Increased attention in the media
Read the story "One Reason Gas Is Emptying Your Wallet: Nigeria", from this past Sunday's New York Times. Although the story doesn't pierce beyond the surface issues, it is a reasonably good sign that people are beginning to pay attention to what is happening in the Delta. If we wish to see justice there, it will be up to activists and others to begin framing the issues in such a way as to spur international support and continue weakening the legitimacy of the regime.
