The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP), at its Steering Committee meeting held in Port Harcourt today, set up and inaugurated a 9-member committee to plan and organize the upcoming fourth (4th) anniversary of the release of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) report on the state of the Ogoni environment as well as the World Indigenous Peoples Day, which comes up on August 4 and 9, 2015 respectively.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has warned the Ogoni people about the fake report claiming that billions of dollars would soon be paid to the Ogoni people as hydrocarbon pollution compensation in line with UNEP recommendations. As such, Ogonis in their numbers on daily bases congregate at the offices of the National Identity Card Commission along Port Harcourt/Aba Expressway, Port Harcourt for issuance of the card in readiness for the reparation.

As the World Environmental Day draws closer, the Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has warned that if by June 30, the Federal Government of Nigeria fails to emplace any genuine process of restoring the Ogoni environment in line with the globally supported recommendations of the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP), it would have no choice than to mobilize the Ogoni people and her friends to march on Abuja in protest against its murderous inaction on the matter. The UNEP environmental assessment report on Ogoniland was formally presented to the Nigerian Government in August 2011.

My fellow Ogoni people, we are here today not as winners in any lottery game but we are here in celebration of our freedom and the liberty that we won on January 4th, 1993 when our forbears led by our late mentor and leader, Ken Saro-Wiwa took that giant leap and over three hundred thousand Ogoni people marched for national rebirth, national rediscovery and a journey for dignity and pride.

THE Movement for the Survival of Ogoni People (MOSOP) has demonstrated in the streets of Port Harcourt, in Rivers State, in protest of what it described as ‘political enslavement and environmental injustice’.

The Movement for the Survival of the Ogoni People (MOSOP) has received with deep shock and vehemently condemns in strong terms the mindless and heinous murder in cold blood of the civil society actor and human rights defender, Barrister Ken Asuwete yesterday in Port Harcourt. MOSOP has thus called on the Government of Rivers State and the security agencies to leave no stone unturned in making sure that the perpetrators and their sponsors are apprehended and brought to justice.
