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.

Petition to Mayor Marc Francina of Evian, France

Tell Friendship City, Muju-gun, Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture/Eating of Dogs.

For more actions you can take please visit: Mayor Marc Francina of Evian, France: Tell Friendship City, Muju-gun, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats. Monsieur Marc Francina, maire d’Evian : Dites à Muju-Gun, Corée du sud, que nous sommes opposés à la torture et à la consommation  de chiens et de chats ! (Scroll down for the French translation) Evian has become Friendship City with Muju-gun, South Korea.  This relationship was no doubt formed in the spirit of friendship and for your mutual benefit, for business links and trade etc.  And, while Evian would have expected to learn about the differences in cultural practices of the Muju-gun citizens, we feel certain that your city would have hesitated to form such a Friendship City relationship had your city known about the aberrant and cruel practices routinely carried out in the dog and cat meat trades in Muju-gun and all over South Korea.  Lucrative, but illegal trades which carry on unchallenged: with no enforcement of the laws and no punishment for those violating them. South Korea is the home to global companies, such as Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK and POSCO, which is why it is so shocking that an estimated 2.5 million dogs are tortured and slaughtered every year within South Korea, because of the greed of dog eaters and the dog meat industry; while the majority of those Koreans, who don’t actually participate in this offensive trade, show a profound indifference by doing nothing at all to stop it. We know how loyal and faithful our dogs across the world are; and we all ask a lot of them - they serve us in innumerable ways: farm work, war work, police and guard duties, search and rescue, help for the disabled, guiding and guardianship, and, of course, as our loving and trusting companions. Dogs were first domesticated many thousands of years ago, and so much do they want to be part of our ‘human’ family that they have learned to understand our gestures and our language - the language of another species, which shows remarkable willingness and intelligence. In Muju-gun there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty. Please watch this undercover video by animal rights activists in South Korea: There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for human consumption yet these laws are routinely and blatantly ignored. We believe that there must surely be some social responsibility for the representatives of one city to take a stand against any wrongdoing being sanctioned or ignored by their Friendship City.  As such, we ask you to please urge Muju-gun Mayor Jeong-Su Hwang to take action, and to state that Evian and its citizens demand that Muju-gun issue an official document mandating that the following existing Korean laws be enforced by its government officials, police and judges: Unauthorized processing of food waste fed to dogs in the meat trade is a violation of Wastes Control Act, Article 15-2, Article 25, Section 3.  Suppliers of food waste and transporters of food waste to dog meat farms are violating this regulation. Food waste fed to dogs in the dog meat trade is a violation of Control of Livestock and Fish Feed Act, Article 14, Section 1 & 2.  Unauthorized collection of food waste and the act of feeding it to dogs in the meat trade is in violation of this regulation. Excrement and resulting environmental damage produced as a by-product of the illegal dog meat farm is a violation of Act on the Management and Use of Livestock Excreta Article 11.  The excrement produced at dog meat farms causes environmental damage to the immediate and surrounding area. The act of slaughtering of dogs for human consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act Article 8, Section 1, Clause 4. The act of slaughtering of a dog, without a justifiable ground – such as out of necessity for veterinary treatment, or in circumstances of immediate threat, harm or damage to human life or property, is a violation. The slaughter of dogs by electrocution is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 8, Section 1, Clause 1.  Inflicting injury or death to any animal by the following means: battery by tools, exposure to drugs, exposure to extreme heat or fire, electrocution and drowning is subject to legal punishment. Therefore, the routine slaughter of dogs by butchers and farmers by these methods is in violation of the Act. Further, electrocution as a method of slaughter is internationally recognized as an inherently cruel method of slaughter and banned globally. Slaughter of dogs from unauthorized slaughterhouse is a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, Article 7 Section 1.  The Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, states that dogs are officially recognized and classified as “animals” that are “prohibited from being slaughtered and distributed as food for human consumption”. Therefore, those vendors operating dog slaughterhouses are operating outside of the parameters of the law and in violation of the law. Slaughter of dogs for his/her own consumption is a violation of Animal Protection Act, Article 10.  The intent of the Act is to ensure that no animal is slaughtered in a cruel or revolting manner, and shall be free from unnecessary pain, fear, or stress during the process of slaughter. Therefore, only humane way of slaughtering dogs would be by euthanasia (lethal injection). All currently practiced methods of slaughter by butchers, farmers and traders excludes euthanasia as a method of slaughter, therefore they are all in breach of this Act.  This is also a violation of Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act Article 7 Section 1 Clause 2.  According to the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act, slaughter of animals for his/her own consumption is allowed only for the livestock animals that are publically announced as classification of livestock in the Livestock Products Sanitary Control Act and dogs are not classified here. Display and sale of dog carcass in traditional outdoor markets is a violation of Food Sanitation Act, Article 4, 5.  Violation of laws banning sale of harmful food due to the contamination from unsanitary and illegal slaughter of the animal and display of the dog carcass. For example, dog carcass are routinely contaminated by microorganisms that cause human diseases and food poisoning which can lead to serious and life threatening health complications.  There are also strict laws which ban the sale of meat from sick animals, due to the fact that there is no quality control or formal monitoring of slaughter practices in the dog meat trade it is very likely that violation of these laws is happening routinely. Dog meat restaurants’ sale of dog meat soup made with dog carcass from an unknown source is a violation of Food Sanitation Act Article 44 Section 1 Clause 1. Uninspected livestock products must not be transported, stored, displayed, sold or used for manufacturing or processing of food for human consumption. Please refer to the legal information regarding the dog meat consumption in South Korea published by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates): We believe these demands are in line with the spirit and goals of Friendship cities to establish friendly communications in the areas of tourism, commerce, cultural exchange and public health. Your action is important; it can and will help save the lives and reduce the suffering of animals tragically caught up in the South Korean dog and cat meat trades.  Many Mayors from around the world have supported our campaigns by reaching out to their various counterparts within South Korea.  Take Bucheon, for example, such action really made a difference: they are now working hard towards becoming the first ‘dog meat free’ city in South Korea, by closing down illegal dog farms and slaughterhouses, and mandating that restaurants stop selling dog meat dishes!  Inspiring news, resulting from direct action by inspiring people, like yourselves. International coverage of the brutal dog and cat meat trade in South Korea has stained Muju-gun, South Korea’s image.  Don’t let it also tarnish your City’s Friendship city relationship. The time to end this tragedy is now.  The favor of your reply is requested. [French] Monsieur Marc Francina, maire d’Evian : Dites à Muju-Gun, Corée du sud, que nous sommes opposés à la torture et à la consommation  de chiens et de chats !  La ville d’Evian entretient des liens d’amitié avec Muju-Gun, Corée du Sud, depuis 2010. Cette relation s’est sans nul doute forgée dans un esprit de fraternité, ou pour favoriser les échanges commerciaux. Vous espériez naturellement apprendre davantage au sujet de la culture sud coréenne. Pourtant, nous sommes certains que vous n’auriez jamais lié une telle relation si vous aviez eu connaissance du commerce barbare de viande de chats et de chiens pratiqué à Muju-gun, et dans toute la Corée du Sud ! Ce commerce illégal est lucratif, et perdure… la loi n’étant pas appliquée, et les contrevenants n’étant jamais inquiétés…  La Corée du Sud est le pays de grandes compagnies internationales, tells que Hyundai, Kia, Samsung, LG, Daewoo, SK ou POSCO.  