Lazarus Tamana of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) describes the continuing struggle of the Ogoni people against environmental and human rights violations of oil extraction activities that have devasted the Niger Delta. He recounts the history of the struggle, from the execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa in 1995 up to the latest legal victory in the London courts in 2017. He believes that the only way to hold companies to account is to have enforceable international legal standards.
