CSR Press Release

Calle 13 Calls on Chevron to Stop Running from Amazon Disaster

Band to Visit Ecuadorian Communities Devastated Decades Ago by Chevron

NEW YORK, May 02 /CSRwire/ - Calle 13, one of the most popular bands in Latin America, will visit the Amazon Rainforest in Ecuador this Friday to witness the environmental damage caused by Texaco, now Chevron, when it operated in Ecuador between 1964 and 1992.

The Puerto Rican Band is joining the international campaign “The Dirty Hand of Chevron,” which was launched last September and is intended to raise international awareness about the environmental disaster caused by the multinational oil giant.

Calle 13, the winner of multiple Grammy Awards and Latin Grammy Awards, had performed previously in Ecuador but had never visited the affected region. The band members René Pérez, known as Residente, and Eduardo Cabra Martínez, known as Visitante, will meet with the communities affected by the pollution and visit the site Aguarico-4, which is one of the pools of oil waste that Chevron abandoned almost 30 years ago without remediation. Calle 13 will also perform free in the nearby city of Lago Agrio on Saturday, May 4 at 6:00 PM at the Estadio de la Federacion Deportiva de Sucumbios, where over15.000 fans from the area are expected.

Calle 13 joins a growing group of celebrity and artist activists calling on Chevron to end decades of litigation. Last February, actress and humanitarian Mia Farrow, who was named as one of the most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2008, visited the affected region and criticized Chevron’s refusal to take responsibility.

During its operations in Ecuador, Chevron used illegal disposal methods to systematically dump roughly 18 billion gallons of toxic waste into unprotected pools and local waterways, contaminating soil and water sources for local communities and leaving lasting environmental damage and a public health crisis.

Al Gore, Brad Pitt, Sting, Danny Glover, Cher and Bianca Jagger have also advocated for accountability from Chevron and voiced solidarity with the people of Ecuador.
