Without Walls: Interview With Ken Saro-Wiwa

This rare interview with the writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa was screened in late November 1995 on Channel 4. Saro-Wiwa led the Ogoni people of Nigeria in their non-violent struggle to stop the multinational oil companies, like Shell, destroying their land and livelihood. This is the last recorded interview where Saro-Wiwa speaks about the politics of oil, art in society and the Niger Delta crisis. On 10th November 1995, Saro-Wiwa and eight of his colleagues were executed by the Nigerian military government following a flawed trial.
