Tanzania: Stop the Maasai evictions

To the President of Tanzania Samia Suluhu Hassan:

As citizens from around the world, we call on you to oppose any attempt to evict Maasai from their traditional land or require them to relocate to make way for foreign hunters. We are counting on you to be a champion for your people and stop any attempt to change their land rights against their will.

Tanzania: Stop the Maasai evictions

We are Maasai elders from Northern Tanzania. Right now tens of thousands of our community could be forced off our ancestral lands to make way for elite tourism and trophy hunting.

We urgently need your support.

When we faced these threats in 2014, more than 2 million Avaaz members rallied behind our call! Together, we created such a storm that the President promised never to evict us from our lands.

But now, there’s a new head of state and plans are being revived! President Samia Suluhu Hassan may not listen to us, but we know she’ll respond to media and public pressure – to all of you! With two key high-level meetings in the region next week we only have days to deliver our global call again. Join us now – and show her the world is standing with the Maasai!
