Day of Remembrance of the Heroes and Martyrs in the Struggle Against Mining, Oil and Gas
Today, on the 16th anniversary of the murder of Nigerian writer Ken Saro-Wiwa - a day of remembrance of the victims of mining, oil and gas - Friends of the Earth International releases a new report and renews its commitment to the struggle for justice for the communities who suffer the consequences of extractive industries.
The new report, released on November 10, is entitled ‘Memory, Truth and Justice for Heroes in the Resistance against Mining Oil and Gas’ and exposes the murders of many human rights and environmental activists all over the world for defending their rights and natural resources.
Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight other Ogoni leaders were executed on 10 November 1995 for speaking out against the impact of Shell and other oil companies in the Niger Delta.
