Broadwater: Human Rights Perspective 1/17/08


A New Human Rights Perspective

with Lauren Melodia,
Organizer at the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR)

Protesting Shell on Long Island and in Nigeria: We’re in this together.

Broadwater Energy, a joint venture between Shell Oil and TransCanada, is proposing to build an industrial Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) barge in the open waters of Long Island Sound, approximately 9 miles from Rocky Point.

For years, the Broadwater discussion has focused on protecting our treasured Long Island Sound, water safety, and maritime culture and preserving water-dependent activities like fishing and boating. This Broadwater Forum at the Huntington Cinema Arts Centre will update attendees on the status of the project, but moreover will offer a new human rights perspective on the project sponsor. Shell Oil has massive LNG operations in Nigeria, where the company continues to degrade the environment, economy, and culture of Niger Delta peoples. Shell is being sued in Manhattan federal court for violating the human rights of Nigerian Nobel Peace Prize nominee Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight other Nigerians who are now dead.

Learn more about the status of the Broadwater proposal, see video footage of Ken Saro-Wiwa, and hear Lauren Melodia, a representative of the Center for Constitutional Rights (which has filed the lawsuit against Shell Oil), speak on the Saro-Wiwa case.
