    Peace and Blessings Family,

    This link is a raw, closeup and personal look at Niger Delta, Nigeria. It shows how they live from day to day in their own words...the men, the women, MEND and more.

    This by National Geographic and is well done. Music by Fela.

    After viewing the above, i think we need to be boycotting Shell Oil ... or sump'n ... gosh.

    The pollution alone ... they don't care what they do to the earth or its inhabitants!

    Enjoy ... if you can.

    :heart:

    When the people of a STATE go against GOVERNMENT and BUSINESS its usually called a CIVIL WAR.

    But the WORLD and the MEDIA call them REBELS and TERRORISTS. I am not referring to INTERNATIONAL TERRORIST because this is HAPPENING RIGHT IN NIGERIA and NO WHERE ELSE.

    But

    Oh well.
