In Part II of this three-part series, The Empire Files continues the investigation into the battle between Chevron Texaco and Ecuador. [Watch Part I here: https://dandelionsalad.wordpress.com/2016/08/15/abby-martin-chevron-vs-the-amazon-inside-the-killzone-part-1/]

In this installment, Abby Martin uncovers what really happened throughout the 22-year legal battle between the oil corporation and indigenous Amazonians, interviewing lead attorney for the case, Pablo Fajardo.

This episode also chronicles the shameful, scandalous history of Chevron Texaco—from the support of Hitler’s Nazi movement, to backing war crimes in Myanmar—and its retaliatory attacks against its victims.

  4. Totally brilliant. I look forward to part 3, and to the day when these brutal and ruthless profiteers are held fully accountable for their ecocidal crimes ~ made to pay and forced to underwrite universal planetary remediation forever.
