Eva-Green-Ban-All-Elephant-Trophies-19-November-2017

 

Hello,

I have just learned that President Trump has authorized the importation of elephant trophies into the USA.

I am appalled and feel we must stop this outrage by taking a stand. When we have no more clean air, or water, or land, or wild animals, it will be too late. We must stop Trump now before he does anymore harm.

Will you join me and send this message far and wide that elephants are not ours to kill and mount as trophies. Stand up to this greedy tyrant Trump, to remind him that the true measure of a man’s greatness is not in the trophies he’s garnered but in the innocent lives he has spared.

I have spent a great deal of time in Africa and there is an expression, which roughly translated goes like this,
“UBUNTU… is the essence of being Human… Generosity that comes from knowing that you can’t exist in isolation for we are all inter-connected : WE ARE ONE. What you do affects me, you, the whole world… We are part of a greater whole and if you are oppressed, tortured, enslaved, then I am… We are…”

We must protect each other, and this planet, which is our home…

Stand up to Trump.

Stand up to all tyrants.

And send the message, “THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE – save our elephants, and save our planet.”

Thank you,
Eva Green

    I wholeheartedly agree with Eva on this subject.It is simply wrong that elephants (or any animal)are hunted for trophies in any country.If Trump allows the imports of elephant parts it will increase the pressure on these wonderful animals.
    How any country can allow the hunting of animals for trophies is beyond my comprehension, and the argument that allowing some hunting raises money for conservation of the species is hard to understand. All hunting of these precious animals should stop!
    Thank you Eva for standing up for these wonderful animals. Your understanding of the earth’s connectivity is spot on. We share such a beautiful planet and we all should do our bit to protect it.

    Beautiful message from a beautiful girl. As an American, it pains me to say that I have never been more ashamed to be a citizen under this vile, disgusting creature’s so called leadership. Hopefully this will all be over soon and we can go back to being a nation that’s a caring neighbor with liberty and justice for all.

    Hi! Eva,

    Yeah! I agree , than elephant legs , palm trees are better, as they look like elephant skinned to satisfy, wealthy enthusiasts. I guess , a must see is the Global Footprints and Impact very much and in India where I live is Bangalore!. And my neighbor city Mysore , elephants are used for Processions! I invite you see it once, if you say! I can be ur guide.

  7. Victor ( Abhijit S Pavar) Says:

    I urge all the All the animal loving enthusiasts to log on animal adopting programs and adopt elephants also. It’s an awesome feeling to know that u r caring for wild animal

    Trophy elephants should not be allowed on any occasion. It’s a sign of disrespect to nature and humanity. I’m not taking picks, and I hope they won’t see this as a case against Trump, but I agree that his policies have been catastrophic and absolutely reckless in regards to the environment! And I’m a Republican! Who voted for Trump! And lol to Victor’s message above, I know that in India they’re becoming extinct. The whole world, Europe, India, was reacting against it. It’s a relief she raised her voice about this crucial issue.

    I’m Canadian and I agree. When I was little, (I’m 16 now) my dad used to take me and my little brothers fishing and deer hunting during the winters. At that point I thought it was ok. They’re animals, and part of the planet and don’t deserve to die !! Thank you for this message !! <3 <3 <3

    Just was watching Animal Planet and saw how Large animals like Elephants and Hippos work hard to survive during droughts and then changed the channel to Another channel showing beautiful wineries , such a contrasted life for animals and Human beings. They have already many problems to deal with and I guess we should leave the animal alone at least set apart killing them ! Uff! Hope our opinions change peoples mind set. Let the no of animal lovers increase. God bless all.

    Yes this is so very true !!

  12. Maithe Says:

    Eva, you’re an angel. This message is so important, thank you for that. my total support!

  13. Berni Says:

    Sure I also find this appalling, as all of you…
    And I sincerely admire you and your work…

    But this doesn’t give me anything but doubts. On the one hand, you are taking an honorable stand with the elephants but, on the other hand, you endorse rapists and/or pedophiles by working with/for them (two, as you well may know).
    I think it’s great that you use your stage and “status” to speak out the madness, hatred and what’s really wrong with the world……but you need to be more consequent with your actions aswell…
    Am a chilean musician and, with my band (all girl rock trio, Lilits), were invited to a retail store festival, were we would be payed all the money that we needed to finish our album but we DID NOT go for it, as it represents the exact opposite of what we are ruling for! for they fire pregnant women, pay low wages with ridiculous working hours…and blah…..it was an unthinked “NO”.

    May your actions speak louder than your words…

    I trully love what you do, find you extremely talented, sensitive, emocional, beautifly shy and a real thinker…

    There are just things I don’t get.
    Don’t be so neutrally warm…..BURN!!
    Let the light in!!!

    Very inspirational your campaign!! Total support. To the girl fan above, I think you mixed. She’s an actress, and work with them because they’re brilliant artists (you can’t deny that !). Perhaps it’s time to open a bit your mind? I believe you’re this great actress, and standing for a campaign it’s not inconsequent, but the contrary. I wish the best to everybody, and that everybody see the light. Best Wishes !!
