President Kikwete may not care about us, but he’s shown he’ll respond to global pressure -- to all of you! Use the box on the right to send a message to the Tanzanian embassy where you live. If you all send messages, Kikwete will hear a barrage of reports that his land grab is reverberating around the world.
A personal message is best, but here are some points you can use to get started:
- The government’s recently announced plan to evict the Maasai from their land in order to make way for royal hunters is an outrage.
- The Maasai's unique culture and way of life must be protected. They help to define Tanzania around the world, attracting tourism, respect and goodwill.
- I call on the Tanzanian government and President Kikwete to stop the evictions and protect Maasai lands.
- I request that you relay my message to President Kikwete.
