Call or write your Rep, demanding Donziger's immediate release in line with international law!
Human rights lawyer Steven Donziger helped win the historic $9.5 billion judgment against Chevron for deliberate pollution of the Ecuadorian Amazon. After Chevron targeted him in US courts, he was recently sentenced to six months in prison for misdemeanor “contempt of court”. A United Nations Working Group recently found this case to be a violation of international law and has requested that Steven be released immediately.
Ask your representative to sign the urgent letter spearheaded by Representative Rashida Tlaib and Representative Jesús García to Attorney General Garland demanding his office take immediate action - as the United Nations has instructed - and free Steven R. Donziger.
An esteemed U.S. human rights attorney is being unjustly imprisoned by our very own courts in violation of international law, not for some real harm he did, but for protecting his vulnerable clients and his ability to serve them from one of the most toxic companies the world has ever seen. Will you do your part in seeing that courts rectify the unprecedented and unjust imprisonment of Mr. Donziger?
