This is the fourth piece in Jim Pollock’s politically-oriented series printed on hemp-content paper. This piece was done as a benefit for the Center for Constitutional Rights The content of this piece is based on events which are still taking place in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. Here is a brief excerpt taken from Jim’s site: “Oil was discovered by Shell in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria in 1958. Nine hundred million barrels of oil with an estimated value of 30 billion US dollars have been mined from that area since then. In those three decades of oil exploration, it has been alleged that Shell Oil Company has decimated fertile farmlands and poisoned bountiful fishing grounds.
The inhabitants of this area are known as the Ogoni people. . .”
