Caroline welcomes Steven Donziger, indefatigable lawyer, lead organizer of 30,000 indigenous people in their class action suit agains Chevron for their apocalyptic degradation of Indigenous land in Ecuador. Chevron was ordered to pay $18 billion, later reduced to $9.5 billion. None of which has been paid. Judge Lewis Kaplan hired a private law firm to prosecute him. Steven refused to turn over his cell phone and computer, whereupon Judge Lewis Kaplan ordered him to be under house arrest, from whence he joins us today.
