The Animals’ Battalion 2019 ‘Boknal’ Demonstrations in New York

The Animals' BattalionWe are very excited that the New York based animal rights group “The Animals’ Battalion” will be organizing demonstrations in front of the Korean Consulate General’s Office for the fifth year in a row for the 3 days of Boknal (dog eating is traditionalized in Korea – Chobok 7/12, Jungbok 7/22, and Malbok 8/9 (Demonstration is on 8/9 Friday because Malbok 8/11 is on Sunday) in 2019) and EVERYONE IS INVITED. YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A MEMBER OF THE ANIMALS’ BATTALION. IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE KOREAN DOGS, PLEASE JOIN. They held 3 demonstrations in the previous four years at the same location and were covered by ABC network news in New York and also South Korea. The third day of 3 demonstrations in 2016 and 2017, they had a big breakthrough. Not only did Consulate General Ghee-Whan Kim in New York acknowledge them, but he also promised to deliver their message to the Korean government.

We are so grateful to the Animals’ Battalion volunteer activists who participated in previous years and a special thank you goes out to Noelia and Roberto, co-founders/organizers, of the group! You guys Rock! Thank you!
