In August, 2009, the homes of at least 17,000 people in Port Harcourt, Nigeria were reduced to rubble by a government claiming to transform the area into a ‘garden city.’ Two years later, the site remains derelict. People across the city are coming together to transform their home into a ‘human city’ and are inviting the government to join them.
