Recently unclassified documents reveal that during the 90’s Mandela appealed for oil sanctions against Nigeria for the execution of environmental and indigenous rights activist Saro-Riwa, and Britain, being the queen of imperialist shits, rejected it outright. Why? To “protect” Shell’s corporate interests of course!
What’s this, all that mumbo-jumbo about exporting freedom and upholding democracy is just that, mumbo-jumbo? Color me shocked, who would’ve thought?! To those of you shocked by this, don’t be. Britain is still a colonial power, and is no friend of the third world. Nigeria was kicked out of the Commonwealth of Nations for three years due to this, but as we can see that was just a “symbolic statement” without substance.
This is just the usual conduct of the global bourgeoisie, all that hogwash about “freedom” and “human rights” is just that: hogwash.
