Watch this video from one of hundreds of despicable illegal dog slaughterhouses in South Korea: http://youtu.be/ldblUoQ2tvo

Dear prospective attendees of the 2013 9th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Seoul, South Korea:

I urge you today to please boycott the 2013 9th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Seoul, South Korea and stand against the appalling and despicable cruelty committed against the millions of innocent dogs in South Korea every year.

Harriet Beecher Stowe said, "It's a matter of taking the side of the weak against the strong, something the best people have always done."

In South Korea, 2 million dogs are tortured and eaten every year. Even though the country has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hanged, electrocuted and treated abominably by farmers and slaughters. And dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of naive customers.

These sickening practices have no place in the modern world. Other countries in Asia have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it many years ago: Taiwan in 2001, Hong Kong in 1950, Philippines in 1998, Thailand in 2000,... Why does South Korea lag behind these countries and other civilized societies?

It's the responsibility of the South Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog and cat meat industries. Now is the time to cast off the absurd myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. Now is the time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions.

And now is the time for South Korea to start taking animal protection seriously and show that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the South Korean government to better educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning animal companions, and about treating animals respectfully.

Until these things are done, South Korea's reputation in the international community will continue to suffer, despite its dazzling modernization and global thinking. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment.

There is no appropriate animal-protection legislation to prevent the animal cruelty currently taking place in South Korea. As someone who believes strongly that animals should not be treated in this way, I urge the South Korean Government to strengthen the Animal Protection Law to prevent animal cruelty and to introduce basic animal-protection regulations. It must also provide penalties for violations and ensure that mistreated animals can be legally seized from abusers and given immediate refuge. I request that the South Korean Government create an enforceable law to ban the torture, killing, sale, and consumption of dogs and cats.

Dear prospective attendees of the 2013 9th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Seoul, South Korea,
You have the power to make a difference for these poor animals who are forced to endure the most agonizing and unimaginable suffering. Would you please stand by these animals today and be their voice?

Sincerely,

The 2013 9th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in Seoul, South Korea: http://www.wcce9.org/

      Why can't they be vegetarian like so many other humans.This is horrible...dogs have been known to help the blind, autistic, hearing impaired,etc, plus dogs like many other animals give unconditional love. Koreans are one of the most horrible people on this planet, and very strange.
