Frustrated with the abuse they face everyday, people in the region have no choice but to protest. Multinational oil companies (MNCs) and the Nigerian government respond to these protests by public executions, restrictions placed on the rights of the people and various other abuses such as rape, and the killing of innocent civilians. These various forms of human rights violations are performed with the help of Nigerian security forces hired by multinational oil companies. Despite all the countless violations and abuses by the oil companies, the region 's inhabitants are still yet to receive a proper procedure for pressing charges and seeking justice. When the Nigerian government does come up with a plan to combat these issues, the plan usually lacks a proper procedure and cannot be maintained in the long run.

This punishment of the whole population showed that Sherman had no interest in a united country. He was more interested in disciplining the seceding states. In “Sherman’s March to the Sea,” F.O.C. Darley depicts a house burning, a child weeping at the side of his mother, and an old man struggling to go on all while Sherman’s men march toward the fleeing Confederates. Through the destruction of civilian towns and plantations, Sherman damaged countless lives mentally and economically.
He was a Christian, but broke many laws of the Christian way. He lied to the king and queen so he could get more help and time. He was ruthless and cruel, all which Christianity frowns upon. Columbus ran his sword through Indians who wouldn’t trade gold with him and took many natives prisoners to find gold. In 1495, he created a slave raid and rounded up fifteen hundred Arawak men, women, and children to force them to work or to sell them.
He ruthlessly drove his competitors out of business to gain all control. Rockefeller knew that if he built a substantial pipeline to transfer his oil, he would be able to cut the railroad industry out for good. Soon, that’s exactly what Rockefeller had accomplished. On the other hand, you could contend my point by arguing that Rockefeller’s invention provided jobs to people, as it grew. However, by him creating that pipeline, it caused the railroad companies to crash the stock market and several people lost their jobs because of it, known as the Panic of 1873.
This work operates as a protest, not solely against the abuse and avarice of the North American companies in Latin America, but also against the consumeristic advertising utilized by companies. The writer commences his criticism by mentioning icons of consumerism that took over the planet, such as “Coca Cola Inc., Anaconda, […] and other entities” (Schmitt 179). Such companies are depictions of the American industry, which “[reserves] the juiciest for itself” (Schmitt 179) and benefits from the resources Latin American countries offer. The nations filled with “greatness, liberty and flags” (Schmitt 179) become submissive to external dominance and, once powerhouses sucks out their richest supplies, they are relinquished and forgotten, for they deliver no more efficient use. Neruda undertakes to bring attentiveness to these discriminations brought upon local Central and South American populations, who were dominated by dictators and American companies.
The Arabic government exhibits no generosity to its people by seizing many of their belongings. As a result, those who are suppressed under the power of the corruption of society become hostile as the incivility spreads to even the most generous of people. Darwish argues, “I shall eat the flesh of my usurper/ Beware, beware of my hunger/ And of my anger”(61-63). Over time, the oppressive rule towards the affable person causes him to become contentious; consequently, society as a whole loses its hospitality, resulting in a rage among all people. Through the various situations Darwish encounters, he manages to display the moral decay of society by explaining not only the vicious lifestyle of people but also their stereotypical
How does the history of Haiti help explain modern-day issues there? Haitians are constantly living in fear whether it’s a natural disaster or leaders who rule in fear and tortured and killed approximately 30,000 people due to political reasoning. Haiti has a long dark history which constantly affects them in their daily lives now. Not only does Haiti have a dark past but they are the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere today which affects many others.

These events made the Blacks realize we are hurting our comment and need to stop.
The discovery of huge amount of oil in Texas affected the economy as well as many aspects of daily life. For the Texans, the 20th century began on Jan. 10, 1901 when the Lucas No. 1 well blew in at thte Spindletop near Beaumont, a hill which was formed by a giant underground dome of salt in southeastern Texas. With that dramatic event, Texas ' economy was changed from its rural, agricultural roots into the petroleum and industrial age. The discovery at the Spindletop fueled a revolution in transportation and transformed Texas into an industrial giant like never before.
People got beaten up to a pulp and sometimes had to go to the hospital. It was said that the Navy would beat Chicanos up and strip the naked then burn their clothes in the middle of street which too me is going to an extreme. The Zoot Suit was more of iconic fashion trend for Chicanos during 1943. Due to the Zoot Suit riots the Zoot Suit was pulled off of store shelves and were made illegal to wear in Los Angeles. In my opinion, if you have to ban a certain type of clothing because people are committing crimes with it then obviously your government isn’t doing something right and needs to be replaced immediately.
These agents harassed and shot at workers, while bosses (especially in the non-unionized areas) fired anyone who tried to join the union. In 1920, union members set up camps for homeless miners outside of the Stone Mountain Coal Company mines, but two detectives were sent out to evict the workers at gunpoint. In the event later known as the Matewan Massacre, a gunfight erupted by the policeman Sid Hatfield (who was sympathetic to the miners’ cause) and the detectives who had illegally evicted the homeless workers. This inspired violent revolts of the mine workers who were fighting to join the UMWA, and in Logan and Mingo counties, any worker caught supporting the union was arrested. Even more miners rebelled when Sid Hatfield was murdered in a surprise attack by detectives outside of a courthouse (Sid was there to face charges for sabotaging a coal mine).
