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.

Multinationales et profits de la honte : l'exploitation du peuple Ouïghour

Chères Citoyennes, Citoyens Je m’appelle Laïla, je suis mariée et maman de 3 enfants, je suis fonctionnaire et j’habite Dijon.Concernée depuis toujours par la persécution des minorités dans le monde, et de la souffrance en générale, j’ai repris espoir lorsque le monde entier s’est indigné devant la mort de George Floyd....Dans les minorités qui subissent des atrocités au vu et au su de tous, il y a celle des Ouïgours en Chine. Parcourez cette liste d'entreprises* rapidement, si vous y voyez une marque que vous consommez, alors vous avez encore plus le pouvoir d'agir et d'aider une une minorité chaque jour torturé et persécuté dans la province du Xinjiang en Chine. Cette minorité , ce sont les Ouighours. Ils sont aujourd'hui détenus dans des camps d'internements ou ils subissent d’innombrables tortures et sont forcés à travailler pour notamment, de grands groupes internationaux via leurs sous-traitants en Chine. L'Institut Australien de Stratégie Politique (ASPI) vient de publier un rapport et dénonce le fait que " la Chine a transféré des dizaines de milliers de membres de la communauté musulmane Ouighour détenus dans des camps d'internement vers des usines fournissant au moins 80 des plus grandes marques mondiales"En parcourant cette liste, mon sang s’est glacé, ces marques faisaient partie de mon quotidien : mon dernier sac que j’avais acheté chez Lacoste, mon tailleur Zara ou le pyjama que j’avais sur le dos de chez H&M, pour moi s’en était trop !Je ne pouvais pas participer à une infamie pareille il fallait que j’agisse. C’est pourquoi j’ai lancé une pétition. Le député Européen Raphael Glucksmann, annonçait dans un tweet le 19 juin , avoir reçu l'engagement de la marque Adidas "à ne jamais recourir dans sa chaine de production aux travailleurs forcés Ouighours et à couper toute relation avec des fournisseurs le faisant." Lacoste a également pris des engagements en ce sens selon le député européen. QUID des 81 autres grandes marques impliquées dans la mise en esclavage d'un peuple?   C'est une excellente question, alors nous, citoyennes et citoyens, interpellons les responsables de ces grands groupes en leur disant qu'à l'heure où des voix partout dans le monde s'élèvent contre le racisme , les injustices, et pour l'égalité entre les hommes, ces multinationales ne peuvent rester indifférentes pour des questions d'argent devant cette situation. Comme Adidas et Lacoste, ils doivent s'engager et refuser l'exploitation d'un peuple à qui l'on a retiré tous ses droits et sa dignité. Faisons nous entendre, mobilisons nous en masse et soutenons cette pétition pour que les Ouighours puissent retrouver leur dignité et leur liberté mais aussi que plus jamais un peuple ne puisse être exploité et persécuté  dans le silence , nous sommes tous concernés, nous sommes tous consommateurs.C’est nous, citoyens qui pouvons réellement avoir un impact et faire bouger les lignes. * liste complète des 81 entreprises citées par l'Aspi:  Abercrombie & Fitch, Acer, Alstom, Amazon, Apple, ASUS, BAIC Motor, BMW, Bombardier, Bosch, BYD, Calvin Klein, Candy, Carter’s, Cerruti 1881, Changan Automobile, Cisco, CRRC, Dell, Electrolux, Fila, Founder Group, GAC Group (automobiles), Gap, Geely Auto, General Electric, General Motors, Google, H&M, Haier, Hart Schaffner Marx, Hisense, Hitachi, HP, HTC, Huawei, iFlyTek, Jack & Jones, Jaguar, Japan Display Inc., L.L.Bean, Land Rover, Lenovo, LG, Li-Ning, Mayor, Meizu, Mercedes-Benz, MG, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Mitsumi, Nike, Nintendo, Nokia, The North Face, Oculus, Oppo, Panasonic, Polo Ralph Lauren, Puma, Roewe, SAIC Motor, Samsung, SGMW, Sharp, Siemens, Skechers, Sony, TDK, Tommy Hilfiger, Toshiba, Tsinghua Tongfang, Uniqlo, Victoria’s Secret, Vivo, Volkswagen, Xiaomi, Zara, Zegna, ZTE.

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, Genesis, Kia, LG, POSCO, SK, FILA and all South Korean Companies, Please watch this: https://youtu.be/cCdTceduKcY 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,

KoreanDogs​.​org Team

Stop selling us inferior Exynos phones!

Outside of the US, Samsung sells phones that use their own-branded Exynos SoC chips, instead of using Qualcomm's Snapdragon. Samsung also use their own-brand camera sensors, whereas in the US, they use parts from specialists Sony. Based on experience, and studies from numerous sources online, we believe Samsung's parts to be inferior to their US counterparts. Phones with Exynos SoC chips are shown to perform slower, have less battery life, use inferior camera sensors and processing, overheat and throttle faster, amongst other issues. At the very least, we would appreciate if Samsung were transparent about their inconsistencies. Alternatively, for Samsung to ensure we weren't paying the exact same price or even higher than our US friends. We have had to accept this over many years over different iterations of the flagship phones. Every year we have hoped for Samsung to either give us the same device, or make their own parts perform on par with the competition. They have failed to deliver on these requests over and over again and the performance gap only seems to widen over time. In the age of transparency, it is time for a change and for us consumers to have the right to choose what we spend our hard earned money on. Samsung, please hear us! We love your devices and want to be treated fairly, so that we can continue to enjoy them. Please sign our petition, share it and write your message to Samsung below.

Stop false mobile game advertising

From 2018 to 2019, Many mobile phone game developers have been creating false adverts that is completely untrue to the gameplay. Nearly every game from the video game organisation Playrix is guilty of making many childish and unsatisfying adverts for their games. They include Gardenscapes, Homescapes, Fishdom and Township. Many other mobile games, such as Firecraft Studio's Matchington Mansion and other games like Words Story and Hero Wars are also guilty of false advertising. There are so many of them, it's horrendous. Back in years like 2009 and 2010, we had honest adverts where they are true and enticing to play. What do they do you ask? Well, they show a scenario where a house is in a state, where water is leaking from a sink, a kitchen stove is on fire, a bath is overflowing, etc and the player is given a choice of items to solve the problem, but rather than using their common sense and using the appropriate item, they choose very inappropriate items and destroys the house, such as adding gasoline to a fire and a hammer to the sink, which results in a "fail" sign appearing. Gardenscapes/Homescapes are also guilty of ripping off the Simpsons as they show their protagonist in rooms that appear in the programme.  In later adverts, they had been making similar adverts but with cruddy animation where their protagonists are either in a desert, a frozen wasteland or chased by bears or sharks and the player makes incompetent choices and unsatisfyingly fails. When you download the game, you will find it is nothing like the adverts, they are actually clones of Candy Crush or word spelling games. A youtube user has uploaded videos of what the advert shows and what the game is actually like. A few days later, a developer sent him a message on Instagram and threatened him with legal action unless he takes it off, as the developer claims exposing their adverts and gameplay damages their reputation. Fortunately, the youtube user refused to remove the video and continues to expose more of the adverts.  I had tried to help by writing on the Playrix games Wikipedia pages by exposing what they are guilty of doing, but they had got removed due to a lack of reliable resources I am now making this petition in order to help stop these false gameplay adverts and I need your help. Please sign and spread the petition so hopefully we can stop the false gameplay and make mobile advertising true and honest again.

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
