Steven Donziger: Why I Smile
Palast interviews human rights lawyer ahead of sentencing

Today, Steven Donziger will be sentenced, and faces 6 months in prison — on top of the two years of house arrest he’s already served. On the eve of his sentencing, the human rights lawyer who fought Chevron oil and its destruction of the indigenous lands of the Amazon spoke to me about why, despite being destroyed by the oil company, he is smiling.

JUST IN…

[Oct 1, 2021: New York] Steven Donziger was sentenced to the maximum six months in jail. Judge Preska said she was giving him “the proverbial 2 X 4 between the eyes.” He was denied bail pending appeal, but will continue on terms of his pre-trial release (house arrest, ankle bracelet, etc.). #FreeDonziger
