AMAZON INDIANS IN PROTEST MARCH AGAINST CHEVRONTEXACO

Ecuadorian Secoya Indian elders join hundreds of demonstrators in a march to the Superior Court of Justice in the Amazonian town of Lago Agrio, Ecuador, October 21, 2003, at the start of a landmark trial where indigenous rainforest peoples are seeking to force ChevronTexaco to clean up the environmental contamination left behind from Texaco’s oil drilling operations in the Ecuadorian Amazon. The court has the power to impose a multi-billion dollar judgement against CheronTexaco that will be enforceable in U.S. courts. The sign at right reads «Texaco Never Again». Photo by Lou Dematteis
