EPISODE DESCRIPTION

This series of podcasts by campaigning group PLATFORM (http://www.platformlondon.org) explores the Niger Delta issue through conversations with leading human rights defenders and influential activists. PLATFORM visited the Niger Delta in Autumn 2010 to conduct research and collaborate with key figures in the movement for environmental justice and social change.

The podcasts are produced by PLATFORM's remember saro-wiwa project, a UK based initiative to highlight the environmental and social impact of oil production in the Niger Delta, and to hold accountable the oil companies, in particular Shell, who benefit from the devastation. For more information and resources, please visit: http://www.remembersarowiwa.com

Episode I is concerned with Women's Rights in Niger Delta, and features an interview with women's rights activist, Emem J Okon, of Kebetkache Women's Resource Centre, based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. Kebetkache is strong advocate of gender equality and works in some of the challenging regions in the Delta. Following the recent military attacks on Gbaramatu in the Western Niger Delta, Kebetkache set up residential camps for internally dispaced women and children, providing much needed support to the civilians whose homes were destroyed by the military.
