Murder For Profit With Legal-ease

One of the many fine Perks that come with such massive, obscene, worldwide, income inequality.

The world’s largest oil disaster just got worse

Never mind the name on the account – this was written by my colleague, Ashley Allison, SierraRise Senior Campaigner. Standing eye to eye with Chevron CEO John Watson, Servio Curipoma fought back tears andbravely declared, “My mother died from your cancer. You killed my mother.”

Chevron files RICO suit in Ecuador case

Using a law written to prosecute the Mafia, Chevron Corp. filed a racketeering lawsuit against a team of lawyers who have been fighting the company over oil field pollution in Ecuador.

Chevron and the lawyers have been locked in an increasingly bitter, 18-year lawsuit that seeks to hold Chevron accountable for contaminating the soil and water in a swath of northeastern Ecuador. Texaco, bought by Chevron in 2001, drilled for oil there from 1964 to 1992 before turning over operations to state-run Petroecuador.  As a verdict in the marathon lawsuit nears, Chevron has tried to prove corruption among the lawyers and Ecuadoran officials involved in the case.

The plaintiffs’ lawyers slammed the new suit as an attempt by Chevron to bleed them of cash and distract the public from evidence of the company’s guilt in Ecuador.

Despite Chevron’s attacks, the brave people of Ecuador and their supporters aren’t giving up the fight — but they can’t do it alone. Will you stand with them?

Servio, a cacao farmer from the small oil-ravaged town of San Carlos, Ecuador, traveled thousands of miles to face down the CEO of one of the world’s most powerful companies. His goal: Hold Chevron accountable for polluting his once-pristine homeland with toxic
oil waste and killing his parents and his sister.

For three decades, Texaco, now part of Chevron, dumped 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste into the beautiful Ecuadorian Amazon. Servio’s family and thousands like it were left sufferinga plague of deadly cancers and devastating birth defects.

Now, despite losing a 20-year legal battle, Chevron continues to deny responsibility for the world’s largest oil disaster. 

The U.S. Senate has the power to investigate and help stop Chevron’s outrageous attacks on those who stand up to corporate greed. But it is up to us to make sure they use that power.

Tell the U.S. Senate’s top corporate watchdogs to investigate Chevron’s attacks against the very people it poisoned. Let’s flood their inboxes with 70,000 comments before Thursday’s big press conference!

In an unprecedented move, the oil giant is using a U.S. law intended to rein in mobsters to sue Servio’s neighbors and fellow activists and supporters — branding them as criminals just for speaking out.

The Sierra Club and thirty other organizations have joined forces to call out Chevron for their dirty tactics — but we need to keep the drumbeat going. These 10 powerful senators have aproven track record of taking on big corporations and winning. If they stand with us, then Chevron’s evil tactics can be stopped.

In 1994, when Texaco was done pillaging Ecuador, it left behind a toxic wasteland. More than 900 open and unlined waste pits dot the landscape, overflowing toxic chemicals into the waterways that Servio’s family and their neighbors rely on
for cooking and bathing.

Send your message and let’s show Chevron it can’t put profits over people!

Servio isn’t alone. Emergildo Criollo lost his two sons and nursed a wife through uterine cancer. His family drank, bathed, and fished in water he now knows was poisoned with oil. He says, “I lost two children to Texaco’s pollution and the company now calls me a criminal for daring to demand justice.”

Despite Chevron’s attacks, the brave people of Ecuador and their supporters aren’t giving up the fight — but they can’t do it alone. Will you stand with them?

In it together,

Understanding: .................... Understanding disolves the pseudo dichotomies revealed by StarSteps, with scientific validation of the age old philosophies surmised by Walter Russell and Judge Thomas Troward, merging physics and metaphysics (Plato’s suggestion); Understanding the radius of curvature, symbolized by our ancestors with the circle & sine wave, un-hides the hidden variables, removes the foundational problems described in The Trouble With Physics, and as previously stated, leads toward self recognition of very advanced and practical solutions to contemporary “issues” on the tripod of reality - physical, mental/social, and the vague spiritual dimension revealed by the ‘zero point’ of no time, no space, also found in the realm of advanced martial arts and meditation. ......................... The statement from a well known book, “Let there be Light” is now enhanced with far more practical meaning: Light’s velocity, converted into an energy differential is the measure of the radius of curvature of all natural law; This same energy differential (VC) is the total energy contained in each and every gram of atomic mass. It could be said, everything we see and touch is light in motion or light stationary. ............................. http://evolution-intelligentdesign-survival.blogspot.com/2010/01/its-musical-universe.html .
