Newport to cut all ties with Guangxi until they STOP the Yulin Dog Festival!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!

Newport have been twinned with Guangxi Province since 1996. Twinning is the social agreement between our City and their Province it is intended to foster friendship and understanding between different cultures and between former foes as an act of peace and reconciliation, and to encourage trade and tourism.

However, Guangxi is host to the annual, barbaric Yulin Dog Meat Festival where thousands of dogs are slaughtered and eaten over the 10 days. 

There is no question that this cruel 'festival' has no place in the 21st century.

Our great city of Newport should completely cut any ties relating to this event and do everything we can to end the abduction of stray and pet dogs to be tortured, butchered, beaten, skinned alive to be eaten.
