    Well I think that it is a bit superfluous to elaborate something before seeing the material content inside the movie which is the real core of the topic itself...

    It was just a starting point about what sometime an interest could be a very bad unsustainable development.... where only few people exploit the opportunity do not thinking about the consequences that this or that action produces to the environment for the present and for the future of indegenous people!!!

    Funny thing about stuff like that is Texaco built many of the operations, but the Ecuador Government company Petroecuadorhas, been the owners and operators for 20 years now. It doesn't help that they had a major accident in 1998.

    My understanding is there were complaints while owned by Texaco, but there have been far more problems after Texaco left.

    Ecuadorian Farce, first part of the article:

    It is not Chevron which should be sued for environmental damages in Ecuador, but the country's own state oil company.

    BY CHRONICLE EDITORS

    It makes good headlines, but asking Chevron to pay $7 to $16 billion in compensation for environmental damages in Ecuador is both unfair and absurd. The lion's share of contamination has been done by Ecuador's own state oil company Petroecuador, one of the most mismanaged and inefficient oil companies in Latin America.

    From 2002 to 2007, Petroecuador was responsible for more than 1,000 oil spills, of which 168 took place last year alone. In fact, Petroecuador (through its oil and gas exploration and production subsidiary Petroproducción) accounted for 90 percent of all oil spills in Ecuador last year, according to official government data quoted by local newspaper El Universo. The remaining 10 percent were contaminated by six different private companies. In other words, Petroecuador is clearly a major and serial contaminator.
    You may want to search for both sides of an issue before posting what can be considered propaganda.

    unless you can state your arguments in proper words i'm not likely to click on a video link just to find out
