WE THANK OUR COMRADES IN SERBIA FOR THIS REPORT. WE FULLY SHARE THEIR RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION.
German ‘so-called conservationist’ Udo Wedekind poses alongside the 3 ton 7 metre elephant which he chased for 30km and which he shot over 20 times before dying. The most poignant aspect of this event is that the poor animal tried to escape this filthy sociopath. What better proof do we need that human supremacism still runs rampant in this world, even victimizing animals that any decent, educated person knows damn well are on the brink of extinction?
At first the facial images of the so called ‘man’ who killed the elephant in Botswana were blanked out. Nobody was supposed to see him. But now we have his full face photo and can present it to the world. These images can now be sent to his colleagues at the ministry which he is supposedly involved with—that of ‘Animal conservation’ !

Stepping up the fight against elephant poachers No matter which angle we look at it: blocking demand for ivory at the source; destroying stockpiles (which do nothing to dampen demand); combatting the poachers in the field; public mobilization campaigns by animal defense groups and wrongheaded approaches utilized; or the grotesquely inadequate amounts dedicated to the salvation of elephants and other species across Africa, Asia and other endangered areas, the response of humanity is pitifully slow, late and much too weak to stop the extinction of these wonderful animals.
Below, a report by CBS News (3.9.14)
Bear in mind that while poaching is the chief and most pressing factor in the disappearance of those animals, many indirect factors also play a substantive role. Include here the constant wars and global dislocations and distractions caused by conflict on the political and economic fronts issuing from a world that is literally rudderless (in terms of good leadership) and dominated by corrupt elites that generate poverty everywhere they rule—which is practically every corner of the planet—a fact that allows for habitat destruction on a massive scale, and the unchecked growth in human population.
