Episode 1: 15 years of not getting justice
As part of the 15th anniversary of the execution of the Ogoni nine, Remember Saro-Wiwa has produced a series of interviews with leading human rights defenders in the Niger Delta.
Episode I is concerned with Women’s Rights in Niger Delta, and features an interview with women’s rights activist, Emem J Okon, of Kebetkache Women’s Resource Centre, based in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. Kebetkache is strong advocate of gender equality and works in some of the challenging regions in the Delta. Following the recent military attacks on Gbaramatu in the Western Niger Delta, Kebetkache set up residential camps for internally dispaced women and children, providing much needed support to the civilians whose homes were destroyed by the military.
