correaMCSquared PR amended its federal lobbying Feb. 23 to say work for Ecuador to highlight environmental damage caused by Texaco, which was acquired by Chevron, included efforts to counter Chevron's "PR strategy to harm the reputation of Ecuador."

MCSquared says it visited over 90 contaminated sites; invited celebrities and international personalities to Ecuador and handled trip support (logistics, security, ground/air transportation, catering); arranged press conferences; promoted tourism, prepared video reports in Ecuador, US, Central/South America and Europe; bought advertising, and monitored media.

The firm also arranged the visit of Guillaume Long, Ecuador's Minister of Knowledge and Human Talent, to New School University in New York City.

McSquared denies lobbying US government officials but says it engaged in political activity by doing media outreach in connection to President Rafael Correa's trip to the US in April.
