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
Next week, Thursday 26th January 2017 at 11.30am No To Dog Meat are meeting outside the Chinese Embassy again to mark Chinese New Year with a protest against the dog meat trade. Camille (the cute doggie in the picture above) was saved from the back of a truck full of dogs bound for slaughter in 2015. Now he is safe and well looked after here in the UK.
Only continued pressure on the Chinese authorities and donations from supporters will help to save more dogs like Camille from a long journey of suffering on the back of a truck ending in a brutal death at the slaughterhouse. Donations are used to pay for dogs to be rehabilitated and re-homed.
It is now nearly 4 years since No To Dog Meat’s first protest – come and join us and swell the numbers outside the Embassy. We would love to see you.
