Petitioning Korea Government and The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic

Stop Slaughtering Dogs Right Now if You Want PyeongChang Olympics!

[If Korea Government Don't Stop Slaughtering Dogs, We Will Never Send Our Olympic Team to PyeongChang]

This petition is actually our struggle manifesto against Korea Government neglecting to solve the severe dog meat ploblem of South Korea. In 1988, President Chun prohibited all the dogmeat restaurants in Seoul before Olympic Games. At that time, many international animal protection organizations put pressure on Korean Government. But the next President kept a loose rein on dogmeat markets and restaurants. So I staged a Boycott against 2002 FIFA Worldcup. But FIFA President Sepp Blatter was not a anti dog meat advocate. He made a statement, "we effort to solve a dogmeat issue." That's all. Now Korea Government and Korea Olympic committee are preparing for PeongChang 2018 like gangbusters. It is the last chance and adventure becauce there is no big international game for the time being in Korea. I will start Boycott PeongChang with you. It's our animal friend's duty for 2 million poor dogs are eaten yearly. Could you help me? Let's seal off the shameful and deceitful 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. 

According to the Agricultural and Livestock Department in Korea, Companion animals like cats and dogs are included in the livestock which means not all companion animals are edible but since the livestock are meat and this makes dog meat trade partially legal. (This is the double standards and very ridiculous.)
Raising dogs as a meat in the dog farm will not be illegal anymore if ALD and Korean government classify dogs as a livestock. This will be the premature stage of dog meat legalization and it is the dog farm legalization stage.
After the Pyeongchang Olympics, Korean government and officials don’t have to concern about foreign pressures any more and they plan to set up the legalization of dog meat trade in 2019.
All the animal activists and groups must stand up together and fight for shutting down dog meat trade: the fatal task for Korean animal activism and stop focusing on fostering abandoned dogs. Furthermore, we all must stop the Pyeongchang Olympics and dog meat trade.
If dog meat trade becomes legal, the picture below will not be illegal any more and Korea will be the first notorious country to legalize the dog meat trade.

1988년 전두환 전 대통령은 올림픽을 앞두고 서울의 보신탕집을 모두 영업금지했습니다. 그러나 그 다음 대통령은 개시장과 보신탕집 영업을 슬그머니 완화했고 오늘날 개고기가 만연되는 빌미를 제공했습니다. 저는 2000년부터 개고기반대운동본부를 조직해서 해외동물단체들과 함께 2002년 한일월드컵 보이콧 운동을 전개했습니다. 제프 블래터로부터 개고기문제에 노력한다는 답변만 얻고 사실상 실패했고 국민들은 2002 월드컵에 빠져 들었습니다. 2018년 평창동계올림픽이 한국에서 열립니다. 사실상 마지막 대규모 국제경기라고 할 수 있습니다. 이 기회를 잘 살려서 보이콧과 개고기금지를 연계해 어떤 가시적 성과라도 얻어내도록 노력을 해야 합니다. 우리는 모든 방법을 동원할 수밖에 없는 긴박한 상황입니다. 여러분의 많은 이해와 동참을 바랍니다.

개가 농림축산식품부에 의해 "가축"(가축에는 반려동물도 포함돼 있어 모두 식용을 의미하지 않으나 한국에서는 가축=식용의 의미로 해석된다)으로 규정됨으로써 앞으로 개를 식용의 목적으로 키우는 것은 불법이 아니다. 즉, 이것은 개고기합법화의 전 단계인 "개농장합법화"이며, 평창올림픽이 끝나... 외국의 압력을 크게 의식하지 않아도 되는 2019년에 개고기합법화의 로드맵이 설정된 것으로 보인다. 동물보호단체들은 '유기견 임보단체'에서 벗어나 한국동물보호운동의 숙명인 개고기 철폐에 나서고 평창올림픽을 반드시 저지하여 2002년처럼 개고기합법화 계획을 무산시켜야 한다. 개고기합법화가 되면 아래 그림은 불법이 아니다. 세계 최초의 개고기 법제화가 이루어진다.
