Environmental advocates are determined to continue a decade-long legal battle to force Chevron to accept responsibility for the devastating contamination of the Ecuadorian Amazon.

 

 

In a recent interview with Telesur, U.S. lawyer Steve Donziger, who originally headed up a lawsuit against Texaco back in 1993, explains Texaco has “used subterfuge, intimidation, fraud and threats to delay the judicial process every step of the way… employed 2,000 lawyers and 60 law firms to delay the process, calculating it’s cheaper to pay huge sums to lawyers than to meet its legal responsibilities to clean up its toxic dumping in Ecuador.”
