Petition to South Korean Government, President Moon Jae-In

President Moon Jae-In: Please stop the torture and consumption of dogs and cats in Korea.

Our goal is 200K signatures. Please sign and share for the Korean dogs and cats.  For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/president-moon-end-dmt/ Thank you!  Dear President Moon Jae-In and the South Korean Government, Please watch these videos: Shocking Cruelty of South Korean Dog Meat Industry http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q Documentary trailer: Man bites dog in South Korea https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo I am extremely upset about the torture and consumption of companion animals in South Korea.  With the ubiquity of social medias, every day we are seeing shocking and heartbreaking images and videos of innocent dogs being tortured and killed in your country. Even though Korea has established an Animal Protection Law for companion animals, dogs are still beaten, hung, electrocuted, and treated brutally by farmers and slaughters. Also, dogs and cats are still being beaten and boiled alive for so-called elixirs, which do not have medical properties except in the minds of ignorant and gullible customers. These practices have no place in the modern world. Other Asian countries have banned the eating of dog meat and the cruel industry that goes with it, such as Taiwan and the Philippines. Why does Korea persist in lagging behind these countries and other civilized societies? It’s the responsibility of the Korean government to once and for all end the cruel dog meat and cat medicine industries in Korea. It is time to dismiss the childish myths and propaganda surrounding these industries and their vile products. It is time to leave behind backward and unnecessary traditions. And it is time for Korea to start taking animal welfare seriously and show that it really does have a compassionate and ethical society. That means it is time for the 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 proper manner. Until these things are done, Korea’s reputation in the international community will continue to suffer. Its citizens will continue to face shame and embarrassment. And Korea will continue to be regarded as “third world,” despite its modernization and attempts at globalized thinking. From now on, I will boycott Korean products, and I will not support Korean companies or visit Korea until the abuse of cats and dogs has finally ended. Yours sincerely, [Korean] 문재인 대통령님과 대한민국정부에게: 잔인무도한 개, 고양이 식용을 즉각 중지해주세요! 다음의 동영상을 봐주시기 바랍니다. http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q https://youtu.be/9SKVdNrfIZo 저는 대한민국에서는 반려동물을 고문하고 잡아먹는다는 사실을 접하고 엄청난 충격을 받았습니다. 산재해 있는 소셜 미디어를 통해서 한국에 있는 아무런 죄 없는 개들이 고문 당하고 죽임 당하는 끔찍하고 가슴 아픈 장면이 담긴 사진과 동영상을 매순간 접하고 있습니다. 비록 한국이 반려동물에 대한 동물보호법을 제정했지만 개들은 여전히 개농장 주인과 도살업자에게 구타당하고, 목 매달리고, 감전되고, 잔인하게 취급 당하고 있습니다. 또 보약이라는 미명하에 아직도 개와 고양이를 산채로 끓는 물에 집어넣고 있습니다. 아무런 의학적 효과가 증명된 바 없음에도 불구하고 무지하고 잘 속아넘어가는 사람들은 여전히 효험이 있다고 믿고 있습니다. 이러한 관행은 오늘날 어디에서도 찾아볼 수 없는 일입니다. 대만이나 필리핀 같은 다른 아시아 국가들은 이미 개고기와 개고기 관련 산업을 금지시켰습니다. 한국이 왜 이러한 나라들이나 다른 문명 사회보다 뒤쳐진 채로 남아있는지 이해할 수가 없습니다. 한국에서 이 잔인하기 짝이 없는 개고기 산업과 고양이로 만든 보약 산업을 영원히 근절시키는 것은 대한민국 정부의 책임입니다. 이와 관련된 산업과 혐오식품을 둘러싼 어리석은 괴담과 주장을 떨쳐버릴 때입니다. 낙후되고 불필요한 전통은 과감히 버릴 때입니다. 그리고 동물복지 문제를 심각하게 받아들여서 한국 사회가 자비롭고 윤리적인 사회라는 것을 보여줄 때입니다. 즉, 한국 정부가 대중들에게 반려동물의 중성화의 중요성, 유기금지, 동물에 대한 적절한 취급에 대해 더 나은 교육을 시작할 때라는 뜻입니다. 그렇지 않으면 한국은 국제사회에서 계속해서 나쁜 평판을 이어가게 될 것입니다. 한국 국민들 역시 수치와 곤란함을 겪게 될 겁니다. 한국이 근대화되었고 국제화된 사고를 도입하려 함에도 불구하고 여전히 “제3세계 후진국가”로 인식될 것입니다. 저는 개와 고양이에 대한 학대가 한국에서 완전히 사라지기 전까지 한국 제품을 구매하지 않을 것이고 한국 회사를 이용하거나 한국을 방문하지 않을 것입니다. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- For the translation of this petition in Spanish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Hungarian, visit: http://koreandogs.org/what-you-can-do/contacts-for-protest/sample-protest-letter/

