These photographs were taken today at the unveiling of the living monument to Ken Saro Wiwa. It is on display outside the Guardian offices on Farringdon Road until 24 November, after which it will be on a tour of British cities for the next two years. If you are in London I would recommend you take the time to see it
Nigerian-born sculptor Sokari Douglas Camp, used the image of a rickety vehicle as it has has many resonances - as a pollutant, a carrier of supplies and information, and as a metaphor for Saro-Wiwa's activism. For me it is a superb sculpture which is a fitting tribute to a great man.
Around the bus is an inscription "I accuse the oil companies of practicing genocide afainst the Ogoni"