Il est d’autant plus aberrant d‘apprendre que chaque année 2,5 millions de chiens sont torturés et massacrés en Corée du Sud. Ceux qui ne consomment pas la viande de chat ni de chien sont malheureusement totalement indifférents, et ne font rien pour changer les choses. Vous connaissez la loyauté des animaux de compagnie… Ils comptent beaucoup pour nous, et les chiens accomplissent des taches précieuses: ils travaillent à la ferme, assistent la police, recherchent les disparus, guident les aveugles: Ce sont nos gardiens, nos compagnons… A Muju-gun il y a un nombre incalculable d’élevages de chiens, d’abattoirs, de marchés et de restaurants où les animaux sont torturés durant toute leur misérable existence. Ils finissent massacrés de la façon la plus inhumaine, par électrocution, pendus ou battus, puis jetés encore vivants dans l’eau bouillante. Ils sont tués sous les yeux de leurs compagnons terrorisés, entassés dans des cages immondes. Cela se déroule sur la place publique, au vu de tous ! Les animaux abandonnés, ou volés à leurs maîtres subissent exactement le même sort… Regardez cette video réalisée en camera cachée par de courageux activistes en Corée du Sud: Il existe pourtant des lois bannissant la vente de chats et de chiens pour l’alimentation humaine, mais elles sont outrageusement ignorées jour après jour. Prenez position contre ces agissement criminels ! Une Région ne peut demeurer insensible  aux “traditions” barbares pratiquées dans sa Région jumelle: S’il vous plait, écrivez, demandez au représentant de Muju-gun de faire appliquer la loi par les forces de l’ordre, et le système judiciaire ! Le commerce illégal de déchets alimentaires à destination des élevages de chiens est une violation de la LOI SUR LE CONTROLE DES DECHETS Article 15-2, Article 25, Section 3. Les fournisseurs de déchets alimentaires et les transporteurs de déchets alimentaires aux élevages de “chiens à viande” violent cette réglementation. L’alimentation à base de déchets ménagers dans les élevages de chiens destines à l’alimentation humaine est une violation de la LOI SUR LE CONTROLE DE LA NOURRITURE DU BETAIL ET DES POISSONS Article 14, Section 1 et 2. La collecte de déchets alimentaires pour l’alimentation les chiens destinés à la consommation humaine viole cette réglementation. La production d’excréments et la pollution de l’environnement du fait des élevages de chiens destinés à la consommation humaine violent la LOI SUR LE TRAITEMENT ET L’UTILISATION DES EXCREMENTS DE BETAIL Article 11. Les excréments produits par les élevages de chiens causent des dégâts environnementaux. Abattre des chiens pour la consommation humaine viole la LOI SUR LA PROTECTION ANIMALE Article 8, Section 1, Clause 4. Abattre un chien sans motif justifiable – comme en l’absence de traitement vétérinaire, ou danger immédiat pour la vie ou la propriété humaines – est une violation de la LOI SUR LA PROTECTION ANIMALE Article 46. L’abattage de chiens par électrocution viole la LOI SUR LA PROTECTION ANIMALE Article 8, Section 1, Clause 1. Battre à mort un animal, le tuer par exposition à une chaleur extrême ou par le feu, électrocution ou noyade, exposent à des sanctions. L’abattage de chiens par les bouchers ou fermiers qui utilisent ces méthodes est une violation de la loi. En outre, l’électrocution comme méthode d’abattage est internationalement reconnue comme étant fondamentalement cruelle et est totalement interdite par la LOI SUR LA PROTECTION ANIMALE Article 46. L’abattage de chiens dans les boucheries non autorisées viole la LOI SUR LE CONTROLE SANITAIRE DES PRODUITS DE L’ELEVAGE Article 7, Section 1. La loi sur le Contrôle Sanitaire des produits de l’élevage stipule que les chiens sont officiellement reconnus et classifiés comme “animaux de compagnie”, qu’il est “interdit de les  abattre et de distribuer leur viande pour l’alimentation humaine”. Par conséquent, les vendeurs qui utilisent des boucheries canines violent la loi.L’abattage de chiens pour sa consommation personnelle viole la LOI SUR LA PROTECTION ANIMALE Article 10 Le but de cette loi est de s’assurer qu’aucun animal ne soit abattu de facon cruelle ou barbare, et qu’il ne souffre pas pendant l’abattage,  de douleur, peur ou stress inutiles. Par conséquent, la seule facon de tuer un chien serait par euthanasie (injection mortelle). Toutes les méthodes d’abattage pratiquées par les bouchers, les paysans ou les commerçants excluent l’euthanasie comme méthode d’abattage. Elles violent donc toutes cette loi. [1]Ce délit est également proscrit par la loi du controle sanitaire du bétail, article 7, section 1 clause 2. L’abattage d’animaux pour sa consommation personnelle est autorisée pour le bétail, officiellement reconnu comme tel. Les chiens n’appartiennent pas à cette catégorie. [2] L’exposition et la vente de