End Chevron’s corporate prosecution of Donziger and demand justice for Ecuador
Let’s get to 100!
Human rights attorney Steven Donziger, who helped win the historic $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron for deliberate pollution of the Ecuadorian Amazon, was sentenced to six months in prison for misdemeanor “contempt of court.” He remains on house arrest today after having already served 45 days in prison and over 950 days of confinement.
The U.N. Working Group on Arbitrary Detention found in September 2021 that Donziger’s deprivation of liberty is arbitrary because it violates multiple norms relating to the right to a fair trial, including the apparent lack of impartiality of the courts.
