Chevron says they were "injured" by this cartoon!

I'm hearing this morning that Chevron filed court documents saying they were "injured" by this cartoon I did in conjunction with Amazon Watch.  (I'll post more info as soon as I get the court docs or other documentation.)  Watch the cartoon for the more entertaining version, but the nutshell version is this:  Chevron was sued by villagers in Ecuador for leaving toxic waste all over the jungle.  Chevron lost the case and was hit with a multi-billion dollar judgment.  Chevron appealed and lost that, too.  Then, Chevron filed RICO charges against the villagers and the lead attorney on the case.  You know, accusing them of racketeering and being involved in a huge conspiracy to clean up the jungle extort money from Chevron.  No WONDER the Chevron lawyers make the big bucks!  Very creative guys.  
Oh, and for bonus points, guess who just hired the lead Chevron lawyer to help him out of a certain bridge-related jam?  That's right, this guy.

    Maybe Shove Em and Run Stockholders Can be treated as the Organized Crime members . Confiscate Chevron assets and Put the CEO's in Jail and everyone else under House arrest so they Pay for their own incarceration. Don't Forget the Lawyers are Co Conspirators as well.

    Ever growing Profit reports and a fast growing Cancer are very similar.

    Big Business has never been interested in defending people, only gorging people to make themselves richer. It is Dick Cheney and Haliburton all over, and again with a twist that Chevron is not sailing the Condeleessa Rice oil freighter, but spilling its toxic waste in the pristine Amazon forest. It is time to arrest and incarcerate all Chevron directors, the CEO and those who created the despoiling of the pristine beauty of this world--no parole.
