At 1.35 pm London time, the BBC has just carried the news that
the Nobel Prizewinner Ken Saro-Wiwa has been sentenced to death in
Under the military regime, there is no right of appeal to a higher court.
This issue has major implications for classes and human rights within
third world countries, for relations of inequality, exploitation and
oppression of third world countries by former imperialist countries,
for devastation of the environment, and for the accountability of major
transnational companies such as Shell.
In view of the success in spreading the word internationally about Mumia,
I wonder if subscribers see any possibilities of raising the question of
Ken Saro-Wiwa in a similar way?
