“Italy: €4.5 mil worth of ivory crushed on World Wildlife Day”

 

A tonne of ivory worth around €4.5 million ($5.1 million), was crushed in Rome on Thursday, to mark World Wildlife Day as Italian authorities stamp down on illegal ivory trafficking.

The event was organised by the U.S. organisation Elephant Action League in conjunction with the Italian Ministry of Environment and the Italian Forest Police. According to the organisation, the main mission of the event was “to give a strong signal to the world: Italy will not tolerate ivory trafficking” as well as “illegal trade of ivory and other wildlife products such as rhino horn and timber.”

ROMAN EMPIRE BY ANOTHER NAME:(POEM)

GREAT BRITAIN

THE ONLY THING ABOUT HER THAT IS GREAT

IS HER NAME

YOU’RE AN ALL-STAR MVP

NEOCOLONIALISM IS YOUR GAME

YOU ARE THE ROMAN EMPIRE, JUST UNDER A MORE MODERN NAME

BUT DO NOT GET TOO EXCITED AND HOLD YOUR HEAD TOO HIGH

HOLLAND, FRANCE, USA, SPAIN, PORTUGAL, GERMANY, ITALY, TURKEY, CHINA, ETC. YOU ARE GUILTY OF DOING THE EXACT SAMETHING

LIKE A GOLD DIGGING WHORE, YOU DO NOT SEEM TO BE CAPABLE OF FEELING SHAME FOR ALL THE HORRORS YOU’VE CAUSED

NOTHING BUT HEARTBREAK , DEATH, DESTRUCTION AND PAIN IS THE REMNANTS OF YOUR REIGN!image
