Kiobel et al vs. Royal Dutch Shell at the US Supreme Court

Ogoni rallying call…

EDITED MESSAGE FROM OUR FRIEND, OGONI ACTIVIST, BEN IKARI (Ben is not particularly fond of Shell)

Dear Ogonis, Friends and Supports of the Ogoni struggle living in the Washington, DC. area in particular. Please endeavor to attend the upcoming Ogoni case: Kiobel et al vs. Royal Dutch Shell. The hearing or argument is taking place at the United States Supreme Court (USSC), at One First Street Washington, DC on Tuesday, February 28, 2012 (next week).

This case will hopefully help change the way American companies and foreign ones such as $hell, will do business oversees henceforth. They shall be forced to apply same standards that are operational in America when in foreign countries. Implying especially, that they shall be held accountable for human rights violations as a way to curb corporate sponsorship of the kinds of crimes, genocidal cases recorded in Ogoni and Niger delta. read more
