Today we remember the Ogoni nine, who were murdered 26 years ago on November 10, 1995. To honour them, we put up 9 posters all across the Netherlands. We remember them in places related to Shell and its business, but also in places important to Shell’s colonial history.

“Do you remember 300.000 Ogoni people on the streets in ‘93? To end the ecological war fueled by the corporate greed?” Repression came down hard on the Ogoni people and kill-and-go police started causing harm to the communities. Crops were destroyed, people died and in an attempt to destroy the movement leadership was scammed and a fake trial sentenced them to death which was executed on 10th of November 1995.

Thanks to Ken Saro Wiwa who was one of the Ogoni nine who paid with the their lives to protect their lands from oil-violation, people have kept learning about the long history of the fight and people are still fighting for justice 26 years later. We honor the struggle of MOSOP (movement for survival of Ogoni people) and other grassroots who are now taking to the streets to protest that the heroes - the land defenders, the Ogoni 9 need to be exonerated.

Ogoniland has produced $30 billion worth of oil - mainly through a joined venture in which government is partnered with Shell (30%). Yet Shell still hasn't cleaned up the damages they caused and instead continues to violate human rights in Nigeria through corruption, infiltrating government and outrageous environmental destruction.

A company that bases its businessmodel on colonial crimes, corruption and human rights abuses can never be part of a just future or even a just present.
