    that they (indigenous people living in the areas directly affected) are a fairly small percentage of the population of the entire country - which is not meant as a value judgement on whether oil should be extracted or not (I certainly think it should not).  I was just replying to the point made above which seemed to imply that political pressure from inside the country would prevent the oil extraction - which it has obviously not in the past.
