Ecuador: Chevron-Texaco to pay for the devastation it caused in the Amazon

PeA_ChevronEcuadorThe Union for Those Affected by Texaco Operations (UDAPT) has been fighting for more than 20 years to force Chevron-Texaco to pay for the ravaging contamination it caused in the Ecuadorian Amazon and to take responsibility for their actions. The different initiatives launched by the UDAPT in different countries are on the verge of reaching their goal. To get there they need additional funding. UDAPT asks people to tweet the message: “RT! Crowdfunding for those affected by Chevron in Ecuador! Please join the cause and donate!” http://ow.ly/FZQTd @Chevron_Toxico. To help UDAPT to prepare the environmental, social and cultural roadmaps for the remediation of the contaminated lands, donations can be made at (website in English): www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-battle-for-the-remediation-of-the-amazon.
