They were killed in 1995 because of their sttuggle against Shell and other oil companies in the Niger Delta. Climate justice activits commemmorate Nov 10 as the Global Day of Action Against Oil as part of the Global Month of Action Against Dirty Energy.

Since 2010, we have joined the global commemoration. Here we give tribute to Ken Saro Wiwa, and the lives of Filipino environmentalists and human rights defenders who sacrificed their lives for the mining struggle.