Petition to Mayor Byung-Soo Suh 서병수 부산시장, President Moon Jae-In

Busan, South Korea! Close down all illegal dog slaughterhouses & restaurants in Gupo market now!

For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/busan-gupo-dog-meat-markets-cruelty/ Dear Mayor Byung-Soo Suh,  서병수 부산시장님께, 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 Busan 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; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.  One of the largest market in South Korea that sells dogs dead and alive for meat is the infamous "Gupo Market" in Busan.  Please watch this TV news about the Busan Gupo Market: http://ch1.tbroad.com/content/view?parent_no=24&content_no=66&p_no=38496 There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for human consumption yet these laws are routinely and blatantly ignored. We demand that Busan 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):  http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ Evidence of violations are overwhelming and clearly documented. Below are few of many videos, photos and news articles available that proves these violations: Busan Gupo Dog Meat Market https://youtu.be/xdD8H_JQ7eo Korean Dog Meat - Former Pets 3 http://youtu.be/_JPYK3yTqWY  Korean Dog Meat - Former Pets 4 http://youtu.be/hXe3GV0GOB4  Cruelty during transport http://youtu.be/MJ1Z4ZT1Sv8 Pets dogs turning into meat http://youtu.be/qyyN2SmKRpc It's time the South Korean government stop turning a blind eye on this illegal and cruel industry and enforce their Animal Protection Law. It's time they stop making excuses about "Legal Blind Spot" and pointing fingers at each other for the problem. It's time they enact and enforce a clear law to ban this brutal killing and abuse once and for all. In Korean adage, "So Tam Dae Shil (소탐대실 小貪大失 )" means you can suffer a big loss in going after a small gain. We urge South Korea to realize that there is much bigger loss at stake while they are insisting on a small gain of another choice of meat. It is time that South Korea show the world that they are not void of compassion and conscience and that they take their Animal Protection Law seriously. We, the people of the world, will boycott all South Korean products and tourism until this shameful atrocity of dog meat trade finally comes to an end.

Amend the constitution for the betterment of all animals. End the dog meat trade in Korea

