The Ogoni 9

In 1995, 9 activists were murdered in Nigeria by the military, for protesting against the impacts of Shell’s oil production.

There were arrests, followed by torture. For example, Baribor Bera, was forced to swallow his teeth after being beaten. This is not a movie. This really happened.

Shell knew and enabled the executions.

No one was ever held responsible.
