Korea smiles and the world smiles back???
With the 2018 Pyeonchang Winter Olympics coming up in South Korea, their government agency for promoting tourism, Korea Tourism Organization, is embarking on the nationwide campaign – “K-smile, Korea smiles and the world smiles back.” This endeavor would attempt to showcase South Korea as a modern, forward thinking and kind nation to tourists.
This illusion could not be farther from the truth.
South Korea continues to support and permit a horrific and illegal dog and cat meat trade that subjects millions of animals to abuse, torture and murder on a daily basis. While animal protection laws have been put in place to protect prohibit these practices, the government and its law enforcement do nothing to prevent the continued butchering and sales of these animals.
We need to show South Korea that we will not endorse, visit or financially support with our tourism a country whose barbarism and base indifference to the suffering, murder and consumption of dogs and cats is absolutely unacceptable.
Please help us raise our voices together as One to say we will not accept this, and as fellow sentient beings we will not stand for this illegal industry to go on any longer!
