Amnesty International pressure results in webchat hosted by Shell on their human rights and environmental record

Some good news: as a result of our campaigning, including a barrage of tweets, Shell have agreed to host a webchat about the Niger Delta on their Shell Dialogues site, at 2pm on Thursday 23rd July.

At the start of this month we published a damning report revealing how decades of environmental damage by Shell and other oil companies in the Niger Delta has caused serious violations of local people's human rights - leaving them to drink polluted water, eat contaminated fish, farm on spoiled land, and breath air that stinks of oil and gas.

We need to take this opportunity to ask tough questions about Shell’s human rights and environmental practices in the Niger Delta and we’d like your help!
