On the 23rd of Janauary 2009 a Public Interest Litigation, (PIL), petition
against Nepal's monkey farming was filed against the monkey farming at the
Supreme Court of Nepal. We are elated to announce that the action was not only
sanctioned by the court, but it has been placed on the court's "priority list"
due to the "seriousness" of the case!
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
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
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
