To Sponsors of PyeongChang2018: help bring an end to the dog/cat meat trade in South Korea
To the Sponsors of PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea: please help bring an end to the dog and cat meat trades in South Korea As sponsors of these Olympic Games, we are contacting you to ask for your help: please will you consider withdrawing your sponsorship of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics? You have the power to influence the South Korean government by putting pressure on them to end the horrific cruelty that is routinely inflicted on the animals involved in all areas of the dog and cat meat trades. Did you know that, in South Korea, each year an estimated two and a half million dogs are electrocuted, hanged, or beaten to death? Were you aware that thousands of cats are slaughtered for soups and so-called “health” tonics - often by throwing the living animal straight into boiling water? These animals are deliberately killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because many South Koreans believe the insidious myth that the more an animal is made to suffer, the more delicious or efficacious their meat products will become for the consumer. The practice of eating dogs is not widely accepted in South Korea; it gained popularity after South Korea was left devastated by the effects of war. What, then, can the justification be in 2017 for continuing this aberrant practice, with South Korea having become such a prosperous nation? What excuse can the authorities give for allowing these illegal trades to continue unpoliced, unpunished, and unchallenged? We now ask that you do not endorse a nation that endorses such unspeakable cruelty and shows so little consideration for the health and happiness of its citizens. Please insist that the dog and cat meat trades are ended now - and ended permanently – or take action by withdrawing your sponsorship.Respectfully, Click for Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Action Center: http://koreandogs.org/pc2018/ Korean Olympic Committee Homepage: https://www.sports.or.kr/eng/index.do Samsung Vice Chairman & CEO: Oh-Hyun KwonSamsung Electronics Building 40th FloorPost Office Box 170, Seochodaero 74-gil 11 , Seocho-gu Seoul, Postal Code 06620South Korea 1-800-726-7864 FREEContact email: firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; SamsungHEMedia@fleishman.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; SamsungDI@allisonpr.com; firstname.lastname@example.org; email@example.com; SamsungCIT@allisonpr.com; SamsungBusiness@allisonpr.com; Courtney.Kessler@edelman.com; Homepage Global: http://www.samsung.com/function/ipredirection/ipredirectionLocalList.do Send the online message: https://contactus.samsung.com/customer/contactus/formmail/mail/MailQuestionGeneral.jsp?SITE_ID=76&PROD_ID=2088Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/samsungTwitter: https://twitter.com/samsung Click for more contact info of Samsung Companies: http://koreandogs.org/what-you-can-do/contacts-for-protest-s-korean-companies/ Samsung USHomepage - USA: http://www.samsung.com/us/Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/SamsungUSTwitter: https://twitter.com/SamsungUS The Coca-Cola Company CEO: Muhtar Kent P.O.

