This story from Scotland’s Indymedia 10Nov05 (see that site for photos):

Some folks got together today in Aberdeen
to stand with the Ogoni people in remembering
Ken Saro-Wiwa and his eight Ogoni colleagues
who were executed by the Nigerian state for
campaigning against the devastation of the
Niger Delta by oil companies, especially
$hell and Chevron.

$hell was in court today, Aberdeen Sheriff Court
in perhaps the most important fatal accident
inquiry for the industry since the Piper Alpha disaster.
They have admitted that their failures
led to the deaths of two workers on one of
its platforms.
First people stood outside the court
