Absolutely outrageous !!!

Apparently, this sort of thing is discretely happening in Zimbabwe's NPs.

The wealthy fly into Zimbabwe for a shooting (poaching) game safari.

Many thanks to the 7 signers so far.

Over the past two weeks or so we've witnessed mankind at it's finest. We applauded David Rudisha's amazing world record and Gold medal in the 800 meters Olympic final. Can we now help his people, the Maasai, in their fight for their way of life? We are all ultimately affected by this situation. The rich and powerful against the masses.

I agree with the petition, but it should also be borne in mind that the Maasai are being sold out by the rich and powerful in their very midst - people like Ole Ntimama etc.
