There are now more than 1.5 billion people living on less than $2 a day in poor countries rich in natural resources, and they want to know: Where does the money go? Armed with that information, communities could fight corruption and hold their governments accountable.
Transparency is the law – a law that Oxfam supporters like you helped to pass – but Big Oil companies are doing everything they can to try and keep their secrets, including suing the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to try and stop this law from being enforced.
Enough is enough. People in poor communities deserve to know where the money made from oil in their own backyards is going.
Tell Exxon Mobil, BP, Chevron, and Shell: Drop your lawsuit against the SEC. Stop your war against transparency!