Samsung: Help us to end the abhorrent cruelty and suffering of cats & dogs in your country
For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/samsung/ To the Samsung Group, The dictionary definition of the word ethical shows that it is: ‘relating to morals, esp. as concerning human conduct’. Samsung states that it has “an aim to become one of the most ethical companies in the world”. We challenge this statement, as your company originates from South Korea, and therefore represents a country which endorses ‘human conduct’ that is unacceptable, immoral, and shocking: we refer to the endemic and brutal practices that are unashamedly being carried out within all parts of the dog and cat meat trade. South Korea is the only country in the world which commercially farms cats and dogs to supply the nation’s demand; and the brutalization of these helpless animals is appalling, and the suffering which they experience is immense. Within the thousands of farms, ranging in size from small, backyard enterprises to huge concerns, every year many millions of animals are bred and reared, and kept in completely inhumane and pitiful conditions: with dogs being raised in small, filthy, barren cages, with no reprieve from hunger or fear. They endure all of this before they are finally condemned to hideous deaths, by horrendous and prolonged methods of slaughter - all of which are illegal, and completely unacceptable by any human standard. We know that dedicated, caring people in South Korea have been asking their Government to ban this atrocity for many years, but the Government has yet to take a leadership role in this matter; and it is hard to believe, in the twenty-first century, that a civilized nation such as South Korea, which is one of the major economic world powers, and also boasts one of the highest educational levels in the world, is still committing this type of unnecessary and despicable cruelty. The dog meat trade is a two billion dollar industry, but South Korea could stand to lose considerably more in terms of export revenue, goodwill and its positive image within the international community if this appalling industry is not stopped; and if South Korea wants to join civilized nations around the world, and be respected as a nation of conscience, then it needs to strengthen and, importantly, enforce its animal protection laws. Many people around the world, because of their great love for dogs, will either continue, or decline, to support your corporation depending on how you now decide to act with regards to the animal rights and welfare issues in your country. Do you want your product image to suffer? Samsung is the largest electronics company in South Korea - it has the power to change this tragic and cruel situation; and we are surprised that a business with so much power, influence and money, is not already doing something about this abhorrence. It is shameful. Furthermore, your Company will be sponsoring the Rio and Pyeonchang Olympics - but what good is spending millions of dollars on promoting your company’s name through these events, when the dog meat trade in your country is doing much to damage your corporate image. Surely your corporate dollars should, in the first instance, be spent on helping end the appalling dog meat industry? That would make better economic sense. With the upcoming Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, now is the time to take action: South Korea has to permanently ban the consumption of dog and cat meat. Furthermore, as a representative company of your country, Samsung has a moral duty to be proactive in this matter: you must urge the South Korean Government to put an end to the dog and cat meat trade once and for all. We implore you, Samsung, to live up to your claim to “inspire the world” by standing up for what is right, and so “shape the future” that all South Koreans will be proud to be a part of.
Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, LG, POSCO, SK, FILA and all South Korean Companies: Adopt a company policy to ban dog and cat meat consumption!
Dear Owners of Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, LG, POSCO, SK, FILA and all South Korean Companies, Please watch this: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q Many of your employees and management are eating dogs and even cats, contributing to the uncivilized and inhumane dog and cat torture in South Korea, which you just saw in this video. When people in other parts of the world think of Korea, the first thing that comes to their mind is how Koreans horribly treat these dogs and brutally kill them to make them into soup. When this is their first thought, you have lost an opportunity to gain a customer and sell your product. Starting almost 10,000 years ago, dogs have held a special place in human society as helpers and companions in mutually beneficial relationships, and the rest of the industrialized world recognizes and protects them for this reason. To our fellow human beings, dogs symbolize love, affection, loyalty, and altruism, but in South Korea dogs are raised in cruel confinement and various methods of slaughter totally void of compassion are used on them. This is unbecoming of humankind. In the worst cases they are beaten to death slowly and deliberately in the belief that this softens the meat. Your customers do not support the cruel and barbaric treatment of these animals, and if they discover that you close your eyes to this brutality they will no longer want to spend their money on your products. Your customers will be horrified at your profound indifference and complete disregard of the unimaginable agony and suffering of these animals. Whether a dog or cat is a “farmed” animal or a beloved family pet, their savage slaughter is unacceptable to the rest of the world. You must let your company stand against these heinous crimes and this grisly illegal industry. We request that you: 1. Formally adopt and implement a policy to ban dog and cat meat consumption and terminate immediately those who violate this policy. This policy should be enforced at all your companies and their subsidiaries, as well as other companies with whom you have business transactions. 2. Adopt a policy to protect and provide a safe environment for your employees to report those who violate the dog and cat meat ban policy. 3. Provide a mandatory education to 100% of your employees about the horrors of the dog and cat meat industry and what they can do to fight this cruel industry. 4. Use your position and resources to petition your government to enact a law against the dog and cat meat consumption. 5. Donate generously to the Korean animal rights organizations, rescue groups, and the campaign against dog and cat meat consumption in South Korea. 6. Create a culture of compassion and empathy instead of apathy and indifference. By complying with these requests, you will gain the respect of your customers and the rest of the world. If you do not, we will persist with boycotts against your company that will continue to have a major economic impact on your business and brand image. Please act now and make a difference. Albert Einstein said, "The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit.” It is better late than never. We are hopeful that compassion will prevail over grievous and rampant injustice to dogs in South Korea and that you, as economic leaders of South Korea, will take steps to help bring this terrible injustice to an end! Sincerely,
Que Samsung responda como es debido por sus equipos defectuosos.
