You believe that a rhino horn is not made of the same substance as your finger nails and that it is able to cure any diseases like cancer. So start chewing your finger nail if you are a Chinese – you don’t need a rhino horn!
You do to rhinos what the Chinese and their poachers do.
You are the head of the Chinese Government and refuse to get rid of your ancient beliefs and you refuse to admit those beliefs are rubbish.
You are from Vietnam and use the horn as medicine. How insane.
You are one of the following and do this!
In the Middle Eastern country of Yemen, the horn continues to be coveted by Muslim men, although imports were banned in 1982. The material, whose luster increases with age, is used for the handles of curved daggers called “jambiya,” which are presented to Yemeni boys at age 12. Jambiya are considered a sign of manhood and devotion to the Muslim religion, and are used for personal defense. Yemeni men place great value on the dagger handles, which are commonly studded with jewels. In China, the ornamental use of rhino horn dates back to at least the 7th century AD. Over the centuries, rhino horns have been carved into ceremonial cups, as well as buttons, belt buckles, hair pins, and paperweights.
You feel absolutely nothing for an animal, and allow them to suffer in any way.
You are the President of South Africa and you feel nothing and don’t want to do anything, as you have a hand in the pie with the Chinese! You’re laughing your way to the bank. Your wives are more important to you, you have recently married another one!
You, as the President, allow these poachers and you are not moving a finger to do more than what you can do. We all know you can do more! Much more…. e.g. Ban those Chinese companies, popping up – suddenly – like mushrooms all over the country! Send them all home! Tell them in their faces what you think of them… Uhm, sorry forgot what this entry is all about…so you can’t do it…. Shame on you!
The art of Dolfi Stoki – this is what the R10 note should be looking like.
God will not forgive anyone for what you do to these animals, whatever the reason behind your motive. The rhinos do not deserve to suffer like they do!
If you want to see HOW these rhinos really suffer, visit this link on youtube, warning!! It is a grossly upsetting to look at, but that is REALITY!!!
Latest statistics: 11/10/2013 – 746 rhinos poached, 16 more after 5/10/2013: 730 – Rate of poaching: 2-5 per day.
One of many posters for my class assembly that was yesterday. We had a mini-campaign about the rhinos. If you have my class blog link, you can read more and see a video clip as well. We are taking part in the travelling rhinos project.