carcasses de chiens dans les marches traditionnels viole la LOI SUR L’HYGIENE ALIMENTAIRE Article 4, 5. Les lois interdisent la vente d’aliments contaminés lors d’abattage illégal et sans contrôle sanitaire. Les carcasses de chien exposées sont fréquemment contaminées par des micro-organismes qui causent des maladies et des intoxications alimentaires, qui peuvent conduire à des complications de santé sérieuses, voire mortelles. Il existe aussi des lois strictes interdisant la vente de viande provenant d’animaux malades. Comme il n’y a pas de contrôle de la qualité, ni surveillance officielle des pratiques d’abattage dans le commerce de la viande de chien, il est très probable que ces violations soient routinières. Les restaurants qui vendent de la soupe de chien réalisée avec des carcasses de provenance inconnue violent la LOI SUR L’HYGIENE ALIMENTAIRE Article 44 , Section 1, Clause 1 (effective le 8/4/2016). La viande non inspectée ne doit pas être transportée, stockée, exposée, vendue ou utilisée pour produire de la nourriture destinée à l’alimentation humaine. Vous trouverez ici toutes les informations légales au sujet du trafic de viande  de chien en Corée du Sud, publiées par KARA – Avocats des droits des animaux en Corée: Nous pensons sincèrement que le jumelage entre deux villes impose la franchise, et que ces échanges participent à l’esprit de coopération existant également en matière de culture, de tourisme et de commerce. Votre implication est primordiale. Elle participera à la protection des animaux d’une mort certaine et leur épargnera les souffrances atroces infligées par les trafiquants de viande de chats et de chiens sud-coréens. Nombreux sont les maires du monde entier qui ont d’ores et déjà soutenu nos campagnes en s'adressant à leurs homologues en Corée du Sud.  Bucheon, est un bel exemple d’une action efficace qui a fait ses preuves en devenant la première ville qui a bannit la  consommation de viande de chien en Corée du Sud  en condamnant les fermes et les abattoirs illégaux et en imposant aux restaurants l’interdiction de la vente de plats à base de viande de chiens! C’est une source d’inspiration pour tous les individus comme vous qui souhaitent soutenir cette cause. L’immense médiatisation internationale qui révèle la brutalité du massacre quotidien de chats et de chiens en Corée du Sud ternit gravement l’image de ce pays, et de Muju-gun. Ne fermez pas les yeux sur cette barbarie! Il est temps de mettre fin à cette tragédie. Dans l’attente de votre aimable réponse,

Petition to South Korea's President Moon Jae-In

Let’s stop supporting South Korea’s economy until they STOP THE FILTHY DOG/CAT MEAT TRADES

Click here for campaign page: available in Nederlands (Dutch), Deutsch (German), Ελληνικά (Greek), Magyar (Hungarian), Italiano (Italian), 日本語 (Japanese), Español (Spanish), Svenska (Swedish), Türkçe (Turkish).  South Korea’s filthy dog meat trade #noshopit2stopit  BOYCOTT SOUTH KOREA  Let’s stop supporting South Korea’s economy until they stop the filthy dog and cat meat trades. Will you join us in a pledge?  Will you pledge to stop supporting South Korea’s already booming economy, until their Government takes effective action to stop the brutal dog and cat meat trades?   South Korea is a leading producer, and exporter of many things bought all over the world, such as: smart phones, laptops, home appliances, speakers, TVs, cars, tires, trucks, oil, gas … the list goes on; from companies such as SAMSUNG, KIA, LG, HYUNDAI, HANKOOK.  South Korea is very happy to benefit from the privileges and profits of an advanced society … but South Korea is not willing to take all of the responsibilities: their Government refuses to take action, and turns a blind eye to the brutality, illegality and shocking practices carried out in the dog and cat meat trades.  Dogs are subjected to inhumane treatment: they are fed rotten maggot-infested slops; imprisoned in small, raised, wire cages; forced to stand or lie on flooring made only of wire; they are given no protection from extreme weather, no exercise or medical care; they are continually made to have litter after litter, and then they are killed using unnecessarily cruel methods, in front of other live dogs. Dog’s penis: eaten to improve men’s virility; cat soup (boiled alive): drunk to cure rheumatism, so believed because cats are nimble creatures … do you still think their ‘smart’ products look quite so smart? Please, join us in a pledge - will you: Boycott South Korea: STOP buying all South Korean products, STOP paying for any South Korean services, STOP visiting South Korea, STOP supporting the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics, that South Korea has been given the privilege of hosting.
