The Samesun Nation Manifesto

We are the young, who have inherited a planet that is in dire need of repair and attention.

Previous generations have been more focused on exploitation, greed, and short term gain then the long term viability of the earth, and now we are expected to pay the price.

And we are not happy about it.

We do not believe that the planet was intended to be mined, stripped, and polluted.

And we do not believe that the human race has the unilateral right to decide which species deserve to live and which we can eradicate at will.

We believe elephant tusks belong on elephants, not on pianos.

We believe rhino horns belong on rhinos, not on the mantles of the rich or ignorant.

We believe that killing thousands of whales each year in the name of ‘scientific research’ is disgusting and wrong.

We believe that shark fins belong on sharks, not in soup.

We condemn trading blood for oil, blood for religion, blood for borders.

We believe in peace.

We are not asking for our planet back, we are taking it back.

And finally, we believe that the greatest path towards understanding different people, places, and cultures comes from TRAVELING, and so that is what we yearn to do.

We are one people, under one sun.

We are SameSun Nation.
