Shell and the NPDC: Just Two Sides of the Same Coin

Ogoni has unquestionably been a victim of corporate irresponsibility. Brutalized, raped, tortured and killed in state-backed terrorism. It became really very painful for us to see our own government unleash brute force with soldiers authorized to kill the Ogoni people for daring to question pervasive human right abuses that have gone on for decades.

Is Shell's Day Finally Coming - By Fegalo Nsuke

The events of last few weeks enkindled my belief in the writings of Ken Saro-Wiwa before the Ogoni Civil Disturbances Tribunal which sentenced him to death in1995. Ken, writing about the role of Shell in his persecution told the tribunal:
 
" My lord...... I repeat that we all stand before history. I and my colleagues are not the only ones on trial. Shell is here on trial and it is as well that it is represented by counsel said to be holding a watching brief. The company has, indeed, ducked this particular trial, but its day will surely come and the lessons learnt here may prove useful to it for there is no doubt in my mind that the ecological war the company has waged in the delta will be called to question sooner than later and the crimes of that war duly punished. The crime of the company's dirty wars against the Ogoni people will also be punished"
