Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, A Dog Eating Nation!

Please visit "Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Action Center" for more actions you can take: http://koreandogs.org/pc2018/ To the President of the International Olympic Committee, Mr. Thomas Bach, and the President of the South Korean PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, Mr. Lee Hee-Beom, We ask you to please watch this video:  http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q South Korea is the world’s 14th largest economy, yet an estimated 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are slaughtered each year in that country, and eaten as “health food”.  Forced to endure deprivation and unimaginable torment, from the moment they are born until the day they are slaughtered, dogs are imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives, with no protection from extreme elements, no access to water, no exercise, or medical care.  Their eardrums are often burst to deter barking. Finally, in broad daylight, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten or burnt to death.  It is hard to believe that a nation such as South Korea, which is one of the major economic powers and boasts one of the highest education levels in the world, is still continuing to commit this type of barbaric brutality in this day and age.  For the millions of dogs and cats that are being slaughtered each year in South Korea’s markets, slaughterhouses, restaurants, dog farms and backyards, it is a tragic reality and a nightmare from which they can’t escape; but it is unacceptable and shameful: South Korea is happy to take the benefits of an advanced society, but not the full responsibility. This is a profit-driven, tax free, unregulated industry that aggressively promotes the myth that eating dog meat (especially the dog’s penis) enhances male virility and provides men with energy.  South Koreans genuinely believe that the more the dog is made to suffer, the more it will enrich the quality of the meat and increase the health benefits to the consumer.  Many dogs are sadistically made to experience extreme fear and suffering prior to death.  Cats are frequently boiled alive to make tonics believed to treat rheumatism.  The demand is so high in South Korea that 20% of the dog meat is now imported from China. If South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience, then South Koreans need to strengthen their animal protection laws and permanently ban dog and cat meat consumption.  This has continued for far too long, and it is now time for the South Korean Government to take moral leadership for its citizens and take a stand against this appalling practice.  Not only would this save the South Korean animals from unimaginable suffering, but it will be in South Korea’s economic interest because people across the world will keep condemning South Korea’s cruelty. Mahatma Gandhi said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”  It is time, therefore, for South Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and prove that South Korea really does have a compassionate and ethical society.  This means it is time for the South Korean Government to start better educating the public about the importance of spaying and neutering, about not abandoning pets, and about treating animals in a humane and decent manner.  And, the first step must be to finally end this horrendous cruelty of dog and cat meat consumption. If South Korea does not take the above action immediately, I will boycott the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, and all South Korean businesses and tourism.  The favor of your reply is requested. We thank you, in anticipation, for taking swift action! ------------------------------------ I also urge you to write to the Olympic Committee that you will boycott PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics.

Petition to Worcester-area Consumers

Boycott Turtleboy Sports Sponsors

Turtleboy Sports Hates Worcester. Turtleboy Sports Hates our Communities. Turtleboy Sports Hates our Schools. Turtleboy Sports Hates our Children. The blog has torn our city down for too long, so now it’s time to fight back by taking on the businesses that raise Turtleboy Sports up. Join us. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We know what you’re thinking— why pick on the businesses when the blog is the problem? Well, they make the blog profitable for the hate monger behind it (you know, the guy who operates it, but then sold it, but then just sells ads, but also uses his voice on the radio and shows up to public meetings when he feels he’s being unjustly criticized . . . wait, where were we? Oh, right). Turtleboy Sports started out terrorizing Worcester residents and gradually moved to expand their reach to those living in other communities. The anonymous authors harass and slander people with lies and lewd behavior, and ridicule anyone who speaks out against their brand of “news”. The blog has cheerfully attacked anyone who crosses their path, stooping as low as to attack children for amusement and targeting local students with disgusting sexual harassment, all while the writers hide behind their anonymity in the comfort of their homes. We know that there are always going to be people out there looking to read their “funny” made up words and stomp on people when they are down. We can’t change the world, we get that. We also know that many local businesses have withdrawn their financial support of Turtleboy Sports’ hate and lies, though. We can only conclude that the blog’s remaining sponsors are fine with the denigration and harassment spewed by the anonymous writers. Our purpose is to inform Worcester, and communities throughout the region, of exactly what these businesses are funding and to make a simple statement: if these businesses are financially supporting a blog that denigrates the people of this city, we can no longer financially support them.The Pike 100FM (WWFX-FM)Smitty’s TavernMaria’s Fine JewelryBennie’s CafeThe Gun ParlorAttorney Michael T. Gaffney We are asking you to NOT patronize these businesses. We are asking you to tell your friends to NOT visit these establishments. We are NOT asking you to harass the owners with bad reviews if you haven’t had bad experiences with them in the past. If you feel compelled to have a respectful conversation with the owners, explain why you feel their monetary involvement prevents you from spending your hard-earned money there. With a wealth of small businesses to support in Worcester and the surrounding communities, there are better places for you to spend your money. Got questions? Email us at info@turtleboycott.com.

