Ogoni Solidarity Ireland in conjunction with Shell to Sea.

On November 10th 1995 at Port Harcourt Prison, Nigeria, Ken Saro-Wiwa,
Dr. Barinen Klobel, John Kpuinen, Baribor Bera, Saturday Dobee, Felix Nuate, Nordu Eawoh, Paul Levurah and Daniel Gbokoo were executed on the orders of the Nigerian military government.

These brave men had been campaigning against the environmental damage that a consortium led by Shell were causing to the Ogoni lands.

The campaign had been so successful that an internal document from Shell in 1993 stated that the company have to pull out of Nigeria: "unless ruthless military operations are undertaken for smooth economic activities to commence."

Later that year military force was used in a series of brutal attacks which left 750 Ogoni dead and 30,000 homeless. In May 1994 Saro-Wiwa was imprisoned by the military police on fabricated charges of murder - two weeks later he and the eight other activists named above were sentenced to death.


Shell to Sea and Ogoni Solidarity activists will join together to commemorate Ken Saro Wiwa and the Ogoni 8, in order to show solidarity with people all over the world who must struggle against corrupt governments and rapacious multi-national companies.

Please join us and if you can bring along flowers, wreaths, candles etc.
