"Shell has been extracting oil in the Niger Delta area of Nigeria for over 50 years. They are the major operator there and have made billions and billions of dollars out of the country. And what have the people of the Niger Delta received in return? For the vast majority, they have been subjected to grinding poverty, little access to clean water, a polluted environment and ongoing violence and conflict." Vivienne Westwood Blog
