The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon, a South Korean

UN-Response-for-letter-to-UN-SG-Ban-Ki-Moon

United Nations Secretary General Ban (Family Name) Ki-Moon (Given Name) is a South Korean National. In January of this year we launched a campaign personally urging him to take action to stop the torture and mass murder of millions of dogs in his country’s dog meat industry. The Secretary, however, did not respond to us himself; instead, we received a form letter from the United Nations. Click HERE to see the bureaucratic response the United Nations Secretary General’s Office is sending out in answer to our protest letters!

The letter states that basically there’s nothing Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon can do to stop the dog meat cruelty in South Korea. We must not let one of the most powerful man in the world give us an excuse that he is “powerless”.

I’m a bit jealous. Until two days ago someone told me I am the most famous Korean in the world. Now I have to relinquish. -United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said while learning to dance “Gangnam Style” from Psy, Korean pop artist.

Please call, email and write to the Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon today! He has the power to stop the South Korean Dog Meat Cruelty! You can use our sample letter below or use your own words.

Sample letter to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon

To the honorable United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon,

In response to our petition letter asking for your help in ending the horrific and cruel dog and cat meat industry in South Korea, we received an unsigned form letter from the Public Inquiries Unit of the Department of Public Information of The United Nations. (http://koreandogs.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/UN-Response-for-letter-to-UN-SG-Ban-Ki-Moon.jpg)

That office stated that while they sympathized with the numerous requests for help in ending the barbaric dog and cat meat trade in South Korea, you could not take action alone and the support of the Member States for every action taken in the General Assembly is required. The letter further stated that any proposal must first be presented to the Ambassador of a Member State for consideration, prior to official inscription on the Organization’s agenda and a subsequent vote in the General Assembly.

Since this response did not come directly from you, nor was it signed by anyone in the Office of the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, we do not know with certainty that our petition letter even reached your desk and that you had an opportunity to read and reflect on our request for help.

As we stated in our petition letters, the dog and cat meat trade has not only caused unimaginable suffering from birth to slaughter of millions of animals each year, it has also proven to be a threat to human health through the spreading of infectious diseases. In addition, you should be aware of the growing international pressure being put on South Korea as a result of this terrible brutality towards its animals.

Ashley Montagu, (Humanist of the Year, 1995) said, “The indifference, callousness and contempt that so many people exhibit toward animals is evil first because it results in great suffering in animals, and second because it results in an incalculably great impoverishment of the human spirit.”

Secretary General Ban, we ask that you please watch this video: https://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q.

We are ordinary citizens and we hold no public office. In spite of that, we know that we can, and we do, make a difference. Are you, as one of the most powerful and influential men in the world, claiming that you are powerless to do anything about this terrible travesty perpetrated in your own country?

We believe that the position you hold offers you immeasurable power that can demand immediate action in bringing an end to the shameful dog and cat meat industry in your country. Not only will you help to save countless numbers of defenseless animals of South Korea, it will help strengthen your reputation and the trust that people have in you as an international leader.
Please remember that the actions you take today will ultimately forever define your legacy.

I respectfully ask that you use your incredible influence and leadership to immediately address this despicable industry and help bring an end, once and for all, to the unimaginable cruelty of the dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.

The favor of your reply with your signature is requested. Thank you for your attention to this matter!

Your Name & Address

Please sign petitions against the South Korean Dog Meat Cruelty!

    I have just sent an email to this incapable, sick, old and soulless excuse for a man. He should go back to his evil country if indeed he has NO POWER to do anything about the slaughtering of the dogs and cats. Shame on you Ban KI MOOOOON and your sick country!

      I want to see the cruel dog and cat meat trade shut down for good in Korea and China. But Ban Ki Moon is NOT a sick, old soulless excuse for a man, and criticizing him because his office sent a generic reply back is not appropriate. His office receives hundreds and hundreds of messages daily, and they cannot deal with them all at once. Be respectful and kind to him, he has done a lot of good for the world. Express your concerns for the dogs and cats, but please, don’t shame Mr. Moon. Korea is not a Sick Country either. There are SOME people that eat dog and cat, but not all, and there are many Koreans that are just as horrified as we are about this heinous cruelty to dogs and cats.

How can a n educated man of your standing sit back and do nothing about the suffering of these poor creatures. Do you eat cat and dog? Do you torture it first to improve the flavour of the meat? There must be a reason why you’re countrys still practising this loathsome tradition. I want answers from you regarding where you stand on this matter.

