Chevron vs. the Amazon - Public Lecture by Associate Professor Dr John Minns
Presented by The Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS) and the Embassy of Ecuador in Australia.
In June this year the US Supreme Court ruled in favour of the oil company Chevron and against 30,000 Ecuadorians who claimed that Texaco – later acquired by Chevron - had caused massive environmental damage in oil production between the early 1970s and 1993 in the Lago Agrio field in north-east Ecuador. The Ecuadorians have argued since then that the attempt to clean-up the oil fields had been unsuccessful and that many in the region had suffered major health problems as a result.
This talk looks at the legacy of oil production in the region and examines the political economy of oil in Ecuador, the environmental problems frequently caused and the difficulties raised by asymmetrical power relations between developing countries and first-world corporations.
