A man lifts a roasted goat on his shoulder in an abattoir in Swali, in Yenagoa, the capital city of Nigeria's oil state of Bayelsa in the Delta region November 30, 2012. Despite billions of dollars worth of oil flowing out of Nigeria South East, life for the majority of Niger Delta's inhabitants remains unchanged. Most people live in modest iron-roofed shacks, and rely on farming or fishing, their only interaction with the oil industry being when they step over pipelines in the swamps - or when a spill blights their landscape.