      How can you have that position coming from such retarded nation still living in Stone Age? The utter lack of morality, of compassion for the nightmarish suffering of those animals and the fact that your people have no intentions to change anything are utterly unbearable. The way Southkorea tortures dogs and cats is an insult to all animals loving people all over the world. Doing nothing to make things change makes you an accomplice of those criminels. This is your country and you should feel responsable but you don’t. You deserve no respect.

      Dit duivels werk moet stoppen, maar het gaat niet alléén om de vlees handel van honden en katten maar ook om de bont en leerhandel van deze dieren, waar de winkels van vol liggen ondanks een verbod op het honden en kattenbont, op het leer is nog geen verbod. Ik heb de regering gevraagd om een verbod op alles van leer en bont uit aziatische landen, ze vinden het afgrijselijk maar doen niks! De meeste mensen weten niet eens van dit afgrijselijke lijden van deze honden en katten.

    Why are people calling South Korea a vile country? Majority of people here are against dog meat consumption and animal cruelty.
    It’s just frustrating how long this is taking because some politicians are being conscientious about putting a ban on a part of “tradition”.
    This is a big deal now in Korea and around the world. Dog consumption will be banned, that’s for sure.

    É lamentável que um Lugar como os paises asiáticos sejam tão cruéis com os animais. comer carne de um ser tão inteligente como Cães e gatos é canibalismo. As pessoas deste país estão morrendo de fome? não tem o que comer? Como podem ser tão indiferente com este assunto diante de uma mobilização mundial? ou param com a matança destes inoscentes, ou faremos uma campanha para que ninguém mais compre seus produtos.

    It is unfortunate that a place as Asian countries are so cruel to animals. eating meat from a being as smart as dogs and cats is cannibalism. The people of this country are starving? You have nothing to eat? How can you be so indifferent to this issue before a worldwide movement? or stop the killing of these inoscentes, or make a campaign so no one else to buy their products.

    • Adrian Shiva

      Yes, very sad. What’s more, it is not about food shortage at all. Not one bit. It’s about a superstition that eating dog and cat meat blesses them with benefits — and the worst part is that they believe the more the animals are tortured (skinned alive, then cooked alive), the greater the blessings. Again, this is not about having something to eat, but for the “blessings”, some of which are apparently “increased luck”, “helps cool the body” and, pathetically enough, “increased male sexual potency”. They also believe that “the greater the animal’s suffering, the tastier the meat!”.

      All of this superstition, which actually encourages insane torture of animals and therefore has even created a “torture culture” of sorts (encouraging sadism unto animals), when the reality is not only that these animals are so horrifically tortured so needlessly, but also that the dog/cat meat consumption is a huge reason for virus/disease outbreaks such as rabies.

        That’s right Adrian. I’m aware of all these details, including that these demented individuals think that the more they torture an animal the more of an aphrodisiac it becomes. They are utterly and hopelessly insane. I think almost all of Korea is suffering from insanity. I’ve met many harmless insane individuals in my life, but these demons are criminally insane; psychopaths!

    Killing and eating dogs and cats is a horrific, dark ages practise. In this enlightened day and age, when we know that dogs are sentient animals, with feelings and fears just like we humans. How can an entire race of people be so cruel and debased as to kill these animals without feeling an remorse? These people would not hesitate to do unspeakably cruel acts to other humans as well, since they obviously have no conscience. A man who has been appointed as heading up the United (useless) Nations, and who has no compassion or empathy for the atrocious practices of his country, should be removed from this prestigious office, that claims to promote human kindness and dignity to all living beings. God help us, if all humans become like these people, with no conscience and able to kill relentlessly and cruelly. They make me sick to my stomach. :(

    The only thing South Korea is becoming known for, in the whole World, is not its history or its culture, but for its EXTREME CRUELTY towards our most beloved family friends, the dogs and cats. The level of torture that these poor innocent and loving creatures are submitted to is unbelieavable and unacceptable !! No cultural difference can justify such savage behavior !! South Korea, if you want to be known in the world for good things, ACT NOW to stop these atrocities forever !! Show the World that your people actually have a brain and a heart, and stop this sickness now !! Until then, I will be boycotting every South Korean product, and NEVER EVEN CONSIDER the possibility of visiting such demonic country !!

Perhaps when they have run out of animals to torture and eat they will start on each other and become extinct-we can only hope…. I know not all Chinese go along with these vile practices but you wonder where they are when the rest of the world has to keep petitioning this bunch of sadists to try and stop them from their never ending barbarity.God will certainly pay them back for their vile ways and the sooner the better.

