Hot Spot! Nigeria

  • Flow of Oil Wealth Skirts Nigerian Village
    Norimitsu Onishi (Dec. 22, 2002) NYTimes

    He continued: "The Americans who claim to be freedom fighters, the Americans who claim to want to better mankind for us, they are the devil. They are worse than Lucifer. Can you tell me they are not worse than Saddam Hussein or Osama bin Laden? To me, they are worse. I want to be clear. Americans are like terrorists to us. They come, take and leave without putting back.

    "The only security is for them to improve the lot of the people. If they don't, Chevron is sitting on a powder keg."


  • Nigerian Women's Protest Wins Oil Company Attention
    Editorial (July 20, 2002) Minneapolis Star Tribune via CommonDreams

    In the best traditions of Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, several hundred Nigerian women took a nonviolent stand for their country. Ranging in age from 25 to 90 -- some with infants strapped to their backs -- the women held a successful sit-in at a ChevronTexaco Escravos facility in Nigeria's oil-rich delta.

    Without firing a shot or injuring a soul, they shut down an operation that produces a half million barrels of oil a day. In the end, they accomplished what their men could not, and what their government should have done long ago.
