[Ken's work in the early 1990s was not only one of the most successful indigenous resistance efforts to the oil industry, but the inspiration for a string of other efforts across the Niger Delta and around the world. Please be there to honor his memory, -Carwil James]

Dear Friends - Please join me this Thur & invite all
your friends! We must not forget our friends (Ken,
Terry, Marla) who've given their lives to stand in
definance of what Saro-Wiwa termed "The Slick
Alliance" - Big Oil, corrupt militaries & government
greed.

Join us this Thursday, November 10th, for an
International Day of Action and Remembrance with
people around the world to honor the legacy of Ken
Saro-Wiwa and the Ogoni, who were executed 10 years
ago for leading a successful, nonviolent campaign
against oil pollution and greed.

We will STAND UP! to Big Oil in solidarity with the
Ogoni and indigenous peoples around the world to
remember Saro-Wiwa, cast shame on Shell & renew our
promise for environmental justice! Bring candles,
poetry, prayers & friends (and don't forget warm
clothes!).

Date/time: Thursday, Nov. 10, 6:00 PM
