A month and a day & letters by Ken Saro-Wiwa( Book )

5 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Month and A Day & Letters" is an edited version of "A Detention Diary"--Ken Saro-Wiwa's own record of his arrest and imprisonment in July 1993, and the history of the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) and his ever-increasing commitment to the Ogoni cause in Nigeria. This new edition has a foreword by the Nobel Laureate and fellow Nigerian writer, Wole Soyinka. It also includes a 'Letter to My Father' ten years on from the brutal hanging by Saro-Wiwa's eldest son, Ken Wiwa, and other letters of support (and later condolence to Ken Wiwa and his family) from world leaders, prominent writers, friends and individuals concerned with his plight and cause, delivered to and from Ken Saro-Wiwa in prison with the help of organisations such as International PEN. This book highlights his ideology, his cause, his ultimate sacrifice and the injustice of his death. It focuses on the Ogoni struggle against the multinational Shell and the Nigerian military dictatorship. It gives an insight into the reasons for Saro-Wiwa's elimination at all costs for daring to question the actions of Shell in polluting Ogoniland and for his criticisms of a corrupt regime financed largely by oil money. Ken Saro-Wiwa's story illustrates the consequences and dangers of living in a global economy powered by fossil fuel
Silence would be treason : last writings of Ken Saro-Wiwa by Ken Saro-Wiwa( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These letters and poems are invaluable fragments of a living conversation that portrays the indomitable power in humans to stay alive in the face of certain death- to stay alive even in death. Reading through the treasure trove complied here evokes intense memories of Ken's resolute struggles against an oil behemoth and a deaf autocratic government. His crusade frames one of the most tumultuous periods of Nigeria's history; his tragic story evokes anger and demands actions to resolve the crises that first led the Ogoni people to demand that Shell clean up Ogoni or clear out of the territory. It was his leadership, in great part, that forced Shell out of Ogoni in January 1993. Never did the pressures of the tyrannical government dent Ken's vision for an Ogoni free of pollution, oppression, and exploitation. He worked until his death to secure the dignity of the Ogoni and by extension, of other oppressed Nigerians and of all humanity. -- Publisher description
