NoToDogMeat meets Mayor of Seoul

Posted on Updated on

Following the impeachment of South Korean President Park Geun-hye in March 2017, The Mayor of Seoul Mr Wonsoon Park has been touring Europe to discuss the role of Citizen Democracy in the political arena. Our CEO Julia De Cadenet met with him two days ago on Monday morning to highlight how animal welfare advocates also have a voice that needs to be heard.

Later in the afternoon we held a small protest outside the Korean Embassy, where the staff were extremely welcoming. They kindly allowed us to present our data (which included details of the UN Sustainable Development Goals and some photos showing the torture of dogs for their meat) inside the embassy.  Embassy staff members also came out to talk to us.

For the first time in our 5 years of campaigning they apologised for the suffering of the animals and acknowledged that even though the live slaughter of dogs has ceased at Moran Market, they understand our concerns that there could still be abuse happening at the dog farms.

We all have a long way to go, but today we really felt we were heard and we continue to stand in solidarity with our activist friends DASOM CCSOGAON 통합시민사회단체 가온 (대표 이중호) in Korea.