Hace un mes adquirí un celular Samsung Galaxy S5 Nuevo en las instalaciones del supermercado Éxito, cuando le instale la tarjeta de memoria noté que después de un tiempo salía un anuncio de "su tarjeta de memoria ha sido extraída inesperadamente" . Y este era constante, además dado que el teléfono es sumergible debe aparecer al encender el teléfono un aviso que indique cerrar correctamente la tapa trasera del teléfono, es este caso dicho anuncio aparece constantemente por lo cual me abstengo de sumergir el teléfono para prevenir cualquier daño; Continuando me comunique con el servicio en línea de Samsung, ellos me sugirieron cambiar de memoria, poner el celular en modo seguro para asegurarme que funcionaba correctamente, restaurar el teléfono y otra serie de procedimientos que no funcionaron así que debía dirigirme al punto donde adquirí el teléfono para mandarlo a reparar, un teléfono que no es económico, que estoy pagando nuevo y que no tiene ni 3 días de comprado, dado que era época de fiestas decidí esperar hasta enero, y todo empeoró, ahora el teléfono el cual tiene la indicación de apagar su pantalla a los 30 segundos en muchas ocasiones la deja encendida sin explicación. Presenta retrasos al intentar desbloquear el celular, y la cereza del asunto: inesperadamente el teléfono dejó de cargar, así es, fui a cargar mi celular con el respectivo cargador que trae y no funcionó, me dirigí a un centro Samsung del barrio piedra pintada, donde me indicaron que el teléfono debía ser enviado a reparación. ¿Quiere decir que adquirí un producto nuevo, pague su valor completo y tengo que recibir un artículo "remendado"? He visto ya muchos casos similares y opino que debemos unirnos y exigir que nos cambien estos teléfonos que aún están en garantía por unos nuevos o al menos la devolución de nuestro dinero, no debemos olvidar que estamos pagando el precio completo por un artículo nuevo y en perfectas condiciones, no nos están regalando nada. Unámonos para que se haga algo al respecto y respondan como es debido. Nunca sabes cuando te puedas topar con una de estas situaciones y estoy segura que pensarías en iniciar este tipo de petición. Gracias, Camille
INTRODUCE A TAMIL EELAM (LTTE) FLAG EMOJI FOR IOS AND ANDROID
I believe that there should be a Tamil Eelam flag emoji to use because the Sri Lankan flag does not represent us because us and them have different intentions, we want an identity for our self to show the world who we are. there is a large Tamil population around the world therefore this would be very helpful if we could get our national flag as an emoji. The national sri lankan flag as represented by the sickening Priyanka Fernando, who is seen slicing his fingers across his throats showing what represents his people pointing towards the sri lankan flag on his arms, therefore Sri Lankan Tamils dont deserve to be seen as a part of them. Tamil Eelam is our nation and we deserve to have our flag which shows our true colours of us. We were seen once a terrorist group which was portrayed by the media and Sri Lankan government to everyone that we had bad intentions of killing yet that does not define us at all, we are people who want our homeland back however we are victims of genocide by them and recently we was stripped of that terrorist list, therefore this flag is what we call ours and believe it should be among the hundreds of others.
