Bring down the excess billboards causing deforestation.

This petition had 57 supporters

It is of recent that us Kenyans learnt about the Billboard companies going on a spree to make their billboards more visible, but at the cost of our trees.

Many trees have fallen victim to the deforesting acts of such oragnistions. People have gone around cutting trees in the dead of night, this very saddening as it clearly shows that they know what they are doing is wrong. For the past few days as I drove down Limuru road, more and more trees got cut down, and the sad part of all - Prof. Wangari Maathai road is just ahead. By cutting down these trees they have brought dishonor to us all and to her memory. She (the late Prof. Wanagri Maathai) dedicated her life in protecting the forests of our country, especially the city park forest.

We cannot bring the trees back, but we can try and punish those who are responsible for this. I know that nothing may come of this petition but I am hoping that if we get enough signatures our government will listen to us by instructing people to bring down the billboards which are there in the affected areas; Mainly City Park forest and Magadi Road.

Lets stand together and protect our forests and honor the Late Wangari Maathai.

I urge not only Kenyans but other people from around the world to help sign this petition as East Africa is currently going through a drought, yet such people could not seem to care less, as they only care about the profits they are making, rather than the well being of the country and the world as a whole. 

       "It's the little things citizen do. That's what will make the difference" Prof. Wangari Maathai (1940-2011)
