    Animal Protection Statement of S. Korean Youth

    We want
    Animals to live a happy life with us.
    We want
    Animals to have a better life in Korea.
    We want
    Animals to be treated as our family members.

    S. Koreans have been eating dog meat from the past, and this bad habit has not disappeared. In the global era, the dog meat has been banned in almost all countries along with desires for animal protection; however, countries such as Korea, China, Vietnam, and Philippines have not yet reached this level.

    In Korea, too, many people are trying to change these immoral practices by taking the importance of protecting animals. In response to this global animal protection movement, Korean youths, who will be the protagonists of this country, are eager to fix these bad practices.

    2.5 million dogs are slaughtered annually for a meal in S. Korea, and each year 6 million dogs suffer from animal testing in the world.

    Animals are not for human, nor for experiment. They are the living creatures that we should respect.
    However, this country who is obliged to protect them denies their duty.
    Adults who are supposed to be the leaders are turning their back.

    To all adults around the world, Korean youths demand for a global community where everyone respects life. We would like to ask for your support so thus accomplish our goal. Please send cheer letters and messages to help us fulfill our desires.

    Dear President Moon, who leads Korea to a better place to live!
    You are the first leader who have adopted the abandoned dog in the Blue House.
    We want your active support that you promised during the days of the candidate. In that way, we will finally be able to reach mature civic consciousness.

    Animal protection and human protection are not separable matters.
    Korean youths want a joyful future with animals.

    Please provide a place of respect for life for the future of our generation.
    Please prepare a place where animals can be protected for the future of our generation.

    From desires of Korean youth, Park Jong-hoon (2nd grade in Sejong High School) and 120 youths;
