Chapter Summary

Esmeralda is a Latin American country, combining urban areas, mountainous zones, rain forests and semi-arid regions. All international human right instruments ratified by the government of Esmeralda are self-executing. Finally, the Lanta communities have set up their own justice and law enforcement arrangements, with the Esmeralda national authorities stepping in only when third party interests, whether public or private, are at stake. The Numa settled on government land bordering the eastern side of the Santa Ana River, a designated &t;protected natural reserve&t;, where traditionally the whole Lanta people would sporadically venture to gather food, hunt and perform their annual pilgrimage to the holy mountain. Finally, the government argued that the alleged inconvenience caused by SAP to such a small percentage of the population is justified, given its positive outcomes for the majority of the citizenry.
