Abstract:

A documentary made before the judicial murder of the Nigerian writer and human rights activist Ken Saro-Wiwa in November 1995.

Delta force opens with the arrest of Saro-Wiwa and the subsequent implementation of "Operation Restore" in Ogoniland--the military campaign of terror waged against the Ogoni people in an attempt to suppress their environmental campaign against oil drilling by Shell International. Also includes interview excerpts with Ken Wiwa, son of Ken Saro-Wiwa.
