We request that the participants in the World Tourism Conference to take place in Zimbabwe in August 2013 boycott the conference. Human rights in Zimbabwe is at an all time low, as is their protection of the environment and wildlife. The Zimbabwe government recently exported 4 young elephants to China, using inhumane methods to transport them and complete disregard for CITES laws. One of the young elephants has died and there are allegedly more young elephants waiting to be exported.
The Zimbabwe Government has a long and distasteful record with regards to it's treatment of its wildlife and its people. It is only with boycotts and sanctions from people across the world that the message of this unacceptable behaviour can be clearly communicated to them.
