Ogonis Are Poised To Resist $hell and Jonathan's Government By Any Means Necessary.

The attention of the Ogoni Children Cultural and Fundamental Council
(OCAFAC-USA) has been drawn to $hell and the Nigerian genocidal
government's attempts to force into Ogoni oilfields. OCAFAC vehemently
frowns at this threatening and oppressive behavior coming from these
agents of death. They launch this threat every time Ogonis and their
friends around the world are preparing to celebrate Jan. 4 (Ogoni Day).
They do same before Nov. 10, when we are preparing to commemorate Ken
Saro-Wiwa and 8 others murder anniversary. Ogonis are poised to resist

We are not only appalled by the irresponsible behavior of these duo.
Rather, we are also shocked that after the Ogoni Nine and about six
thousand children, women and men were murdered in cold blood in what
appears to be a global conspiratorial action for our oil to continue
flowing, the government (whose constitutional responsibility is to
protect the Ogoni people and others, and act in manners consistent with
international protocols on their economic well-being, self
determination) has refused bluntly to look into the complaints or
rightful demands of the people. All they think with their international
supporters is oil and how to kill for it to flow unhindered.

International non-state organizations such as United Nations, European
Union and the African Union have done nothing to pressure Nigeria to do
anything respectful and tangible aimed at resolving the conflict. The
United States government whose interest the oil Nigeria is killing our
people for serves most has tightened its lips, just like former Pres.
Bill Clinton played the so-called diplomatic sanction thing in 1995.
This and other inaction permitted the hanging of the Ogoni Nine. Why?
because of America's oil needs, yet it will place a moratorium on the
Gulf oil business to protect the environment.

Ogoni is bleeding! Where then is the justice; where is the United
Nations; the United States and so forth? Where is the signal that peace
will ever reign in the world when injustice pervades the globe such
that governments connive in the oppression of weaker people, especially
those of Africa or the black skinned people?

Because of what we know, Nigeria and $hell should begin digging larger
graves and mass prisons because Ogoni will resist their greed and
disrespect for our land and people. Ogonis all over the world are
thrown into hurts each time these evil geniuses spit fire like dragons
and anacondas. We are, however prepared to protect our homeland by any
means available and necessary.

Ogonis are Americans too! We are paying taxes, and what affects our
people at home affects us. We have sleepless nights at such times as
this. Ogonis are demanding equal protection and support from the
American government as applied to Israel. We are human beings too and
so protected by the Equal Protection Act.

Finally, the so-called Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)
and its baby NPDC should steer clear from Ogoni oilfields until the 20
years provisions of the Ogoni Bill of Rights for which Saro-Wiwa and
others were murdered have been satisfactorily met, and the Nine slain
leaders retried or exonerated because they had committed no crimes but
killed by the $hell and the Nigerian government.

OCAFAC is already working with MOSOP, Ogoni Solidarity Forum and other
grassroots groups to mobilizing the people for a massive showdown
should any attempt to forcefully steal Ogoni oil is made real. Ogoni
has lost almost everything and so this is not the time to quit. We must
stand up and defend our land. It's our life and so no one, not the
government can lay claim to it. We demand respect from Nigeria, $hell,
the company's shareholders and governments which patronize/invest in
the blood oil in Ogoni/Niger delta.

To the Dutch Parliamentarian Sharon Gesthuizen, who is reported to be
heading to Niger Delta to investigate the activities of Shell (an Anglo
Dutch company), "in a bid to get balanced and unbiased reports on the
current situation in the region.," OCAFAC demands that you please
recall your greedy and deadly company $hell to Holland so it can do
what it is doing to the Ogoni children at home for us to see how you
would like it. The British government and all others of Europe, the
time has come for you to unite and recall $hell home. For how long must
Africans die for your exploitation to flourish and build your

Ogoni and Niger delta have had enough threats, deaths all for Europe
and America to drink blood oil. We thought the BP recklessness in the
Gulf of Mexico would change the way Euro-America deal with oil matters
in Africa. Sadly, the greed has increased even when these deadly
measures and outright disobedience to proper procedure are not accepted
in either Europe or America. Now, where is the equality or justice when
double standard is fragrantly permitted in the black continent?
Injustice anywhere remains a threat to justice everywhere, as Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr. rightly declared. No justice, no peace!

Ogoni children, youths, women and men demand equality and justice now
as the people prepares for a massive showdown with $hell and the
Nigerian government headed by a Niger deltan, Dr. Jonathan Goodluck who
is not different from the cabal of the so-called majority ethnic groups
which have raped and ruined Ogoni/Niger delta for the last 50 backward
