NoToDogMeat Activism works ! Over the last 4 years activists have really been working together globally to pressurise the South Korean Government to end the dog meat trade. DASAOM/ C-GAON (the Korean activist group we support) have protested relentlessly all summer and winter outside Moran Market and in the streets of Seoul. Progress is being made despite permission being given for more large dog farms to be built.
On Wednesday, January 25th 2017 (today) activists and media will meet Senator Pyo Chang-Wan, Chairman of the Animal Welfare Committee in the National Assembly in South Korea. He will host a conference where he will announce his plans to introduce changes to the current Korean Animal Protection legislation that hopefully will make further steps to end the dog and cat meat trade.
Our own teams will be out in London on Thursday 26th at the Chinese Embassy and BBC tomorrow Jan 26th. https://notodogmeat.wordpress.com/2017/01/18/join-us-chinese-new-year-2017-london/ Join us! #TeamWork #SupportTheSolution
For the last three years NoToDogMeat has been helping grassroots activists in
South Korea, China and Indonesia. We believe such activists will be the main engine for change in these countries and are encouraged to see the passion and dedication of an emerging number of such people.
Your donations to NoToDogMeat have been helping to :
- provide education and campaign material
- push for animal welfare laws and close legal loopholes
- lobby on their behalf in Governments
- facilitate rescue and rehoming of dogs saved from the cruel meat trade
In 2012 we started a petition to close the gruesome Moran Meat Market
in South Korea and in 2013 our official letter was presented to President Park Geun-hye during her state visit to London. In 2015 the issue of the dog meat tradewas debated in UK parliament and our charity officially thanked for its work.
Last year donors generously donated to help further our work in South Korea
Here is how some of the money has been spent in just the last few weeks:
- regular street stall campaigning in Seoul with our local partners at Cheongnyangni Station Square
- visits to Moran market in Seongnam to investigate the cruelty and slaughter, gain footage and speak directly to traders
- setting up a stray cat feeding point and organising a trap, neuter and release program for them
- rescuing four dogs needing urgent medical treatment.
We will be providing continued regular support in the months leading up to Bok Nal and are supporting other activists who are protesting the new cloning facility.

To: Korean Parliamentary League on
Children Population and Environment
Dear Parliamentary Member
The Bok Days Festival in South Korea runs from July and August each summer. Last year there were cases of dogs and cats being burnt alive and boiled alive. This ancient torture of animals does not belong in a state within the United Nations Country. UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, who is also a Korean, speaks of civil society and a culture of peace. We ask the Korean Parliamentary League on Children, Population and Environment to make illegal the torture and boiling alive of dogs and cats, and any other animal. Last year at the Bok Days Festival, children were sold toy dogs, with knives and sticks attached – so they could practice torture of dogs….
Please end dog and cat meat trade, because the business is based in torture. Dogs and cats are sentient beings and should not be eaten.
Some Korean children are still being taught that dogs are bad, and deserving of torture. Please end this ancient culture of hate.
Some Korean families buy a dog or cat from the market, take it home, torture it and boil it alive. Please stop this disgrace.
Groups of young men beat and torture dogs because they believe they will gain sexual process by eating tortured dogs.
#NoToDogMeat #Korea Proof that street campaigning works! Brave young activists at the beach not far from Busan meat market of hell- Just days before Koreans will feast on tortured dogs as part of their celebrations of the 3 hottest days of the year- mistakenly believing that to gorge on poor souls beaten to death/ electrocuted in front of their pack mates of boiled alive will cool their bodies.
Really proud of activists part of the SAVE ME campaign
