02 Dec We Want Peace: STAND FOR ELEPHANTS
WE WANT PEACE’S EMMANUEL JAL JOINS FORCES WITH KENYA’S JULIANI, TANZANIA’S VANESSA MDEE AND CONGO’S SYSSI MANANGA AS THEY TAKE A PAN-AFRICAN STAND FOR THE CONTINENT’S DWINDLING ELEPHANTS
We Want Peace (WWP) is an organization globally synonymous for its creative efforts against global injustice. From worldwide conflicts to basic voting rights and now, the rapidly declining elephant population in Africa, WWP continues to shed light, make noise and bring change for a better, fairer and peaceful world.
Through the unified merging of artists, activists, political figures and leading international influencers (including Juliani, Syssi Mananga, Vanessa Mdee, Rozan Ahmed, Hon. Ambassador Bob Godec, Bougi, Wildlife Direct and more) WWP aims to highlight and STOP the horrendous slaughter of Africa’s elephants, particularly affected in the eastern and central regions of the continent, through its newest campaign “STAND FOR ELEPHANTS”.
Faced with a rapid decline of the elephant population in Africa, WWP believes that education through music, messaging, social media, peace culture and artistic activism can make a profound difference in the protection of this at-risk species.
With the worldwide release of WWP’s upcoming anthem, Tusimame, bringing together an attractive mesh of Africa’s most inspiring artists (from Tanzania, Congo-Brazzaville, Kenya and Sudan) WWP will make a momentous musical roar throughout all affected communities, inspiring further action from each and everyone of us to protect our African elephants.
The track’s recording (still in process!) took place on 22 November 2014 in Kenya’s capital of Nairobi, where the STAND FOR ELEPHANTS creative collective met with a number of fellow organisations on a similar mission to protect Africa’s glorious elephants.
Through release of Tusimame, and a hard-hitting pan-African, pan-artistic approach to advocacy, awareness and education, the STAND FOR ELEPHANTS campaign hopes to instill a sense of responsibility and respect to Africa’s eco-system of stunning nature. To trickle down a sense of urgent protection amongst young people across the continent. To demand a stop to the poaching, and demand a stop to the demand.
*Tusimame is performed in Kiswahili, Nuer, Chinese, English, French and Lingala*
