40,000 people forced out of their homeland


The Tanzanian government is planning to force 40,000 Masai people off their land so they can sell it to a commercial hunting and safari company. The Masai cherish this land, which was inherited from their ancestors. They depend on cattle that graze in the area. Thousands of people shouldn’t be forced from their homeland in order to develop hunting grounds.

Tanzania: Don’t force 40,000 people to leave their homeland!
Sign Chris’s Petition

Dear friend,

The Tanzanian government is planning to force 40,000 Masai people off their land so they can sell it to a commercial hunting and safari company. The Masai cherish this land, which was inherited from their ancestors. They depend on cattle that graze in the area.

Thousands of people shouldn’t be forced from their homeland in order to develop hunting grounds. Sign the Care2 petition urging the Tanzanian government to call off the sale.

The Masai people have spent their entire lives in this area bordering the Serengeti national park. Their parents and grandparents are buried there. It is cruel for the government to force them to move, especially considering the reason.

The hunting and safari company that is buying the land plans to turn it into a reserve where people can hunt wild animals, like lions and leopards. Animals could also be captured and removed from their habitat to become pets. This land sale not only hurts the Masai people, but also the wild animals that live on their land.

Just last year, the government promised not to sell this land. Now they are going back on their word and ordering the Masai people to leave by the end of the year. We have to act now – please sign the petition today telling the Tanzanian government to abandon their plans to sell this important land.

Thank you,                      Cate H.
