Anyone there, Shell?

In November 2005, the Nigeria’s federal high court found gas flaring to be a “gross violation” of the human right to life and dignity as well as a violation of the Nigerian constitution, and ordered you to immediately stop it in Iwherekan community, Delta state. You were meant to submit a detailed plan of action by April 30, 2007. Perhaps it’s lost in the post, but Eco Soundings notes that last week you announced profits of nearly £38m a day, even as people living in Iwherekan survived on less than $1 a day.

Is this the action of a responsible multinational?,,2074800,00.html and its sister websites,,,,, and are all owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia article.
