[Closed] Call for Action: PyeongChang 2018 – Organizing Committee

[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.

The PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games (POCOG) was launched back in October 2011. It is an event which has been a long time in the planning: the POCOG want to make sure they ‘get it right’.

We want to let them know that the best way to ‘get it right’ is, in the first instance, to put a stop to the ‘wrong’ that is being committed in the dog and cat meat trades.

We want to let them know that, if they do nothing to stop these ‘wrongs’ by permanently ending these horrendous trades, many people across the world will boycott this Olympic Event, and will boycott the sponsoring companies, too.

Suggested message:

Mr. Hee-beom Lee, President and CEO, and all members of the Organizing Committee, we want to let you know that the best way to ensure the success of your PyeongChang 2018 Olympic events would be to permanently end the dog and cat meat trades – now – before these events take place, otherwise we will boycott PyeongChang 2018 and all of the sponsoring companies.

And, we call on you, Mr Lee, who was awarded the Order of Service Merit, to once again stand up and render outstanding service to your country by taking a lead in permanently banning the dog and cat meat trades – for the benefit of these Olympic events and all the citizens in your country.

    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 am getting sick only to look at the pictures of the poor dogs in small cases and when I read about what is going on in your country I am getting even more sick. In Denmark we treat the dog and the cat as family members and all people here think you must be monsters, when you do this to these poor animals. No animals should be treated like this, it is so disgusting, how can you?

    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 no matter what the reason. This is sickening.

    Stop this evil vile torturing and killing of dogs and cats . The Olympic Games will be a joke if this is held within a country who commit such barbarism. The world watches and awaits on an intelligent person of power who will have the wisdom and compassion to know what’s right and what’s wrong …, TORTURING AND KILLING THESE INNOCENT ANIMALS IS WRONG TOTALLY WRONG … You are TERRORISTS towards another species … There is no other words other than you are illetarate evil people who are fanatics of blood shed in the worst form of sickness. We disrepect your kind you are worse than ISIS …, you are EVIL and we DO NOT want this evil within our world. Stop NOW

    Done, on their page. Please guys as someone else also said, post on their offical page as was advised in the instructions. Also, while venting out is fine but calling them names won’t make them change one bit. Money drives the world and it’s the commercial aspect and bad publicity which will scare these people. They have been holding games after games and international events and I really wonder if our comments affect them even one bit. As long as they have the backing of the IOC and the sponsors, what deters them from holding the games. I can understand about Samsung & LG but Coca Cola, Panasonic and others are not Korean companies. Why can’t they be forced to stop sponsoring events in Korea?
