Urge Nigeria’s newly-elected President to commit to a comprehensive clean-up of pollution in the Niger Delta. His public support will push the oil industry to address the devastating impact of their bad practice.

The Nigerian government has a duty to protect the people of the Niger Delta from the impact of pollution – tell the President to effectively regulate the oil industry.

Nigeria’s government must hold the oil companies to account. The oil companies must clean up their act. Read More & Take Action »

Unfortunately, the Nigerian government is the problem, not the solution.  The oil revenues generated go to the wealthy few who control the Nigerian population through the normal channels of violence and intimidation.  I know nothing about this new president, so we'll see.  But that guy in the shell uniform is not holding a machette to clear brush.
