Shell's Shame in Nigeria Continues
If there is one country where Shell's broken promises ring hollower than anywhere else it is in Nigeria.
For decades, the company's operations in the country have been mired by pollution and community protests which in turn have been met with endless cycles of violence against protestors.
The communities in the Niger Delta have been protesting for decades against this chronic pollution and grinding poverty. But year after year, promises from Shell of a better future for the local communities have been found to be as broken as brittle bones.
