[Closed] Call for Action: PyeongChang 2018 – Dream Programme

[Update March 9, 2017] PyeongChang 2018 has removed the user comment area. This is after deleting dozens of our messages protesting the Korea’s horrible cruelty. Thank you everyone who participated and spoke out for the poor Korean dogs and cats.

One of the initiatives in the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics is The Dream Programme: an “initiative to introduce winter sports to young people who otherwise would not have the opportunity to experience winter weather and winter sports”.

They quote: “The dream programme has also helped foster closer ties among nations and enriched the participants through cultural exchange”.

But it is hard to believe that young people from other countries would wish for such an ‘exchange’, knowing of the general ‘acceptance’ by the Korean people of the horrendous cruelty involved in the dog and cat meat trades.

We don’t want the dream of these young people turning into a nightmare, so please tell the PyeongChang 2018 Dream Programme that the best way to keep the dream alive is to end the dog and cat meat trades.

Please let them know this. Click HERE to post your message on their page.

You can do this by scrolling down to the bottom of their page, for the “Reply” section where you can post your message, after logging in via Facebook, Twitter or Google.

    These atrocities must stop. Young people need to be shown examples of hope, love, and compassion. Not evil, barbaric cruelty. Please make this possible for them.

    You promote a dream within the young – what kind of lie are you promoting by taking away the dream of innocent lives by condoning the dog/cat meat trade. A country is judged by the way it treats its animals.

    The history of cats and dogs, as far as I know, throughout the world has not been for eating, the relationship that has evolved makes your using them as food, animals with such hearts, barbaric. Please stop it!!

    I’m so ashamed to know this exists in your country. If you treat your animals, this way, I’m afraid to know how you treat your woman and children. Please make this stop. No living creature deserves to be beaten boiled alive and tortured for your appetite.
