Mon Jan 24 2011 Rainforest Action Network, Raging Grannies Deliver Award to Chevron CEO's Home
Chevron CEO Awarded Corporate Hall of Shame Certificate Last week Rainforest Action Network's Change Chevron team asked people to call Chevron CEO John Watson and congratulate him for being inducted into Corporate Accountability International's Corporate Hall of Shame. The same day, Rainforest Action Network activists teamed up with the Raging Grannies, boarding a biodiesel bus to deliver an enlarged Corporate Hall of Shame certificate to Watson at his home in Lafayette, California.

Chevron is currently facing a multi-billon dollar lawsuit in Ecuador for dumping over 18 billion gallons of toxic oil waste onto the traditional lands of Indigenous peoples and small farmers in Ecuador’s Amazon rainforest during the course of three decades of oil drilling. Despite mountains of irrefutable scientific evidence, Chevron refuses to take responsibility for one of the world’s worst ecological disasters.
