Mengapa sebaiknya tidak ikut latah VOTE KOMODO?

tl;dr New 7 Wonders itu tidak lebih dari eksploitasi nasionalisme untuk keuntungan komersial sesaat perusahaan kecil abal-abal asal Swiss

Akhirnya kejadian juga; SMS berantai imbauan Vote Komodo untuk event New 7 Wonder of Nature (N7W) nyangkut di inbox hape saya. Karena keterbatasan karakter SMS dan susye ngetik panjang-panjang di numpad, saya cuma bisa balas “Not voting, New 7 Wonder itu cuma tipu-tipu”. Sementara di FB pun ada pula ajakan Vote Komodo. Meski jumlah karakter dan pengetikan bukan lagi masalah, tapi bahan-bahan untuk counter kampanye N7W ini terserak dimana-mana. Jadi saya kumpulkan di sini saja, agar gampang dirujuk.

  • dalam kontes sebelumnya, N7W sama sekali tidak transparan soal jumlah suara masuk dan pemasukan total, padahal ngakunya lembaga nonprofit
  • banyak-banyakan kirim sms, duitnya bakal cuma masuk kantong N7W, perusahaan kecil abal-abal asal swiss. untuk konservasi komodo? pahit
    komodo di mata orang asing itu sudah sangat ajaib, 90% pengunjung pulau Komodo itu bule. orang indonesia saja yang kagak pedulian 😛

    Pakar Komodo dunia asal Indonesia Putra Sastrawan, menyayangkan sikap sejumlah pihak, seperti Pendukung Pemenangan Komodo (P2K), yang saat ini tengah gencar mengurus SMS Komodo. SMS harus distop! “SMS dengan tarif Rp 1000/SMS itu hanya mengambil keuntungan sesaat atas Komodo, tanpa mempedulikan nasib keberlangsungan hidup hewan purba Komodo itu sendiri,” kata Putra lewat rilis yang diterima detikcom, Jumat (26/8/2011).

  • heboh dengan n7w, komodo mati di tempat sendiri diacuhkan

    A female Komodo dragon has died of unknown causes at one of the country’s most notorious zoos. The eight-year-old reptile was found dead in her enclosure at Surabaya Zoo at about 11 p.m. on Sunday, zoo spokesman Anthan Warsito said.

  • kalaupun “menang”, masih harus bayar macam-macam supaya bisa “ngaku-ngaku” pemenang N7W. Pemalakan level global ini namanya! Mau jadi kayak gitu, komodo punya bangsa sendiri tapi promosinya mesti ngemis-ngemis dulu sama perusahaan asing?
    Pemalakan ini sudah terbukti pada pemenang N7W 2007

    It wasn’t long after those winners were announced that the dark side of the New Open World Corporation, who runs the competition, became apparent. I worked for a tour company at the time and we had tours to the Pyramids in Egypt, plus to all of the destinations that won titles as New 7 Wonders of the World. How exciting! Well it only took the New Open World Corporation a month or so to get their lawyers on us and demand us to stop using the ‘New 7 Wonders’ label in any way whatsoever unless we paid them for use of their trademark.

    So much for helping to boost tourism to Chichen Itza in Mexico, the Colosseum in Italy, Christ the Redeemer in Brazil, the Taj Mahal in India, the Great Wall in China, Machu Picchu in Peru and Petra in Jordan. The tourism boards and destination marketing organizations can do that themselves, I suppose. Yet strangely, after such a seemingly prestigious win in 2007, none of these tourism boards prominently mention their ‘New 7 Wonders’ win on their websites.

  • Jangankan sesudah menang, belum menang pun sudah dipalak lebih dari 2,5 juta dollar
    contoh kasus: Maldives/ Maladewa

    “With regret, we are withdrawing from this competition because of the unexpected demands for large sums of money from the New7Wonders organisers. We no longer feel that continued participation in this competition is in the economic interests of the Maldives,” said Thoyyib Mohamed, Minister of State for Tourism, Arts and Culture, and Chairman of the Maldives Marketing and PR Corporation (MMPRC).

  • UNESCO terang-terangan menyatakan tidak ada hubungan apapun dengan New 7 Wonder, sementara N7W selalu ngaku-ngaku bekerjasama dengan PBB. Mana yang kredibel? 😛

    In order to avoid any damaging confusion, UNESCO wishes to reaffirm that there is no link whatsoever between UNESCO’s World Heritage programme, which aims to protect world heritage, and the current campaign concerning “The New 7 Wonders of the World”.
    …..
    This initiative cannot, in any significant and sustainable manner, contribute to the preservation of sites elected by this public.

  • analisa bule di luar sana tentang scam N7W ini

    Here are a few troubling points about the ‘New 7 Wonders’ campaigns:

    • The New 7 Wonders homepage flaunts a ‘partnership’ with the United Nations, which has mislead some people to believe that the UNESCO World Heritage Site programme supports these competitions. That is not correct. UNESCO does not approve of, nor does it have any association with, these competitions.
    • The rankings and totals on the New 7 Wonders voting website lack any form of transparency.
    • Curiously, the application contract that many entrants signed came from a law firm in Panama, not Switzerland.
    • There is no physical location or mailing address easily available for contacting the New 7 Wonders Foundation.
    • Where the money goes is a mystery. After accounting for all costs in running the competition and organization, only 50% of surplus revenues from the millions of dollars received, goes towards the efforts of the non-profit organization.
