Ten Year Anniversary of the Death of Ken Saro-Wiwa

Nigerian environmental activist, Ken Saro-Wiwa,
was executed by his government on November 10, 1995.
Saro-wiwa raised international awareness of
environmental degradation in the Niger Delta region of
southern Nigeria caused by oil extraction. Terra
Verde will look at developments over the ten years
since Saro-Wiwa’s death, including a landmark case
against Chevron working its way through the
California courts, brought by plaintiffs from the
Niger Delta.
