Once again supportive Glendale responds to call to action against the dog meat trade.
On February 14, 2017, we received another positive response from the City of Glendale, regarding our campaign protesting their Sister City, Gimpo’s dog meat cruelty. Ms. Eliza Papazian from the City of Glendale’s Management Services sent us an email letter in which she states “The City of Glendale has and continues to work in conjunction with our local Korean Sister City Association and Gimpo representatives to monitor this situation and ensure that these atrocities do not continue to occur.”
Previously, the former Mayor of Glendale, and the current City Councilman, Mr. Zareh Sinanyan, reached out to Gimpo calling for action to enforce the law. Glendale is also the first city ever, as a result of our many Sister City/State campaigns and petitions, to kindly respond to us by taking positive action. We are very grateful to Mayor Paula Devine and the entire City Council of Glendale for caring about the poor Korean dogs and taking action to speak out for them.

PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic in South Korea is underway. Speak Out Now or Regret Later.
South Korea is now firmly in the spotlight with the run to the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics, being held from 9th-25th February 2018 … and then the light will be on full beam.
And, while part of the journey for many international tourists visiting South Korea for these Winter Olympics will be to experience South Korea’s promoted ‘international cuisine’, we want to be sure that they also know about the ‘hidden cuisine’: products of the cruel and sadistic dog meat trade … that, once again, this country will be keen to keep from foreign eyes.
Out of sight is definitely not out of mind: the barbaric dog meat trade will still be going on. So let’s make sure this trade does not get hidden, and let’s make sure that South Korea knows they will be held accountable.
