job Dave. Give you one simple task: don't find petroleum"
In addition to Chevron soil sampling operations, the videos include interviews with local people who complain of water contamination and health
problems they attribute to oil pollution.
One woman explains a large area that was essential an oil lake: " I still remember it, how there was oil over everything. The cows still die there.
