New York, South Korean Consulate General, ‘Boknal’ Demonstration for the South Korean Dogs and Cats (Day 1) – July 17, 2018 Organized by The Animals' Battalion

The Animals’ Battalion will be holding a series of demonstrations in New York City, for the fourth year in a row. They will be demonstrating outside the South Korean Consulate, to make that government aware of how strongly we abhor their indifference to the mass cruelty and suffering inflicted on sentient animals, within the dog and cat meat trades; and also of the failure of their government to bring about an end to this evil trade which makes profits from the suffering of animals.

Tuesday, July 17, was Day 1. Thank you to The Animals’ Battalion for organizing this demonstration, especially Noelia and Roberto and all the dedicated animal advocates who came to help.

We hope to see everyone again at the Day 2 demonstration on July 27 and Day 3 demonstration on August 16. If you are in the New York area, please join us. If you are not in New York, don’t worry. You can still participate and show your support by joining our Phone Blitz. Click HERE for learn more.

Message from The Animals’ Battalion organizers:

Heartfelt thanks to all the activists who came out to protest the first day of Boknal. Yesterday, we had severe rains but did not want to change the date of the demo given that this festival is being strongly challenged in South Korea by activists there right now. We were forced to start earlier before the rain hit. Some activists were there during the downpour itself at the demo’s original time fighting for the dogs. To everyone single one of you- thank you for coming out!
