[Campaign Closed] Sister City Campaign – Seoul, South Korea – New South Wales, Australia

[Update: November 22, 2017] New South Wales Department of Industry – Trade & Investment responds.

Below is another response from the New South Wales government regarding our campaign. This one comes from the Trade & Investment of Department of Industry. Thank you MaryAnn, for forwarding this letter to us. We are disappointed by New South Wales’s response, but it will not discourage us. Our campaign is raising awareness to the people around the world about the horrific cruelty taking place in South Korea which will impact their image. We must continue to work to end the brutal slaughter of sentient animals who are our friends, family, and even our children. Thank you to all of you who have taken action.

[Update: November 6, 2017] New South Wales Premier responds.

We received a response from the New South Wales Premier’s Office on November 6. We had hoped that they would inform us that they would be reaching out to their Sister City, Seoul, South Korea, but their response didn’t indicate any plans to take action to address our concerns. However, they did state that our comments have been “carefully reviewed”, and we are grateful, therefore, to the New South Wales Premier’s Office for their acknowledgment of our campaign and concerns.
We will close our campaign now.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian of New South Wales: Tell Sister City, Seoul, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

Seoul became Sister city with New South Wales in 1991.

In Seoul, there are countless dog farms, slaughterhouses, markets and restaurants where the dogs, who are tortured their entire lives, end up being slaughtered in the most inhumane ways, such as by electrocution, hanging or beating; and then thrown into boiling water – sometimes while they are still alive. In many places, dogs are being killed in full view of other terrified, caged dogs; and this takes place in public and in broad daylight. In addition, many abandoned and stolen former pets end up in this industry, and are subjected to the same cruelty.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of Seoul’s dog meat demand.

The searches resulted in: 1,116 Health Food Shops; and 437 restaurants in and around Seoul.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Food Shops and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, just imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be present in and around Seoul in order to supply all of these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.
