Claiming Rights and Resources : Injustice, Oil and Violence in Nigeria
Ten years after the executions of writer and human rights campaigner Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight Ogoni companions in Nigeria, the peoples of the oil-producing Niger Delta continue to face death and devastation at the hands of the security forces. It is time for the Nigerian government to end the impunity enjoyed by the security forces. It is time for transnational oil corporations and the international community to ensure that business operates within the framework of international human rights standards for companies. Amnesty International is launching a campaign in support of the struggle of the Niger Delta peoples against deprivation and injustice, and for access to their rights and for the freedom to claim their rights.
