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,

Petition to The Children's Farm at The Center

Ask Children's Farm at The Center to Become Slaughter-Free

We are asking The Children's Farm at The Center in Palos Park, IL to stop the routine slaughter of animals in their SAGE program. With this change, The Center has the ability to make our community a kinder and more peaceful place to live. While the program aims for transparency in their hands-on farming practices at their children's farm camp, there can be no real transparency in animal farming without exposing children to the violence of slaughter. This is why we are suggesting that if the program aims to truly teach children all of the intricacies of ethical and sustainable farming, that the children are taught how to grow crops or garden instead. Above all else, we want The Center to know that if they agree to make the shift towards an ethical and sustainable plant and crop-focused SAGE program, we pledge to offer our support, resources, and to volunteer our services during the transition in any way that may be need.  We are kindly asking the leaders of this organization to recognize that no animal farming can be ethical or humane since it is no longer a necessity in our modern day society, but a choice, and that evolving towards a kinder lifestyle is already in alignment with The Center's mission of peace, celebration of life, and healing. We are asking the leaders of this organization to be an example to the children showing them how to be compassionate even in times when it may not be convenient, how to use our positions of power to help others rather than to take advantage of them, to show kindness to others even when those around us are not doing the same, and to be kind and merciful simply because it is the right thing to do. The Center can do this by sparing the lives of these gentle, innocent animals because they are sentient beings who have the capacity to feel and suffer, and these animals are no different from our beloved cats and dogs. As quoted from The Children's Farm at The Center's website: "All creatures, big and small, our Lord, our God made them all."  Animal farming, even on a small, farm-to-table scale, is neither ethical nor sustainable. In addition to its innate cruelty, animal farming has been attributed to a mass global depletion of resources, being the leading cause of environmental destruction, rain forest destruction, species extinction, water depletion, ocean dead zones, habitat loss, human disease in the western world, and child starvation in the eastern world. If we are to teach our children anything that would benefit and empower them for their own future, it should be how to preserve the earth’s precious resources by implementing sustainable veganic farming practices, healthy eating habits, and ultimately kindness and reverence towards all life. If we are presented with the option to choose kindness, why wouldn't we?  Thank you so much for your time. We truly appreciate it!   Sincerely, The Chicagoland Community     Sources: https://www.milliondollarvegan.com https://www.worldanimalfoundation.org/articles/article/8949042/186425.htm http://science.time.com/2013/12/16/the-triple-whopper-environmental-impact-of-global-meat-production/ https://osher.ucsf.edu/patient-care/integrative-medicine-resources/cancer-and-nutrition/faq/animal-protein-cancer-risk https://awfw.org/wp-content/uploads/pdf/FSWFW.pdf https://globalforestatlas.yale.edu/amazon/land-use/cattle-ranching https://humanefacts.org/practices/
