On November 10, 1995, Nigerian environmental activist and internationally acclaimed non-violent leader Ken Saro-Wiwa and 8 of his Ogoni colleagues were hanged by the then military dictator.  This 54 minute documentary tells the story of the life and work of Saro-Wiwa, the rise of the Movement for Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) and its violent suppression by the Nigerian military with the complicity of Shell Oil.

On April 27, 2009 relatives of Ken Saro Wiwa and other MOSOP members who were hanged for resisting the environmental and economic damage caused by oil extraction will bring Shell to trial in New York. Come to this benefit for Justice in Nigeria Now (JINN) to learn about the case and JINN’s work.