For more actions you can take please click here: http://koreandogs.org/call-for-action-constitution/ South Korea: Amend the constitution for the betterment of all animals.  End the dog meat trade in South Korea! We need your help to urge South Korea to amend the constitution to align themselves with the modern world in the way the law recognizes and protects animals.  Please sign this petition to provide a voice to the animals under the care of the Korean people, speak up for them and for all supporters of basic animal rights in Korea.  We are asking to amend the constitution for the betterment of all animals. Tell Korea the world is watching and waiting with baited breath for a change! 나는 대한민국 헌법에 동물권이 명시되기를 바랍니다.헌법을 개정하여 -대한민국 국가에 동물의 보호 의무를 부여하고,-대한민국 국가는 동물을 대신하여 시민단체가 동물의 보호와 권리를 지켜주기 위하여 사법절차에 참여할 수 있도록 보장할 것을 엄숙히 요구합니다. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear South Korean Government, The current Korean constitution regards dogs that are raised for food as different to those raised as companion animals.  Dogs raised for meat do not benefit from the protection from cruel or inhumane treatment afforded under Korea's animal protection law.  In the present legal system 'meat dogs' are regarded as objects, mere property, with no right to food, water, light or shelter or indeed to be protected from cruelty or abuse by humans.  The law reflects the ludicrous view that that these dogs are for slaughter anyway so they should not be protected and that they are somehow different to companion dogs.  This is of course complete and utter nonsense, there is no such difference between dogs raised for meat and dogs raised as pets.  Many 'meat dogs' in slaughter houses resemble the revered Korean Jindo or Japanese Tosa, often contain pure breed lines, there is no specific 'breed' of 'meat dog', there are no genetic or behavioral differences between your faithful companion and family guardian and the poor suffering animal locked in an endless row of wire cages. Even if these dogs were to be afforded protection under the current Korean animal protection law, how would South Korea aim to enforce it when there is such a thriving industry in the meat dog trade?  We have a black hole in Korea's legislation in which these poor dogs are placed, born to suffer and die at the hands of money making dog farmers.  A black hole which is being exploited by the often illegally operated dog meat farmers and butchers. Therefore, affirmative action needs to be taken now to ensure that the constitution is amended to address this black hole in the law. The Government would do well to take note of how some of the leading countries recognise animal welfare and rights and listen to the international condemnation of the dog meat trade within its borders. The world is watching and waiting with bated breath for a change!  ---------------------------------------------------- Sharing for Korea Animal Rights Advocates: https://www.facebook.com/kara.animal/videos/1224217640999088/ (무한 공유 요청) 30년 만에 이뤄질 헌법개정! 헌법에 동물권이 명시될 수 있도록 여러분들께서 도와주세요!! 동물이 물건과 같이 간주되는 현재의 법체계에서는 설사 동물이 극악한 학대상황에 놓여 있어도 학대자로부터 소유권을 박탈할 수가 없습니다. 동물을 학대해서 그 동물이 죽었더라도 학대자가 다른 동물을 또 데려다 같은 행위를 하는 것도 막을 수 없습니다. 이번에 이뤄질 헌법 개정에서 인간을 넘어 동물의 생명권이 논의될 수 있도록 여러분들께서 적극적으로 의견을 개진해 주세요. 30년반에 이뤄지는 헌법개정에서 우리사회 최약자 무고한 동물들의 권리가 논의될 수 있도록 여러분들께서 ‘공유’와 ‘참여’로 꼭 힘을 더해 주세요! 성함과 이메일을 적으시고 개인정보 수집에 동의해 주신 후 의견쓰기란 중 1. 기본권(헌법전문, 제 1장~제 2장)에 아래 내용을 참고하셔서 의견 제출해 주시기 바랍니다. 매 맞고 죽어가도 학대자의 손에 살아야 하는 동물들을 위해 단 1분의 시간을 내 주세요. ‘30년만의 헌법개정! 국민의 소중한 의견을 받습니다‘ 의견 제시하기http://assembly.surveyplus.kr/sp2/S41072wrvc9g/in.asp?pid=S41072wrvc9g&grpid=rdn 의견개요 ==> “국민들의 삶의 기반으로서의 환경권을 실효적으로 구체화하고 그 환경을 이루는 삶의 주체로서의 '생명'으로 권리 주체를 확장하여 실질적으로 환경을 보전하고 생명의 안전을 보장하는 헌법적 근간을 마련해 주세요”

Petition to Commission Chairman Bill Brunson of Glynn County

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

For more actions you can take please visit: http://koreandogs.org/friendship-city-campaign-taean-gun-south-korea-glynn-county-georgia/ Commission Chairman Bill Brunson of Glynn County: Tell Friendship City, Taean-gun, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats. Glynn County has become Friendship City with Taean-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 Glynn County would have expected to learn about the differences in cultural practices of the Taean-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 Taean-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.

In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. 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: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q 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 Taean-gun Mayor Sang-Gi Han to take action, and to state that Glynn County and its citizens demand that Taean-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.

Please refer to the legal information regarding the dog meat consumption in South Korea published by KARA (Korea Animal Rights Advocates):  http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ 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 Taean-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. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
