Shell and the military dictatorship of Nigeria have earned billions at the expense of the people of the Niger Delta, who now live in extreme poverty.
Shell has imported weapons for the Nigerian military, its business partner in the oil business.
Shell is fully aware of its environmental devastation in Nigeria. In the early 1990s, the head of Shell Nigeria’s environmental oversight team quit to protest Shell’s environmental racism in Nigeria.
Shell alone provides over 40% of the Nigerian dictatorship’s budget, and has the influence to force the military to reform and insure that a just and democratic government is formed which represents the interest of all Nigerians.
