President Moon accepts foreigners’ complaints. Send yours TODAY!
The Korea Times reported on May 26, 2017 that “Foreigners now have an official window to deliver their complaints directly to the central government, but they must be in a written format without a personal consultation. President Moon Jae-in opened on Thursday Gwanghwamun 1st Street, an outdoor pavilion comprising blue modular spaces, next to the Government Complex in Gwanghwamun, where visitors can leave their comments about the new administration. Comments can also be submitted online to a website launched on Friday…. Foreigners can submit their comments in their own languages to staff at the pavilion or via the email indicated on the website gwanghwamoon1st.go.kr”
This is the chance to send our message to the President of South Korea, that we are against Korea’s cruel dog and cat meat trade. President Moon is more interested in improving the welfare of Korean animals than his predecessor. So let’s take full advantage of this opportunity to make it very clear that people from all over the world are asking Korea to stop the killing and eating of animals, which are universally considered as companion animals.
Deadline for submitting your complaint is July 12, 2017. President Moon will report back at the end of August.
