    It's amazing to see citizens stand up for what is right, and when these citizens are women, this makes it more applauding.

    We can only achieve a better Nigeria, when we hold our leaders accountable for their actions.

    Kudos to these amazing women!!!

    Reposted from @nytimes Nigeria’s Niger Delta region is one of the most polluted places on Earth. Now the women who do most of the fishing there are trying to call the oil companies to account.⁣

    Companies like Chevron, Shell and Eni have made billions in profits in the vast Niger Delta region in the last decades. But now some are pulling out — and they are leaving utter ruin in their wake, according to government monitors and environmental and human rights organizations.⁣

    A group of fisherwomen, worried by a new oil slick, discovered a broken pipe that was leaking oil and alerted local leaders, who informed Chevron’s Nigerian subsidiary. At first, Chevron ignored them, the local leaders said, and oil continued to flow through the line. Soon, black oil stained the roots of the mangroves — saltwater-loving trees that act as nurseries for fish and shellfish — further threatening the delicate ecosystem of the Niger Delta, which was once teeming with plant and animal life.⁣

    So began a battle between Chevron and hundreds of fisherwomen in the Niger Delta. Chevron denies that oil was spilling from its pipes. But the women insisted that this was just another instance of oil companies refusing to take responsibility, and decided to take the fight to the oil company’s doors. Women from 18 communities staged a mass-scale all-women protest, occupying local Chevron facilities and vowing to stay until an investigation into the oil spills began.⁣

    “You want to kill us with your oil,” Onitsha Joseph, a fisherwoman who lives above the twisting rivers of the Niger Delta, said, growing emotional. “We’ll come to you so you can kill us yourselves. In person.” Tap the link in our bio to read more. Photos @yagazieemezi⁣
