Subject: Ogoni Remembers Her Murdered Leaders & Rejects Shell

PRESS RELEASE 
November 10, 2000 
 
OGONI REMEMBERS HER MURDERED LEADERS AND CONTINUES TO REJECT SHELL 
 
In the month which marks the 5th Anniversary of the murder of Ken 
Saro Wiwa and his eight compatriots, Royal Dutch Shell declares an 
outragious profit of ú32.2 billion in 9 months of operation in the 
year 2000. 
Reacting to the report, Mrs. Phido - MOSOP-UK President retorts "This 
is insane. Shell has always proved to everyone that its focus in 
business is about profit making and about people. For a company that 
produces 50% of Nigeria's oil and the Niger Delta remains as poverty 
ridden as it is today, then I think Shell should hide its head in 
shame." 
 
Commenting on the recent desperate attempts by Shell to resume oil 
production in Ogoni, Mrs. Phido wondered "Why is Shell not content 
with the blood money it has made over the years from Ogoniland? Why 
is the profit of ú2.2 billion not good enough for Shell that it 
insists on drilling the last drop of oil in Ogoni? For Shell it is a 
matter of investment and profits but for the peasant Ogoni man, woman 
and child, it is a matter of destroying our only source of 
livelihood." Ogonis are subsistence farmers and fishermen whose 
environment has been destroyed by years of reckless oil exploration 
techniques by Shell and the other oil companies in Nigeria. Mrs. 
Phido's final words to Shell is to stay well clear of Ogoniland. "Our 
leaders died demanding for justice for Ogoni. We will not let their 
blood be spilt in vain. Ogoni will continue to resist Shell's dubious 
attempts at deceiving our people again. Shell should be content with 
the blood of Ken Saro Wiwa which has been shed on the land." She 
further enumerated 15 immediate reasons why Ogoni rejects Shell: 
 
15 REASONS WHY OGONI REJECTS THE RETURN OF SHELL 
 
1. Shell drills Ogoni blood. This is by destroying our environment - 
our only source of livelihood and making it a wasteland. 
 
2. Shell's environmental records remains the poorest in the Niger 
Delta of Nigeria. According to the worldwide find for nature, Shell's 
flares in Nigeria are the single largest cause of global warming in 
the region. 
 
3. Shell applies racist double standard approach of oil exploration 
in Ogoni causing malicious damage on our environment while it adopts 
a different environmental practices in Europe and the USA. 
 
4. Shell continues to owe the Ogoni people oil royalties and mining 
rents for 40 years amounting to about $6 billion and another $4 
billion for environmental devastation. 
 
5. Shell refuses to bury its oil pipelines in Ogoni. These dangerous 
pipelines which crisscross farms, streams and village paths defy 
health and safety standards which are extremely hazardous especially 
to Ogoni children. 
 
6. Shell continues to flare poisonous gases in our environment. This 
has been the case 24 hours a day since 1958 causing untold health 
risk to our unborn children, our pregnant women and the generality of 
the Ogoni people. 
 
7. Shell refuses to clean its oil spills in Ogoni. This has degraded 
our farmlands, rivers and streams thereby depriving the Ogoni people 
of their source of livelihood resulting to endemic poverty, 
malnutrition and starvation. 
 
8. Shell has profited immensely from the estimated $100 billion oil 
taken from Ogoniland. While year 2000 three-quarters result is 
estimated at ú2.2 Billion, Shell continues to circumvent the judicial 
system in Nigeria by refusing to pay the court compensation order of 
$40 million to the Ejaama Ebubu 1970 oil spill. 
 
9. Shell sponsored genocide in Ogoniland (1993-1996) by providing 
income and weapons to the Nigerian military - Paul Okuntimu, Dauda 
Komo & others - who declared war on the Ogonis resulting to the 
killing of over 2000 Ogonis, innumerable maiming, raping, looting and 
the general destruction of Ogoni villages. 
 
10. Shell's complicity in the hanging of 9 Ogoni leaders - Ken Saro 
Wiwa & others is an issue that Ogonis will neither forget nor 
forgive. Shell employed the services of a solicitor - O.C.J Okocha - 
to hold brief on its behalf at the kangaroo court proceedings which 
eventually murdered the Ogoni patriots. 
 
11. Shell refuses to implement the environmental impact assessment of 
its exploration activities in Ogoniland as was recommended by the 
united nation's fact-finding mission to Ogoni. 
 
12. Shell is a corporate liar, it continuously use its high profile 
spin doctors & public relations machinery to mislead the public about 
its attitude to environmental issues. Its much publicized business 
policies on environment, health & safety and good community relations 
is not adopted in neither Ogoni nor the Niger Delta. 
 
13. Shell to date refuses to meet with the Ogonis and address the 
problems, which it has caused in our land. Rather it is forcing 
itself on the Ogonis thereby violating our rights to contribute to 
and participate on issues concerning our welfare. 
 
14. Shell encourages bribery and corruption in Ogoniland. 
 
15. Shell was declared persona non grata in Ogoniland by all Ogonis 
on Ogoni Day - January 4, 1993. This remains the verdict of Ogonis on 
Shell.

RED ALERTA PETROLERA-ORINOCO OILWATCH 
e-mail: AMIGRANSA/ORINOCO-OILWATCH <amigrans@...> 
 
En el mes de agosto de 1996,la organizaci█n ambientalista venezolana 
AMIGRANSA- Sociedad de Amigos en defensa de la Gran Sabana, 
promueve la creaci█n de la RED ALERTA PETROLERA (Orinoco-Oilwatch), 
filial venezolana de OILWATCH, organizaci█n internacional de resistencia 
a la actividad petrolera en los tr█picos y vigilancia de los impactos 
ambientales y sociales de dicha actividad, nacida en Quito Ecuador. 
La RED ALERTA PETROLERA se ha propuesto como objetivo especial 
investigar los efectos socio-ambientales de la apertura petrolera 
venezolana al capital privado extranjero y nacional,que se inicio con 
"asociaciones estrat╚gicas" en la faja petrol╠fera del Orinoco, 
joint ventures segÖn esquema de "ganancias compartidas" y 
la entrega de campos productivos maduros para su ocupaci█n por 
empresas privadas. Estas operaciones cubren el pa╠s de extremo a extremo, 
pero se ha considerado prioritario por su urgencia y su gravedad, 
el estudio de la problemĚtica de la zona Delta del Orinoco/ Paria en 
el extremo oriente del pa╠s, en la desembocadura del R╠o Orinoco, 
habitat de la ╚tnia ind╠gena Warao. e igualmente las secuelas de la 
explotaci█n de petr█leo,  carb█n y gas en Zulia y la deuda ecol█gica. 
Sus voceros forman parte de grupos ecologistas, culturales, 
instituciones academicas y de investigacion, grupos defensores de los 
derechos humanos,de Pueblos Indigenas, grupos de pescadores, y otras 
poblaciones localesafectados por los impactos de los mega-proyectos petroleros.
