EarthFirst! Nigeria needs support

I read this post on the global Indymedia site earlier today. I thought I'd also post it here because I have been in contact with Negbenebor Winters, who asked me to please circulate this amongst as many activists as possible.
EF! Nigeria is just starting out and could use support. Most people reading this are probably familiar with the environmental degredation being propagated by oil companies in Nigeria. If you're interested in learning more, or just want to drop them a line of support, please email Negbenebor Winters (email address provided below).
