Boycott Italy!

Sent to several Italian Tourism agencies on 12/19/03

Dear Sirs and Madams,

The Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting is an animal protection organization that educates the public about the mismanagement of wildlife by state and federal wildlife agencies, and the destruction of wildlife and ecosystems in the name of sport hunting and game management. Our voice represents the views of over 20,000 members and supporters throughout the United States.

It has come to our attention that an Italian tourism boycott campaign called "Caccia il Cacciatore" is being conducted as a protest to the privileges which Italian hunters enjoy at the expense of animals, humans and the environment.

We intend to publicize the tourism boycott on our website and in our newsletter, so that our members and supporters, as well as those who visit our highly popular website, will be alerted to the movement to abolish the disease of hunting in Italy.

The pro-wildlife movement in the U.S is strong and growing stronger every day. We're certain that once word of the boycott becomes widely known, those who care about the lives of wild animals and the preservation of the habitat in which they live, will abide by the request of the boycott organizers and choose to visit areas other than Italy for vacation.

When Italy becomes a safe place for wildlife we will gladly reverse our course and encourage tourism to your wonderful nation. Until that time, we will cooperate with the boycott and assist the organizers in any way possible.
