[News] Dog farmers demand that their industry be legalized
Hankyoreh, English news in Korea, reported on October 8, 2017 that “About 250 members of the Korean Dog Farmers Association staged a large demonstration on Sept. 22 demanding that their industry be legally recognized and regulated like other livestock sectors. The association members are also protesting a bill offered in the National Assembly by Minjoo Party lawmaker Pyo Chang-won that would ban the consumption of dog meat. The farmers gathered in Jong-no with nine caged dogs and then marched toward the Blue House.”

Boycott PyeongChang 2018 – Contact the International Olympic Committee
The countdown to the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic has begun! Don’t let this opportunity to expose South Korea’s horrendous cruelty to the world pass you by. Demand an end to the mass slaughter of our best friends. Make the call, send letters to the International Olympic Committee and the PyeongChang 2018 Organizing Committee TODAY, voicing your disapproval and disgust at the South Korean government’s indifference in allowing this senseless, barbaric trade to continue.

We will need the help of volunteers to hand out our leaflets and to talk to as many of the visitors as possible, to make them aware of our campaign to help the South Korean dogs and cats. Can you help? Free T-shirts and cold drinks are provided to volunteers at this event.
Location: San Francisco, Fisherman’s Wharf located near the corner of Jefferson and Powell streets along the chain link fence.
