What is corporate prosecution/persecution? Follow along for the story of @Chevron vs @StevenDonziger

You can swipe through videos and hear @StevenDonziger,  @PaulPazyMiño, Associate Director of @AmazonWatch and @Ecoshaker clearly articulate this corporate crime in progress or read below:

⁃ Chevron makes an intentional decision to dump toxic waste into the Ecuadorian rainforest
⁃ Human rights lawyer @StevenDonziger challenges them in a nine year battle
⁃ He wins a $9.5 billion case against Chevron in their Supreme Court with over a dozen judges
⁃ He wins in 2 countries Ecuador + Canada
⁃ Chevron buys a judge in NY #LewisKaplan, to demand Donziger turns over his computer and phone w confidential client info
⁃ #LewisKaplan aka @Chevron tries to enlist NY district prosecutors to charge him they won’t
⁃ Judge #LewisKaplan then hires private law firm #sewardandkissell (who’s a client of Chevron)
⁃ Judge #LewisKaplan assigns Judge #LorettaPreska
⁃ they charge him with criminal contempt 
⁃ Donziger files appeal
⁃ Donziger goes to court to address the ‘criminal contempt’ charge and is placed under house arrest
⁃ He is under house arrest in his New York apartment for over 360 days and counting with a criminal ankle monitor

Yes you read that right
This is the first corporate criminal prosecution in the history of our country.
Make no mistake people this is a blueprint for how corporations will crush challengers in the future. Chevron has purchased and usurped our judicial system.




FunFact In addition to having judge #lewiskaplan on payroll the private law firm #sewardandkissell is a Chevron client and judge #LorettaPreska has direct ties.

How bad is Chevron? Every year there is a global day of action ’antichevron day’. It’s coming up on May 21.
