ShellGuilty Rallies in NYC and London Today!
If you haven’t already heard, the Wiwa v. Shell trial was postponed yesterday. No new opening date was given and rumors are swirling that Shell must be scrambling at the 11th hour for an out-of-court settlement. It’s hard not to speculate but the plaintiffs, defendants, and court haven’t said anything else about it.
However, following on a large protest in Ogoni yesterday where soldiers arrested dozens of people trying to reach the rallying point, solidarity RALLIES WILL GO ON AS SCHEDULED in New York and London!
NEW YORK: 12 noon at Foley Square near the courthouse.
LONDON: 8:30am at the Shell Center near Waterloo station
There has been a flurry of media reporting that surely has Shell feeling the pressure. We will hold our rallies today to continue turning up the heat on Shell to end its abuses in Nigeria and to show solidarity and support for the Ogoni and other Niger Delta peoples struggling for an end to the oil-fueled oppression and environmental degradation they have faced for far too long.
If you are in or near New York or London, please join us and spread the word!
