Cork Ken Saro-Wiwa and Shell To Sea Protest by KD - Shell To Sea Thursday, Nov 10 2005, 11:16pmInternational Solidarity Against Shell
About thirty people protested tonight at the Shell Oil Petrol Station in Blackpool, Cork to mark the anniversary of the Shell Oil sponsored execution of the Ogoni activist Ken Saro-Wiwa. The protest was called by Cork Shell To Sea to mark the ongoing resistant and bloody struggle by the Ogoni people in Nigeria against the Shell Oil Corporation. It also aimed to promote the link between the ongoing struggle against Shell Oil in Rossport in Mayo and the international activities of the Shell Corporation which in the case of the Ogoni lands has led to huge environmental damage, resource robbery and repression at Shell’s behest. A huge banner proclaiming Nigeria 1995-Mayo 2005 was hung over the front of the Shell Station. Gardaí were in attendance but did not intervene.
