rallies for Cecil sept

Cecil’s Pride is proud to be part of the network of rallies that are being hosted from Minneapolis all the way to Washington DC. We are going to make a loud voice and let the world know that Trophy Hunting is no longer acceptable.

If you want to host a rally in your city, here’s a guide on how to get started by EddieY

FAQ on Rallies:

Who hosts these rallies and who pays for them?

Our rallies are grassroots organized without the support of larger non profit organizations. As much as we would like SPCA/PETA/WWF to support us, many non profits are busy with their own scheduled events and have no money to give to outside groups. That’s why we often take the first step to get the ball rolling by offering to pay for some start up costs for a rally. We know how hard it is to get a rally started and how big financing is and sometimes provide funding to get the ball rolling. There are costs including permitting costs, banner costs, promotion costs, printing, etc… The modest funding from that comes from sponsors who support us through advertising, be sure to click on an ad to thank them.

crowdsquareHow can I support these rallies?

Here are three ways:

  1. Attend these rallies& Spread the word
  2. Step up and be an organizer
  3. buy a Tshirt (proceeds go toward supporting these rallies)

Are these rallies legal?

Our rallies are legal because we all have the freedom of speech, freedom of demonstration and freedom of thought. As long as you are respectful and do not go around smashing things up or hurting anybody, we should be fine.

Why are you hosting a protest at my city? Are you going to turn into a riot and loot my city?

At Cecil’s Pride, we do not believe in violence. We call our events rallies for a reason (instead of protest) as we want to promote education, awareness and advocacy.

  1. Hi Cecil’s Pride. Here is the 3 minute version of the 45 minute video “We Stand In Silence for Cecil”, that was created from over 1,000 posts on Facebook within a 24 hour period. Even in the 45 minute version not all posts could be included in the video, as it evolved organically/virally.

    The 45 minute version as well as this was created entirely on a smartphone by a young woman in Singapore. She is featured in the beginning of the video but wants to be known only as a “Cecil supporter” who is against canned, trophy hunting and poaching.

  2. I along with most of the world was deeply sadden when we found out a popular lion was killed. When more information came out about how and who the lion was, I was appalled. To actually lure the collared lion off the protected reservation to be shot with an arrow and chased for over 40 hours before being shot to death. Thats when we found out the lions name was Cecil, with a pride and a number of young cubs that he protected.
    Then to find out the trophy hunter was from the USA and was a known poacher was who shot Cecil with an arrow and hoping to protect himself the kill shot came from the guide. They tried as hard as they could to hurry and get the hide and head before getting caught. I’m hopping that involved are arrested, charged with poaching, luring a protected lion off a reservation.
    Let us all stand together to put a stop to all poachers, trophy plus canned hunting to end. For this to happen, we must not stop, we need to stand tough and together that this is unacceptable. No matter where you live, our wildlife needs our voice to speak and protect them.
    Thank you, as we stand tall for the worlds wildlife.
