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: 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: 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.

BOYCOTT For Supporting Anorexia!

There have been many failed petitions to temporarily ban anorexic social media star Eugenia Cooney from YouTube.  However, now the popular Japanese/Kawaii clothing site is supporting Eugenia Cooney. In her most recent YouTube video, uploaded on March 28th, 2018, "SPRING OUTFITS TRY ON HAUL! Kawaii Outfits!" Eugenia is modeling clothes from We know that the company is aware of this, because Eugenia mentions in the description of the video: "You guys can use the code "cooney" on any items on Sanrense to get 10%!! Thank you again so much to them for the amazing free gift, and as always I absolutely love their clothes!" Eugenia has yet to admit that she actually suffers from an eating disorder, but she has had countless viewers beg her to seek help due to her shockingly low weight. She has also had many young viewers tell her that her videos have encouraged them to stop eating to try and look like her. Eugenia knows this, and still continues to flaunt her body on social media. YouTube, Instagram, and other social media sites have ignored this issue. Maybe will be the first to drop support for Eugenia Cooney until she addresses her eating disorder and seeks treatment. I urge everybody that is reading this to BOYCOTT, and please email them and let them know that you are extremely disappointed in their decision to support an individual who clearly is suffering from anorexia. Maybe if fears they will lose business for using an anorexia sufferer as a marketing tool, they will rethink their decision. And maybe other companies will eventually follow. There is power in numbers.

Demand Gun Control: Boycott Public School Until Government Makes Change

*** The second half of this thesis, after the bolded text, is the proposed protest.*** AFTER EVERY MASS SHOOTING, THESE EVENTS OCCUR: 1. The NRA goes SILENT. The president and senators tweet "Thoughts and prayers". Nothing is fixed. This is not okay. On Valentine's Day, the 18th mass shooting occurred in the U.S.A. this year. Statistics have clearly shown that gun control laws placed in countries such as Australia and the U.K. have DRASTICALLY diminished the amount of gun related murders, including mass shootings. "My kids' right to survive a day at school outweighs your right to own any kind of gun you want" -Ben Wexler The solution is clear: If we terminate effortless access to semi-automatic weapons, it will contribute to the prevention of deranged and mentally instable people from obtaining them. You cannot murder 50 innocent mothers, fathers, and children if it is impossible to go to the store and purchase the means of doing so the same way you would buy starbucks. So if the solution is so obvious, why is nothing being done? This is because our government officials value profit and revenue over the safety of non-elites. That's right. Your child, your sibling, or your best friend, could be shot and murdered while at school and the people who have invested in weapon stocks are glancing at their bank accounts and laughing. THIS IS HOW WE WILL GET THEM TO LISTEN. We must ALL join together with bravery. If only a small percentage of people engage, this will not work. On February 21st, 2018, all students, teachers, parents, and faculty must boycott public school. Do not attend. Do not show up.  If millions of people contribute to this protest, the impacts will be too high to place consequence on every single individual.  If preceding the first day change is STILL NOT made, continue to stay home. Allow the word to spread, allow thousands and thousands of more families to take notice and refuse to take part. Crumble the sole foundation of this country. Now you might be thining, "Nobody will do this, I have to work, I have to send my kids to school." Irena Sendlerowa, survivor of the holocaust, smuggled hundreds babies out of the ghettos into safety risking her own life. Malala Yousafzai, a teenage middle eastern activist, was shot in the face by the Talbian when speaking up for girls education yet survived, opening schools across her nation. If these people can risk their lives and accomplish the impossible, you can call in sick to end the deaths of our American people. If thousands of schools across the nation are on hiatus due to a severly low attendance level, we will go down in history. Change MUST be made. The government will have no choice but to listen if the main functionality of this nation is SHUT DOWN. YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAFETY. IF YOUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM IS SOMEWHERE THAT YOU COULD ENTER AND NOT SURVIVE, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO SHELTER. REFRAIN FROM SIGNING THIS PETITION UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY.  BOYCOTT PUBLIC SCHOOLING FEBRUARY 21ST, 2018. PROTECT YOUR LIFE. DEMAND SAFETY.  SPREAD THE WORD.
