The Human Cost of Energy Chevron's Continuing Role in Financing Oppression and Profiting from Human Rights Abuses in Military-Ruled Burma (Myanmar)

This report documents Chevron’s ongo-ing role in financing the military regime in Burma (Myanmar) and profiting from human rights abuses on the Yadana nat-ural gas development project. It is based in part on over 70 formal interviews over the past five years, documenting condi-tions in the region of Burma affected by the Yadana gas pipeline, and corroborat-ing information from ERI’s network of contacts, as well as ERI’s prior experi-ence in documenting abuses on the Ya-dana Project dating back to 1994, and on documents that have become public through the groundbreaking human rights lawsuit Doe v. Unocal. ERI has published three previous reports on the Yadana Project, and filed Doe v. Unocal in U.S. courts on behalf of victims of the pipeline project who had suffered rape, murder, torture, and pervasive slave labor.
