I suspect that this is a hoax. I've never heard of a newspaper called
"The National Post". Also, links were not provided to the stories
supposedly run by CBS News and Reuters. Moreover, on-line petitions
aren't worth the time, effort and bandwidth needed to deal with them
because there's no way for those to whom the petitions are addressed to
verify that the signatures are valid. What's to stop one person from
signing time after time after time using different names and fake
Internet addresses?

You are receiving this email and Press Release because you have
previously signed the Under The Same Sun petition.
On August 6/09, this Press Release was sent to thousands of journalists
resulting in immediate interviews and citations by CBS News, Reuters and
The National Post.
In it, PETER ASH protests about the Tanzanian Court's decision to drop
on-going cases against alleged murderers of albinos. The reason cited by
the Tanzanian Courts for this action is "lack of funds"!!
For your information, Under The Same Sun is returning to Tanzania in
September. Therefore please:
1) Promote the Petition at www.underthesamesun.com as much as possible
to your friends, colleagues, relatives - anyone whom you think will sign
against these murders. The hard-copy petition will be taken again and
given to the Tanzanian Government - with all signatures since the
petition began in 2008.
2) Forward/email our Petition and Press Release to any media outlets in
your local area.
3) Contact your local government officials making them aware of this
genocide and asking them to contact/pressure the Tanzanian Government to
resume the court trials.
NB: Please note that we have modified this Press Release by removing
actual photographs of a Tanzanian albino child's mutilated body.
However, the exact Press Release sent to the media last week is
available at www.underthesamesun.com - with a distinct content warning
