    Abstract

    International solidarity between Africa and Ireland These remarkable letters, from their writing to their publication, trace a history of international solidarity. Their origin lies in the relationship between Ken Saro-Wiwa, the wider Ogoni movement and Majella McCarron’s solidarity work, well-documented in Helen Fallon’s piece above. The letters themselves show Saro-Wiwa in action, mobilizing international support for himself and his co-defendants.
