In solidarity with the Ogoni people, Aberdeen

Aberdeen Shell Ogoni 2


Some folks got together today in Aberdeen to stand with the Ogoni people in remembering Ken Saro-Wiwa and his eight Ogoni colleagues who were executed by the Nigerian state for campaigning against the devastation of the Niger Delta by oil companies, especially $hell and Chevron. $hell was in court today, Aberdeen Sheriff Court in perhaps the most important fatal accident inquiry for the industry since the Piper Alpha disaster. They have admitted that their failures led to the deaths of two workers on one of its platforms.

First people stood outside the court

From there out to the $hell offices in tullos where a quiet vigil with lanterns and poetry was held .
Office workers leaving were offered a leaflet and most friendly accepted

Lastly on to the $hell offices on Anderson drivewhere a long banner was placed in time for some rush hour traffic, drawing the link between the Ogoni people and the Irish people
