Fight Oil with Water

2 posts / 0 new

It is so sad to see the pollution in our water and the water of other countries where the oil and gas industry just takes advantage of the lack of environmental regulations. Please read the email I received below and watch the SHORT video.

How can you help the communities of the Amazon fighting oil contamination and a historic health crisis?

With water.

Specifically, you can help spread the word about ClearWater, a community-led project that is providing immediate relief to the people of the Ecuadorean Amazon. The same powerful communities that have been waging a 19-year battle to bring Chevron to justice for its toxic legacy in the Amazon are now building safe drinking water systems for themselves. Can you help spread the word by sharing this video with your friends and family?

For nearly two decades, 30,000 Indigenous and rural Ecuadoreans have been fighting to hold Chevron accountable for its oil pollution in the Amazon. What’s more, they’ve kept up the fight even while the absence of readily available clean water has contributed to a health emergency for their communities, including an epidemic of cancer, miscarriages, birth defects, and other ailments.

That’s why these rainforest communities have teamed up to launch ClearWater — a project that is providing safe drinking water to the people of the Ecuadorean Amazon while they continue to hold Chevron accountable for its oily mess.

Please share the video now.

And you can find out how to support the project here:
