The Animals’ Battalion will be holding a series of demonstrations for the third year in a row, in New York City, 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 that Government to bring about an end to these evil trades.

  • For written protests:

    Subject: The South Korean Dog and Cat Meat Trades

    Dear Sir, or Madam,

    I am contacting you today, as I wish to register my strongest protest to the indifference you, your countrymen and your government show to the suffering and cruelty that is carried out, by many people, within the dog and cat meat trades.

    This cruelty and suffering must end, and I cannot see it ending until your country puts a complete stop to these aberrant trades – trades which have no place in any modern day society.

    South Korea is a country that boasts a wealth of high-profile companies, with a 14th GDP rating; and if it still wishes to be seen as a modern, forward-thinking, civilized society, then your government must rethink its policy on allowing these illegal and unjustifiable trades to continue.

    I sincerely implore your government to immediately begin policing and enforcing your animal protection laws; and, until it brings about the end to both the dog and cat meat trades, I will boycott all forms of tourism, all products, and all services from your country; and I will urge others to do the same.

  • For telephone protests:

    We recommend that the best way forward, when calling an Embassy, is to politely ask to speak to a representative who has the authority to talk about the dog and cat meat trades within South Korea. The representative may well deny all knowledge of any illegality/wrong doing within these trades, or say that they are unable to help on this issue. If they are not forthcoming, then you might make the following statement or similar wording of your own – and please ask them to keep a record of your call and what you have said.

    “As an animal lover, and part of a high-profile animal rights group, which has supporters across the globe, I wish to register my deep concern about the unregulated, cruel and abusive dog and cat meat trades with your country, South Korea.

    I sincerely ask that your government immediately begins policing and enforcing your animal protection laws; and until it brings about a permanent end to both the dog and cat meat trades, I will boycott all forms of tourism, all products, and all services from South Korea; and I will urge others to do the same.”
