Nigeria: Ken Saro-Wiwa

This is one of those cases that hasn't yet gone away. The Independent: Ken Saro-Wiwa was framed, secret evidence shows.

Well, we pretty much knew that, because Shell wouldn't otherwise have settled with the family for over $15 million this past spring. But the settlement suppressed the history, some of which has apparently now come out.

I have boycotted Shell for 15 years.
