Come hear stories from Ecuadorian leaders representing more than 30,000 indigenous and campesino people who have been fighting Texaco (now Chevron) since the 1970s, when Texaco began contaminating their rainforest home with crude oil and chemicals. Fresh from their solidarity visit to the Standing Rock Sioux fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, Humberto Piaguaje and Carmen Zambrano will personally testify to the pain these multinational companies have wrought on their families, neighbors, and lands, and to the resilience that allows them to continue standing strong after more than twenty years of lawsuits.
Tuesday, September 27, 6:30–8:00 PM
Bobby Bowens Progressive Center
2540 Macdonald Ave, Richmond
Free parking across Macdonald at the Richmond Public Library; BBPC is a ten-minute walk from the Richmond BART Station (we’ll drop you back at BART after the talk)
