Abstract:

A documentary made before the judicial murder of the Nigerian writer and human rights activist Ken Saro-Wiwa in November 1995. Delta Force tells the story of the non-violent efforts of the Ogoni people to halt 30 years of environmental damage, suffering and inequality on the Niger Delta. 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.
