Activists say Nigerian soldiers have killed between 26 and 200 people since December 30. Ijaw youth set that day as the deadline for multinational oil companies to leave the country. Demonstrations are still illegal although the military regime says it is no longer imposing martial law.

Guests:

  • Bronwen Manby, researcher for Human Rights Watch.
  • Oronto Douglas, Ijaw spokesperson, environmental attorney, head of Environmental Rights Action and founder of Chicoco, a pan-delta resistance movement.
