Maasai Being Kicked Off Their Land in Tanzania

After 9/11, a Maasai warrior was so moved by the suffering in America, that he gave the American people a gift of 15 cows. In the Maasai culture, this is a fantastic sacrifice and a great honor. Now the Maasai are threatened with eviction from their ancestral lands by the government of Tanzania, which wants to take their land for a hunting preserve where powerful Middle Eastern princes and dictators can pay to shoot big game, such as lions and leopards. Avaaz.org is circulating a petition worldwide in opposition to this land grab. Please consider signing this petition, linked below. Thank you!

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.
