Oil Justice
On 20 May the Guardian reported the story of Gilberto Torres, a trade unionist who was kidnapped and tortured in Colombia. We are representing him in a case in the UK against multinational oil companies.

This case has prompted a unique collaboration between , War on Want and Colombian NGO COSPACC.  Oil Justice was set up with the aim to develop a new and unique community-led model to obtain justice for the entire community, not just compensation for minority.

We will bring cases, empower communities, create awareness, and lobby the Government.
