THE KEN SARO-WIWA FOUNDATION

............................................................................................................................

The Ken Saro-Wiwa Foundation was formally established in October, 2004 to honor the memory and continue the work of the Nigerian poet and novelist, environmental and community activist, Kenule Saro-Wiwa, whose non-violent campaign to protect the rights, livelihood and environment of the Ogoni people inspired ordinary people throughout the world. Ken Saro-Wiwa and eight of his compatriots were executed by the military government of Nigeria after a show trial on November 10, 1995. The Foundation stands not only as a monument to their memory, but as a vibrant institution dedicated to the principles for which they died.
