Read the just-released report by the Assembly of Communities Affected by Chevron/Texaco in Ecuador, in conjunction with Amazon Watch and Rainforest Action Network:
The report details some of the hidden impacts of oil contamination, as well as survival and recovery strategies for affected communities.
Indigenous and community leaders from the Ecuadorean Amazon devastated by Chevron's oil contamination are in the U.S. Gulf Coast region to tour the Gulf spill area, visit with Native American tribes affected by BP's tragic Gulf spill, and exchange ideas on how to cope with the immediate and long-term environmental, health, economic, and cultural impacts of terrible oil disasters.
We will be updating this page over the course of the delegation. Check back throughout the week for Gulf Coast delegation news, photos, and video.
More frequent updates will be posted to our blog and Twitter.