Gender Discrimination in World Cup Ad by Samsung branch in Iran
We are Iranian women and men. We oppose World Cup Teaser made by SNS of Samsung's Iranian branch. In spite of the pressures of the patriarchal society, Iranian women are actively participating in social positions, alongside men. For instance, although they have limited access to stadiums and sports resources, Iranian women won Asian Futsal and Karate championship in 2018. This advertisement limits Iranian women to the roles of mothers, wives, and friends. While men are depicted in a number of social positions, there is no social identity allocated to women. When around thirty thousand comments criticised this sexist advertisement, Samsung branch in Iran has completely ignored the opposers and to add insult to injury, keeps deleting these comments. We request SamsungIR to be responsive and delete this sexist advertisement. Please find the link to this gender discriminatory ad below: https://www.instagram.com/p/BiU4KA0gIPC/
Add a breastfeeding emoji to keyboards
Take a second and look at your emoji keyboard. It provides you with an emoji for a baby and a bottle. This covers the idea of feeding a baby, but it also contributes to the denormalization of breastfeeding. I believe that it is time to start empowering and supporting women in the decisions they make as mothers instead of criticizing and shaming them. Part of that is normalizing breastfeeding and integrating it back into our everyday social lives. I know what your thinking, how can an emoji be an important step to breastfeeding becoming a cultural standard?! Well, it may seem insignificant but putting an image of breastfeeding in a place where most people will see it frequently will help make it a normal part of life. Having major companies recognize and support breastfeeding in this way is always great too! Let's allow our Mothers to feel good about the way they choose to nourish their children! The best news is, an Emoji for breastfeeding already exists!
Samsung Galaxy Note 4 - Android Nougat Official Update
Dear Samsung I am the happy owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 (N910F), which has excellent features for my professional and personal use. Unfortunately, it seems like you guys are not interested in keeping one of the biggest smartphones you've ever made, up to date (Android Nougat). After you killed Note 7, and after Note 5 didn't came to Europe, tell me what Samsung model I have, to match my current needs (which Note 4 fully satisfies)? Why do you don't keep Note 4 alive until you get a real replacement for it?It is certainly not because of the technical specifications of the device. So, please tell me and everyone as I, that want a true replacement for our Note 4, and hasn't got one: Why do you want to kill a true flagship smartphone with no replacement? Please, be professional and inteligent, and continue to help making the Note 4 a great smartphone, as it always was. After all the problems that you have caused us with Note 7 and Note 5, we deserve these updates. I hope you are sympathetic to this situation...Thank you,A proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy Note 4
STOP ADVERTISING ON TV OF GOODS MADE IN CHINA, STH KOREA, VIETNAM-DOG & CAT MASS MURDERERS
