SHELL Petroleum Development Corporation (SPDC) and the community of Rukpokwu, Rivers State
In this document, Amnesty International considers the case of the Rukpokwu community an example of how the right to adequate standard of living, including adequate food, and the right to water have been violated as a result of the environmental damage caused by the oil spill from a leaking pipeline. It provides a case history and refers to the UN Norms for Business which should be applied. Neither Shell nor the Nigerian government have cleaned up after the spill on December 3 2003.
