We request that Standard & Poor please review and reduce South Korea’s current credit rating. South Korea’s illegal dog meat industry is being exposed worldwide for its brutal and barbaric trade, damaging both their economy and social image. 

South Korea has the world’s 14th largest economy and there are a multitude of successful petitions created around the world and translated into multiple languages asking millions of people to refrain from using/purchasing/supporting some of their largest global brands including Samsung, Hyundai, Kia, LG, SK, and Daewoo as a form of protest against the horrific dog meat industry.

The Korean government has done nothing to stop this illegal practice and many politicians such as National Assemblyman Cheol-Woo Lee even supports the “interests” of the dog farmers. As a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, we know you are dedicated to their core values of Fairness, Integrity and Transparency. We respect your organization and hope that you hold those you rate to the same level of legitimacy and ethical standing.

There's no excuse for these barbaric and cruel behaviors, and the world has come together in one voice demanding change, accountability and compassion, not only from the South Korean government and high profile corporations, but from the store keepers, vendors and dog “farmers” as the fight has been brought to their very doorsteps.

We politely request that you take into consideration this very serious issue that has elicited a global call to action and has had millions of people pledge to desist in using or supporting Korean companies and products, adversely affecting their sales and image.

We truly thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.
