stop the brutal pig festival at Nem Thuong village!

    1. Petition by

      Occupy for Animals

This petition has been started by Occupy for Animals on February 3, 2013.

Every year, at a village near Hanoi, on the 6th day of the lunar new year,
which this year is February 4, 2014 a pig is brutally chopped into two so that people can smear banknotes with its blood in the belief that it would bring luck.

The festival is known as the most brutal in the country and is condemned by many, including some who called on the government to stop the festival.

For more information, please visit: http://www.occupyforanimals.org/the-brutal-festival-at-nem-thuong-village-vietnam.html

Occupy for Animals had written and forwarded the signatures collected via our first petition (http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/ban-the-brutal-festival-at-nem-thuong-village-vietnam.html) to the president of Vietnam already four times, but received no response so that we must assume that the "festival" will be celebrated again this year.

By signing this petition, the message that you can read below and which is addressed to the president of Vietnam will be sent instantly to several Vietnamese embassies.

Thank you, in advance, for your signature and for asking your friends and family to sign this petition, too.