Petition to Terry J. Lundgren, Chairman & CEO, Macy's Inc., Macy's Corporate Communications

MACY’S: Label Leather/Faux-Leather & Fur/Faux-Fur Products as “Not from Dog or Cat"

“Macy’s 2016 Social Responsibility Report” and the Macy’s Inc. website "Social Responsibility" section, at the time of creation of this petition, state nothing about animal welfare!  In this day and age of rapidly growing, global consumer social consciousness, this is unacceptable! As a humane consumer and customer or potential customer of Macy's, I sign this petition as a pledge to boycott either 1) all products sold by Macy's or minimally 2) all leather, faux-leather, fur and faux-fur products sold by Macy's that do not clearly indicate on external product labeling, for products sold both online and in-store, that all materials forming the product ARE NOT SOURCED FROM DOG OR CAT and that the product is thus "DOG AND CAT FREE".  The reason for my boycott is that animals processed through "the dog and cat meat trade" SUFFER EXTREME CRUELTY AND ABUSE, with their skin and fur by-products often sold to manufacturers and passed off to unknowing customers, originating from dog and cat meat-eating counties, such as China, Korea and Vietnam. This trade employs EXTREME ANIMAL CRUELTY, and often involves stolen family pets.  As standard practice, slaughterhouse workers use purposeful torture of dogs and cats, who are highly sentient beings, to tenderize the meat or give it falsely perceived medicinal qualities, selling the skin and fur as by-products of torture.  Dogs and cats are typically abused and tortured, LEGALLY, in the following ways, often through, prolonged or repeat torture sessions consisting of the following ways: Bound alive, with limbs tied together and mouths taped, wired or tied shut to make the torture easy. Blow-torched alive.  Blow-torching does not often kill the dog or cat quickly, and blow-torch sessions can take place over several hours or even days, leaving the animal suffering accumulated burns. Boiled alive.  In a metal pot or cauldron, it can take up to 30 minutes for the dog or cat to die through boiling.  Sometimes animals are boiled, kept alive, beaten, and then boiled alive again. Burned alive.  In fire pits and open ovens, live dogs and cats are speared, held by instruments, such as metal prongs and sticks, and jammed into open fire, where it may take 30 minutes or longer to die. Hung and beaten, or nailed to walls and posts and beaten. Stabbing and sensory organ/genital mutilation.  Dogs and cats are repeatedly stabbed and cut, such as eyes gouged out or genitals cut to cause extreme suffering. Therefore, I sign this petition as a pledge to boycott either 1) all products sold by Macy's or minimally, 2) all leather, faux-leather, fur and faux-fur products sold by Macy's that do not clearly indicate on external product labeling, for products sold both online and in-store, that all materials forming the product ARE NOT SOURCED FROM DOG OR CAT and that the product is "DOG AND CAT FREE".  ~ By Jenny Wilkins, Boycott the Dog & Cat Meat Trade Worldwide
