Chevron on Trial: Bowoto v. Chevron
The environmental damage caused by the oil industry in the Niger Delta is well documented as are the heavy-handed tactics used by the Nigerian military to suppress people's demands for the oil companies to clean up their legacy of pollution and also share the oil revenues. San Ramon-based Chevron is being sued in a US court for its alleged role in the suppression of human rights in Nigeria. Host Karolo Aparicio speaks with Sarah Dotlich, coordinator with Justice in Nigeria Now, Nigerian singer and activist Ayo Ajishebutu, and attorney Cindy Cohn about the pending litigation against Chevron.
