South Korea’s Dog Meat Cruelty-Response received from the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon’s Office
We would like to thank everyone who took the time to call, email, or write to United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon asking for his help in ending South Korea’s horrendously cruel Dog Meat Trade. Click HERE for our campaign to contact the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon!
In response, we received an unsigned form letter from the Public Inquiries Unit of the Department of Public Information of The United Nations, stating that they had carefully read and noted the contents of the many emails and letters. They acknowledged that while they sympathized with our requests, due to protocols they basically could do nothing about the Dog Meat Trade.
Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon is a citizen of South Korea first, before he is Secretary General of the United Nations. If he is not willing to help end the terrible atrocities committed against millions of defenseless companion animals taking place in his own country, how can we trust and respect his character and his ability to lead the United Nations effectively? Without the respect of his own UN staff, how can he motivate and inspire them to perform their jobs in maintaining peace around the world? If the Secretary General of the United Nations doesn’t have the power to help end the dog meat industry in his own country, who does?
Attempting to avoid the issue of his country’s extreme cruelty to man’s best friend by giving weak excuses to all of us dedicated, compassionate animal rights activists is both shameful and disappointing, but it will not stop us!
Let us continue to flood his office with our letters, our phone calls, and our emails, as we know that each letter has to be read and processed, if only to send a form letter in return. We will not be silenced by Secretary General Ban’s indifference and inaction! Click HERE to take action!
