TGA – China we will continue to support your bold decision
On 29 October 2018, China’s government announced that it has legalised the domestic trade in antique tiger and rhino products and the use of tiger bone and rhino horn from captive bred animals by hospitals.
The TRUE GREEN ALLIANCE, its directors and its members, salute your fortitude and your wisdom in defying the Western-based CITES organisation that has become so corrupted by the dominance of its animal rightist NGOs in recent years.
We hope this signals the beginning of a new era of sustainable wildlife trade between Africa and China; and we hope, too, that this one action signals the destruction of CITES itself. It is long overdue.
With this one action you have made many friends in Africa, Sir, and we will continue to support your bold decision this day.
With kind regards and best wishes,
Ron Thomson. CEO – The TRUE GREEN ALLIANCE.

Drip feeding the market with legally produced material from captive bred and sustainable reserves – – where is the argument to deny this? Why has it taken so long to be enacted?
Where is the logic which would deny that few will risk death or lengthy imprisonment when the financial returns are meagre?
How difficult is to to grasp that the funds arriving from licensed sales will be free to support the anti-poaching forces?
How can this be anything but positive?
WHY HAS IT TAKEN SO LONG TO ACHIEVE THIS ONE BOLD STEP BY CHINA? BECAUSE WE ARE ALL LILY-LIVERED AND FAR TOO COMPLIANT. BECAUSE THE ANIMAL RIGHTISTS – AN IMMENSELY POWERFUL FINANCIAL FORCE – HAVE ‘CAPTURED’ CITES; AND THEY HAVE CAPTURED MOST WESTERN GOVERNMENTS TOO.
BUT THIS IS NOT JUST ABOUT STOPPING POACHING. IT IS ABOUT BEING ABLE TO FREELY AND SUSTAINABLY HARVEST OUR WILDLIFE AS A “PRODUCT OF THE LAND” FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANKIND.
“GOD BLESS CHINA”.
