The 21 essays in this collection explore key global issues including climate change, envi­ronmental pollution, the rights of minority groups in the face of abuse by large corporations, and promoting diversity and equality in all its aspects. The death-row correspondence, has been the catalyst for this collection, which I hope, will inspire us to continue the justice and equality quest of Ken Saro-Wiwa. —  Gemma Irvine, Vice-President Equality & Diversity, Maynooth University

I hope this rich and diverse collection of essays and poems goes some way to fulfilling his wishes, and strengthens in us – writers, poets and readers – the resolve to tell the stories of marginalised and oppressed communities everywhere. Our voices can help create a world where justice and equality are the cornerstone of our societies.– Helen Fallon, Deputy University Librarian
