Itsekiri women protest at ChevronTexaco's main oil terminal

Itsekiri women protest the excruciating socio-economic condition in the delta region by peacefully and non-violently taking over a ChevronTexaco airstrip at Escravos export terminal in Delta state and occupying the place for ten days with a promise to leave only on the condition that their demands for better conditions of life for citizens of the Niger Delta are met. The women were forcefully ejected from the platform, and some of them brutalized, by the military men invited by ChevronTexaco to intervene.
