No compensation can bring back the dead or restore the health of those injured. However, compensation should be offered. The best compensation is to desist from injuring the environment further and to clean up the pollution that they have caused.

Background briefing
Perenco - Oil company

Perenco is a Anglo-French company which has a huge oil project in Peruís northern Amazon.
This is an area inhabited by at least two vulnerable uncontacted tribes who may well be destroyed by Perencoís work there.
One of the groups is believed to be a sub-group of the Waorani and another is known as the Pananujuri.
No one is sure how many of them there are.

Standing in solidarity will stop big oil companies from polluting sacred indigenous lands and destroying their culture.

No shareholder in their right mind out ever sell out their shares of Texaco. What their concern is the possible decline in their holding over bad press like this. Their thinking is pay off Ecuador with a massive sum (similiar to BP in the states), take the loss, and move on. They will recoup their profits in no time.

noted....thank you, Cal. It is good for the share holders to know what their company has done....Increased knowledge may lead to increased consiousness which may lead to action against such horrors.

No member of the oil & gas industry has ever shown "good" judgement. They care about profit. Nothing else (especially the environment) matters.
