A temporary injunction has been granted, so no monkeys will be exported before the case is heard, and the responsible parties were given just 35 days, (until the 27th of February), to respond in writing to justify their actions. Named as defendants in the case are the Prime Minister and the President of Nepal, the Monkey Farmers and the responsible Minister. The Supreme Court judges will now ask the awkward questions about how this law was conceived, who is responsible and how such a corrupt law was enacted. The Judges will then be left to decide whether monkey farming is in the Nepalese "Public Interest".
What that means in simple English is that some of the most senior judges in the Nepalese legal system will be examining the Wildlife Farming Act, asking awkward questions of those involved in the monkey farming, (including Nepal's most senior politicians), and exposing the scandal in public view for all to see! We believe that we have a very strong case to stop the monkey farming, and at this stage Nepal's Supreme Court appears to agree.
So far the actions of the democratically elected government of Nepal, whom we had hoped would stop the monkey farming, have been utterly disgraceful. Government backed militias have even viciously assaulted journalists in an 'orgy of violence' for writing 'unfavourable stories' about the government. The Supreme Court has already taken some brave decisions against the Maoist government and their abuses of power, but we still need to give them a good enough reason to stop this evil abuse of innocent monkeys.
Aside from the overwhelming evidence before the court, we still need YOU to take action for Nepal's monkeys to keep the pressure on Nepal's government and tourism industries to show the court that the loss in tourism will be greater than any gain from monkey farming!
Things are about to get rather uncomfortable for the Nepalese government, as questions are asked about private decisions that stink of corruption....So, let's make things more uncomfortable for them! Remember the government aren't obliged to defend the monkey farming in court, so let's make them think twice about offering a defence to the indefensible!!!
Now, more than ever, YOUR actions count....It's time to take to the streets again in solidarity with the Nepalese people resisting these vile exports, for the sake of the monkeys!!! We need you back at the Embassies and Consulates, we need you to put as much pressure on them as you can in the next 21 days so that we leave the Monkey Farmers defending themselves without government support!
We CANNOT and WILL NOT permit the export of those monkeys. Together we have already acheved SO much and YOUR support has been vital in the achievements of this campaign, but please don't stop now. We truly are on the border of a historic victory for the monkeys, which will resonate around the globe and set an example to other monkey exporting nations, as well as the monkey abusers themselves!
PLEASE do what you must to ensure the success of this court case. Every action, no matter how small, makes a difference and the fate of Nepal's rhesus monkey population depends on OUR actions. Use your initiative and increase the pressure on Nepal during this court case, the more pressure we can generate the more likely we are to win....It's time to finish this, NO excuses, MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!
