This is primarily a talk about human rights abuses in Nigeria that have reached the High Court here. It could be argued that it doesn't affect us Europeans though it does mean that our fuel comes possibly at a cheaper price and it could also be argued that by using fuel we are complicit in this. I also find it curious that I doubt if any multinational would behave in this way in Western Europe, is there a racism here?
I just found a bit of background reading here
At the Amnesty Office you will be able to hear the latest news on legal actions in the High Court against Royal Dutch Shell in the Niger Delta.
Kate Sannegadu, a member of the City and Tower Hamlets Amnesty Group, is a lawyer with Leigh and Day, the solicitors who are taking the case to the High Court.
Kate has recently returned from Nigeria and will give a talk and answer questions at 8pm, Tuesday November 13, Seminar Room, Amnesty International , Human Rights Action Centre 17-25 New Inn Yard London EC2A 3EA
I will wait at the reception desk until about 19.55 to say hello to meetup members, you can recognise me from my photo and I will do my best to recognise all of you that have put up a pic on your RSVP.
