I will not let them put Steven Donziger behind bars without raising hell
Palast and supporters of the rights lawyer speak at the #FreeDonziger rally in LA

[Aug 6, 2021: Los Angeles, CA] This is the first ever case in which we have a corporation acting as a criminal prosecutor — a prosecution that is blatant retaliation for a successful lawsuit against them. This, by itself, is deeply, deeply, dangerous.

Palast and friends speak at the #FreeDonziger rally at the Chevron station on the corner of Laurel Canyon and Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles on Friday, Aug 6, 2021.

Chevron set out to destroy Steven Donziger, to make an example of a human rights lawyer that dares take on the petroleum pirates.

And if you think I take this personally — yeah, you bet! I do because the same corporation tried to get a reporter fired for reporting on their obstruction of justice and their poisoning of the Amazon jungle. That reporter was me. I beat them and I can’t let them — I will not let them — put Donziger behind bars without raising hell!
