My information from a local is that these are not a regional band but are imports, adding credence to my theory that they are paid provocateurs, either by US ‘environmental’ groups or by other oil interests. Frankly I think its US environmental groups who are in fact, funded by the Saudis. I have also been told that these Amer-Indians do not have permission for this protest by the local bands.
Several of the provocateurs also seem to be wearing Palestinian Kefeyas or scarves. These are as much a political statement as a flag is.
