"We are all faced with history. I am a man of peace, of ideas. I am appalled by the shameful poverty of my people who live on a land that is very generous with resources. I feel anger at the devastation of this land, I am in a hurry to get my people back to their right to a dignified life, in a fair, just and democratic system". Ken Saro-Wiwa (1995)
Light forest is inspired by the figure of Ken Saro-wiwa, writer and environmentalist, killed in his battles against environmental destruction, deforestation and pollution caused by the oil multinationals in his Nigeria.
