AMAZON WATCH » Stop Chevron’s Attacks Against the People It Poisoned!

AMAZON WATCH » Stop Chevron’s Attacks Against the People It Poisoned!. This is an important and urgent protection. Chevron is poisoning people in the Amazon. Now that these people and some environmental groups are fighting back, the polluting Oil Company is attempting to use the RICO act to make such actions by indigenous groups and environmental groups illegal. This is beyond outrageous.

The RICO act was enacted to fight racketeering. This legislation was intended punish criminal acts. Applying it to grassroots organization efforts to hold corporations accountable for their actions is a hideous and insidious misuse of the judiciary. This nonsense must be stopped ASAP!
