Boycott South Africa until it stops trophy hunters

This petition had 719 supporters

Increasingly in America blacks are finding it difficult to lend support to an African nation which looks backwards rather than forward in curing your ills. While we understand that your economy is somewhat dependent on tourism we feel it should be a humane and planet friendly brand.

In your rush to gain independence you negotiated away your opportunity to nationalize diamonds and other resources which rightfully were yours to appease Ronald Reagan. Had you fought for full autonomy today you wouldn't be looking to stay afloat on the backs of animals which are both indigenous, as you are, and necessary for all of us to live.

I'm sure no one would object to a canned hunt of animals suffering from injuries which can't be fixed or illnesses which can't be cured, except those who think it is fair to take a gun into a knife fight. However to go in search of vibrant life for the pleasure of the kill is barbaric, and dates back to a colonial practice which has no place in modern Africa. 

Seek more business partnerships with your cousins here we want to see you thrive and we want to be a part of it. Tell me Dr. Bomo Molewa of all the Americans who come to hunt what percentage are your American cousins? Why engage by majority, Americans who only want to destroy Africa when we can build something so much greater?
