Silence Would Be Treason

Summary

Shell Oil with the backing of the Nigerian government drilled for oil in the mangrove swamps of the Niger Delta. The pollution that followed destroyed farms and rivers, and contaminated the fishing and drinking water of the Ogoni people. Ken Saro-Wiwa spearheaded the resistance to this destruction, and became an icon for social justice movements everywhere. This documentary focuses on his last writings from prison, smuggled out of the institution in bread baskets in the run-up to his execution in November 1995. With reader Ben Arogundade. Presented by Noo Saro-Wiwa