I watched two adverts on television tonight 1. the Samsung "Ostrich" advert and 2. the Kia Picanto car advert. Kia Picanto - lovely car you may think, and yes it's true, it is a lovely car - I bought one in 2012 before I knew about the horrific Dog and Cat Meat Trade and South Korea's major involvement in it. When I found out about it, the car went back to the Dealer a year later because I wanted no part in their "BLOOD MONEY" and now that I know the full extent of the horror that they impose on these poor defenceless animals, my opinions about this are even stronger! NEVER AGAIN WILL I PUT MONEY INTO THE POCKETS OF THESE VILE MURDERERS AND I IMPLORE EVERYONE ELSE TO ALSO DO THE SAME!! HOW DARE THEY ASK AND EXPECT THE REST OF THE HUMANE WORLD TO BUY THEIR "BLOOD PRODUCTS"?!! Seeing these adverts tonight is what prompted me to start this petition. I therefore urge all advertising TV Channels to STOP ADVERTISING ALL GOODS MANUFACTURED IN CHINA, SOUTH KOREA, VIETNAM, PHILIPPINES, INDONESIA AND CAMBODIA until the torture and massacres end permanently. As we all know by now, THE MOST VILE DAILY TORTURE AND MASS MURDER OF INNOCENT AND HELPLESS DOGS AND CATS is carried out in CHINA, SOUTH KOREA, VIETNAM, INDONESIA AND CAMBODIA, TOTALLING MILLIONS OF DOGS AND CATS EVERY YEAR. PHILLIPPINES IS NOW BACK ON THIS LIST BECAUSE IT WAS THOUGHT THAT IT HAD ENDED THERE, BUT IT MOST DEFINITELY HAS NOT!!!!!!!!!!! These atrocities take place in their illegal and crude slaughter-houses, on breeding farms, in markets and last but not least at their "festivals".........YULIN FESTIVAL IN CHINA starting on 21st June every year, for 10 horrific days when between 20,000 and 25,000 dogs and cats are horrifically tortured and murdered, and also every year......... BOKNAL FESTIVAL IN SOUTH KOREA which takes place for 3 horrific days every year, where again thousands of dogs and cats are hideously tortured and massacred! These "festivals" take place in the name of festivities on the predicted hottest days of the year because the consumers mistakenly believe that eating the meat will make them stronger and increase the men's virility! And the more the animals are tortured, the better the meat! The remaining daily torture and slaughter all takes place because of greed and financial gain. This includes: numerous animals packed into tiny cages unable to move and deprived of water and food for days at a time, electrocution, hanging, skinning and boiling alive, limb amputation while still alive, stabbing, grilling and torching to death, continuous severe beating and dogs very often having their eardrums punctured so that they can't bark. All this takes place in full view of other captured and terror-stricken animals who witness it all being done to the other animals and know it is going to happen to them too! AND ALL THIS IN THE NAME OF FUN, FINANCIAL GREED, OUTDATED AND MISTAKEN BELIEFS AND A STUBBORN REFUSAL TO SEE OR CARE ABOUT THE OBVIOUS EXTREME SUFFERING AND TO PUT AN END TO IT!! This vile practice is still unknown to many people and that is why we need to urgently create more awareness in order to end it. To end this heinous massacre, WE MUST ALL BOYCOTT THEIR PRODUCTS WORLDWIDE and that is why I am urgently pleading with all these channels to STOP ADVERTISING THEIR GOODS: SAMSUNG (CHINA, SOUTH KOREA AND VIETNAM), KIA (SOUTH KOREA), HYUNDAI (SOUTH KOREA), DAEWOO (SOUTH KOREA), LG (SOUTH KOREA), LENOVO (CHINA), SOME HEWLETT PACKARD (CHINA) being the major manufacturers in these countries. There is no point in their goods being advertised anyway because people worldwide HAVE ALREADY STOPPED BUYING THEIR PRODUCTS, and the more awareness that is created about these atrocities WILL RESULT IN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THESE NUMBERS WORLDWIDE, BECAUSE HUMANE PEOPLE ARE REFUSING AND WILL INCREASINGLY REFUSE TO BE PART OF THEIR HIDEOUS CRIMES! THE ULTIMATE AIM IS TO CRIPPLE THEIR FINANCIAL STATUS UNTIL THEY END THIS UNIMAGINABLE SUFFERING AND MURDER OF THESE HELPLESS DOMESTIC ANIMALS! THIS ONGOING TORTURE AND MASSACRE MUST END WITHOUT ANY FURTHER DELAY, SO PLEASE PLEASE SIGN, COMMENT AND SHARE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! Thank you so much to everyone for taking this much needed action!

