Again issues of human rights abuse doesn't make it to CNN or any local news papers. I came across this by accident. It is a video of the abuse of indigenous local people in Nigeria. The abuser is Shell. And me, I suppose, since I have bought gas from Shell pumps before :\ 28 minute documentary "Poison Fire"

This article, like one I read in 2007 displays how wealthy, powerful people, or corporations (that in many legal systems are considered individual people) fearlessly go wherever they want and do whatever they want and encounter no consequence to their behavior.

The article in 2007 was about Chinese moneyman in Nigeria: "It is claimed that these Asian employers cage or keep their Nigerian workers under lock with a view to achieving maximum productivity since the break or leisure time of the workers would have forcefully been absorbed into their normal working hours by the restrictions imposed on their movements." Here is a link to the story: Chinese abuse in Nigeria
