Send a message to your Tanzanian embassyLet’s take one more step to help the Maasai! Our petitions have rattled President Kikwete before. But this time, to make sure he doesn’t just stall, we need to show him the full force of worldwide opposition to his eviction plan.
If we all send messages to Tanzanian embassies around the world, they’ll have to forward our barrage back to Tanzania. The message to the President will be clear: carrying through on this deal could ruin Tanzania’s reputation across the globe.
Use the box on the right to send a message to the Tanzanian embassy where you live. 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.