ピョンチャン2018冬季Olympicスポンサー契約解除をPyeongChang 2018 Corporate Sponsors-Withdraw Your Sponsorship
ピョンチャン2018冬季Olympicスポンサー契約解除を! Coca Cola, Samsung, LG, TOYOTA, Bridgestone, Atos, Dow, GE, McDonalds, Omega, Panasonic, Procter and Gamble, Visa, Korean Air, Korea Telecom, The North Face: Withdraw your sponsorship! 2018年に韓国で開催予定の【ピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピック】のスポンサー企業に対し、韓国の犬肉猫肉産業撲滅の協力を仰ぐ請願書です。ご協力をお願いいたします。また、この請願書の下方に直接協力要請メッセージを送る情報も記載してありますのでご覧下さい。 ピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピックのスポンサー企業殿 韓国で開催のピョンチャン2018冬季オリンピックのスポンサー契約解除を要請します。 デズモンドTutu司教こう述べています「不正の状況で中立であるならば、あなたは圧制者の側を選びました。」オリンピックのスポンサーである御社には、韓国における罪も無い犬猫に対する虐待をやめるように韓国政府に影響を与える力があります。 韓国では毎年250万匹の犬が電撃死、首吊り、そして殴り殺されています。 多くの韓国人は動物がより苦しめばその肉の旨みは増し、薬効も増すという言い伝えを信じているために、彼らが思いつく限りの最悪な方法により殺されています。猫も同様に、「健康トニック」と呼ばれるスープを作るために何千匹も殺されています。生きたまま熱湯に放り込まれるのです。犬を食べる習慣は韓国全土で受け入れられている訳ではありません。韓国で終戦後に流行りだしたものです。そして欲深い料理店店主と肉取引業者そして肉屋の結託により今日まで続けられているのです。 過去10年間で、韓国の多くの人々は、犬と猫はペットであるとの概念を受け入れています。 しかし、犬肉と猫肉の法律で禁止し、違法であり不正行為であり、不潔な産業を永遠に禁止するように韓国政府を説得せねばなりません。不潔なオリに入れられている犬や猫は、仲間が拷問され殺されるのを目の前で見せつけられている光景にはぞっとします。拷問役の人が「死ぬまでに苦しめば苦しむほど味が良くなる」と言いながら、その言葉通りに、犬を生きたままバラバラに切り刻んだと実際に目で見た人が証言しています。どのような生き物に対してでもこのような行為は断固許されるべきものではありません。経済や政治の争いを乗り越え、社会の人々が精神的に結びつくことができるという事が2012年のオリンピックでわかりました。資源の乏しい小さな国でも、外されることも、取り残される事も無く、才能を発揮するチャンスがありました。 共に参加したボランティアの人々も含め皆が平等に輝くチャンスを与えられました。我々人間同士そしてこの世に生ある全ての生き物に対して理解と同情を示し、声なき者の為に立ち上がる事がどれほど重要かということを世界中の人々はすでに知っています。 正しい行いにより尊敬をされ、さらにはビジネスを構築する事にもなります。今こそ御社のようなトップクラスのブランド企業が「変化」という名の聖火を運ぶ時です。 どうか御社の顧客を尊重して下さい。 表現し難い残虐行為と抑圧を生み出している国を支持しないで下さい。これらの残虐行為を直ちに禁止にする事、それが実行されるまでスポンサー契約を解除する事を強く主張して頂きたいと思います。 敬具 -------------------------------------------------------------------- Short link for this petition: https://goo.gl/ynfpIk English Petition: https://www.change.org/p/plz-sign-coca-cola-samsung-atos-withdraw-your-sponsorship-of-pyeongchang-2018-winter-olympics-in-korea 詳細は http://koreandogs.org/ オリンピック委員会へメッセージを送るhttps://secure.registration.olympic.org/en/faq/ask-question 【参考文】以下の英文をコピーしてお使い下さい（韓国では現存する動物保護法が行使されずに未だに犬や猫を虐待、殺害しており、この行為を止めない限り2018年のピョンチャン冬季オリンピックをボイコットするという内容です。） To the International Olympic Committee: I am extremely distressed about the torture and consumption of animal companions in South Korea. Even though the government has established an Animal Protection Law, dogs are still electrocuted, hanged, and beaten to death by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being tortured and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which have no medicinal properties except in the minds of gullible customers. Until South Korea ends this appalling suffering, the country’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will face shame and embarrassment. And South Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its glittering modernization and attempts at globalized thinking.
