Global March for Elephants, Rhinos, Lions and other Wildlife--San Antonio, Texas
Trumpet and Horn in Solidarity! Global March for Elephants, Rhinos, Lions, and Other Wildlife!
★★★ PLEASE indicate "Going" ONLY if you'll be
protesting with us IN PERSON in San Antonio, Texas! ★★★
★ PLEASE click "Maybe" if you can't make it but support us in spirit.★
Location and time: To be determined
Will you come protest with us on September 24, 2016 - on behalf of Earth's disappearing majesty? Elephants and rhinos are being poached to extinction while the lions are facing slaughter as well. Let's make our voices heard on this day to reverse the trend. This year's global stance is especially important as it coincides with the CoP17 conference in Johannesburg. We must apply public pressure!
The items on the GMFER's demands this year are the following:
Our Theme and Demands This Year:
1) ★★★ China MUST SHUT DOWN its domestic ivory trade
2) ★★★ The PALSA must be accepted and enforced by the South African Government
3) ★★★ CITES must list ALL ELEPHANTS on Appendix I, no matter where they are located geographically
4) ★★★ CITES must vote AGAINST Rhino Horn Trade in South Africa
Let's protest to demand an end to the ivory and rhino horn trade - worldwide - whether legal or illegal. The distinction makes little difference to the animals being slaughtered.
All US states must establish an outright ban of the ivory trade, China must shut down its ivory carving factories, and Vietnam must enforce a zero tolerance policy in view of the illegal trade in rhino horn that flourishes in that country.
Inspired by the People's Movement to mitigate poaching and save these iconic animals from extinction, the demonstration in San Antonio,Texas, is part of a global effort in numerous cities worldwide.
The protest will take place on Saturday, September 24, 2016.
We are looking for eager and enthusiastic individuals to take part in this peaceful demonstration and help organize. Please contact us if this sounds like you.
