Prominent Nigerian activist and 2010 Right Livelihood Award winner, Nnimmo Bassey to speak in Berkeley this coming Tuesday and will sign his new book To Cook a Continent. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, don’t miss this!
Let us start with a caveat about the word ‘resource’, which implies that nature’s wealth is a bounty, ready for corporate robbery. But we as humans frame this delimma of extraction incorrectly if we don’t point out the intrinsic right of nature to survive on its own terms. Most importantly, we are part of Mother Earth, not apart from her. Her rights to exist and reproduce the conditions for all species’ existence are not to be violated. ~ Nnimmo Bassey
Nnimmo will sign copies of his book “To Cook a Continent.” Discuss Chevron’s major recent explosions, fires and poisoning of the surrounding community Jan-Feb 2012 in the Niger Delta and Aug 6th in Richmond and corporate accountability.