    Civilized People do not TORTURE animals to death, enjoy their suffering and promote barbaric festivals to celebrate. Civilized people do not condone, nor perpetuate bloody massacres called serial killing for psychological pleasure. Civilized cultures have animal welfare laws to protect defenseless creatures, actually enforce those laws and impose justice when violated. It’s not perfect, but we don’t condone it. The species to be consumed is debatable, but you kill swiftly and humanely. The level of sadistic torture and abuse imposed is not acceptable and there is no justification, nor defense. This type of demonic practice transcends culture or demographics… it’s psychotic. Any individual that inflicts such misery is clearly demented and not sane. Evidently, parts of Asia have not evolved and they simply want to inflict sadistic harm on helpless animals. Regardless of its foolish beliefs, myths or pure ignorance…it’s still torture, barbaric, evil and vile. Weak Asian Officials are just as guilty for condoning it, but they’re probably taking bribes. It’s about unnecessary torture and abuse. It’s promoted, celebrated and condoned. Intelligent, sane, and compassionate people know the difference.

      I have a Korean friend. When I tactfully brought this up, she said, oh, we only eat yellow dogs. I was speechless. This is a woman who lives in this country for many years, has a child and American husband here. she apperas to be a very nice person and seemingly normal. The depth of the difference between us and the people of Korea is mind boggling. They perceive animals and their own entitlement to exploit them, differently. They will say, “we need the meat”. So they probably don’t get it that we love our domesticated animals and dont eat them. i love my cats. Their daughter has no pets. Poor girl. My daughter is friends with hers. These folks are different from us. They probably live closer to all kinds of animals because they are much poorer. So they probably dont understand the difference between our pets and other animals. Lets face it, Other animals act like cats and dogs sometimes. So, we probably sound animal crazy or just silly and emotional and even hypocritical to them. In their impoverished lives they probably could not care less what we think. I dont have the answer for huge swaths of people who lack our consciousness. I can tell you the problem is huge. They don’t deserve these animals that totally trust us-dogs and cats. I think understanding the people’s ignorance and barriers to change is an important consideration. we cant change them. We can set an example by fighting for the rights of all animals. That is morally consistent. And we can beg, reason, petition, protest and ban korean products. the last one is the most powerful!!!!

      Did you ask your Korean friend why they have to torture these animals rather than kill them humanely? They are a bunch of sick a holes and if that was my friend I think they would get a lot more than asked discreetly. I think we should not only ban their products but ban them and anything to do with them from all other Countries then and they may get the message. I wouldn’t buy anything make if Korea and if everyone else did the same they would run out of animals and could start eating each other.

    Its not just the consumption of these animals, its the deliberate cruelty they are made to suffer which is so bad. Its terrible! I think that since its sadistic, its sadism, which is a mental illness. It should be removed ftom humanity, like any other serious illness is where possible. In the United Kingdom, deafness has been almost eradicated using pre implantation genetic diagnosis. This method should be used to eradicate sadism and psychopathy, too.

Right now the peoples of the United States don’t hold hold Korea and China is very high esteem. Only you can change this.

    If I had the funds and help of fellow constituents, I would travel to this hellhole of a country and shut down every dog farm and meat market. And you won’t be able to hide what you are doing to our family members anymore. To those like Nami Kim who are trying to help, God Bless you and your fellow helpers who stand up against your incontinent government to aid all you can. To the people of Korea and China, wake up and stop this before you become the next meal when they run out of dogs and cats. And to those who steal these family members you are being watched and the day of judgement is coming when you will pay the ultimate price as well.

    These rotten scumbags are so insane they don’t even shoot the poor, innocent babies through the head before cooking them! What’s the matter with them?! They don’t deserve to see the sun or breathe the same air we breathe. How on earth can you boil an animal alive for God’s Sake?! Maybe if they were being boiled alive they would rethink their evil ways. These are the ‘”living dead” Jesus spoke of in Revelation. My Teacher, Sathya Sai Baba calls them “living corpses”. Both mean the same thing: living zombies. I’m afraid these zombies are a plague upon the face of the Earth.

    I just called and was told be several people that answered that they there is nothing that can be done on their end, sounds as though I was given the same BS that everyone else was told. However, they directed me to contact Korean Missions at 212-439-9000. I did call them and there was no answer so I left a message asking them to please do what they can to stop this disgrace and I told them that I would boycott all Korean products and that I would make sure everyone I know will do the same as well until this is brought to an end! I also just sent out a copy of the sample letter you have here to the UN office as well. I will continue to do all the things you have outlined on your site to bring this to an end and I am no above contacting them over and over and over if that is what is takes. I wont stop until this stops!!!

    And that is what we try to teach our children and grandchildren; to live on a planet with a high civilization; together with all these beautiful animals without cruelty.
