Ken Saro-Wiwa: his last interview, part I (part II)

Posted by http://www.remembersarowiwa.com/ - this rare interview with the writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa was screened in late November 1995 on Channel 4.

Saro-Wiwa led the Ogoni people of Nigeria in their non-violent struggle to stop the multinational oil companies, like Shell, destroying their land and livelihood.

This is the last recorded interview where Saro-Wiwa speaks about the politics of oil, art in society and the Niger Delta crisis.

On 10th November 1995, Saro-Wiwa and eight of his colleagues were executed by the Nigeria military government following a flawed trial.
