP for Chevron Shareholders Protest, 7:00 am Wedneday, May 27 at 350 Bay Area or on Facebook
