The Living Memorial

Before I came to Bangladesh, I worked for 18 months for the Remember Saro-Wiwa campaign.

One of our biggest projects was the creation of a new, Living Memorial to the murdered activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, and his eight Ogoni colleagues who were also hung in 1995 for leading non-violent protests against the oil industry in the Niger Delta.

The Living Memorial is a landmark new piece of art, not just for London, but the whole of Britain. And it was launched on November 10th, the 11th anniversary of Saro-Wiwa’s execution.

The Guardian are RSW’s media partners and have just posted an extensive flash page about the Living Memorial here . Enjoy.
