Episode Description:

This week Indymedia presents a bit of back story for a case that is currently being tried in New York City. Shell Oil is accused of being behind the execution of Ken Saro Wiwa, a Nigerian writer and activist who was tortured and hanged along with other Nigerian protesters, who had been campaigning against the environmental devastation of the big oil companies who exploit the Niger Delta. Our piece, called “Cracking Shell” was filmed a while back and, among others, features Damu Smith, American activist, who campaigned to bring Shell to justice.

The other piece this week is called “Salaam Garage,” named for a socially conscious travel organization. The concept is to take media-savy people on a trip that relates to a local NGO somewhere in the world, inviting participants to document their trip and tell the story back home.
