Humberto Piaguaje, a tribal leader of the indigenous Secoya people of Ecuador's northern Amazon rainforest, is pictured at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, in this handout photograph taken and released on May 19, 2011. Piaguaje is part of a delegation of indigenous and community leaders in the United States to press Chevron to comply with a landmark $18 billion legal verdict against Chevron for environmental damage remediation in an Ecuadorean court in February.
A U.S. appeals court on May 12, 2011 modified a lower court order that barred Ecuadorean villagers from collecting an $8.6 billion award against Chevron Corp for polluting the Amazon rain forest.
