The Bodo Community v Shell claim

Nigerian fishing community Bodo had been fighting Shell for years after an oil spill had destroyed their livelihoods and devastated the environment of the Delta.  Shell had offered a meagre £4,000 in compensation to the whole community. After receiving a letter from one of the fishermen we took the case to the High Court in London, and in 2016 Shell had to compensate the community £55m.

The Nigerian community that took on Shell and won: Amnesty International
