Shell’s shocking toxic legacy

Some oil companies operating in the Niger Delta, such as Shell, publish oil spill investigation reports on their websites. But in the past they made false claims regarding the cause and size of oil spills to pay less compensation and avoid properly cleaning up the pollution.

Help Amnesty researchers analyse thousands of these oil spill investigation reports – use your computer or phone and dedicate as little as 30 seconds to verify the cause, location or image of an oil spill.

Your work will help us expose cases of false and misleading information and enable local communities demand proper clean-up and rehabilitation of pollution and environmental damage.

Shell’s shocking toxic legacy

Shell’s polluted present stretches decades into the past. Its toxic legacy goes beyond oil spills to include complicity in killings, after the company urged Nigeria’s military government to deal with community protests against the pollution. Today, Nigerian widow Esther Kiobel is taking on Shell for its role in the 1995 execution of her husband. Read her story and find out how you can support her decades-long struggle for justice.
