Petition to South Korean Government, Dr. Pyo Changwon

South Korean Government: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 Dr. Pyo Changwon 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. With the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games being hosted in Pyeongchang, I would ask that you do all in your power to stop this barbarism and cruelty as the world’s attention will be on South Korea both before and during the events. 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] 표창원 국회의원님과 대한민국정부 : 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. 평창에서 개최되는 2018년 동계 올림픽 게임이 다가오고 있습니다. 이 행사 전과 과정 중에 전 세계의 관심이 한국에 집중될 터인데 아무쪼록 이 야만적이고 잔인한 관습에 종지부를 찍을 수 있도록 온 힘을 다해주시기를 요청드립니다. 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 Michael Goldstein

Pledge Not to Fund Nuclear War in Korea

Amid the welter of Donald Trump's ugly tweets on so many topics, we need to recognize the emergency created by those threatening to annihilate the people and land of North Korea. Donald Trump has repeatedly threatened to destroy North Korea, a country of 25,000,000 people, if its leaders don't cease building a nuclear deterrent to threatened attacks from the U.S. We are a country that has never acknowledged its barbarous bombing campaign in the Korean War and that has refused Pyongyang's pleas for a peace agreement in favor of painful economic and diplomatic isolation and frequent military maneuvers threatening an attack. Korea knows our disastrous record of "regime change" in countries that we don't like, if they lack the capacity to inflict damage on the U.S.  From G.W. Bush's proclaiming the country part of an "Axis of Evil" to Barack Obama's excepting the country from his historic no-first-strike pledge, we have given ongoing reasons for the DPRK to create a credible deterrent to U.S. attack. Like the "telephone tax" resisters against the Vietnam War, we can decline to voluntarily finance the war machine that Trump wants to use. (Criminal prosecution for this misdemeanor is "currently almost unheard of." The pledge guarantees that signers are committed to tax resistance only if a quarter of a million of us do the same. Because it is directed to its originator, your name will not be sent to any government official. "We, the undersigned, pledge to use every non-fraudulent means to withhold our federal income tax payments (increasing the withholding allowances on a W-4 given to employers, failing to make self-employed estimated tax payments, not paying April 15 balances) until the United States officially repudiates its threats of resumed war against North Korea and enters into the Korean Peninsula disarmament negotiations supported by every other country in the region. We are, however, committed to act on this pledge only after being notified that 250,000 people have signed it."

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: http://koreandogs.org/sister-city-campaign-muju-gun-south-korea-evian-france/ 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: 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 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):  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 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: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q 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: http://koreandogs.org/kara-publishes-legal-information-booklet-ending-dog-meat-consumption/ 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,
