  • Pyeongchang’s project to hide the Dog Meat Restaurants from Olympic visitors! (In Chinese)

    Click HERE to read in English. 平昌計劃隱藏狗肉餐廳,不讓奧運遊客知道! 點擊 這裡 看電視新聞關於平昌政府的項目改變“狗肉湯”餐廳招牌。(韓語) 平昌2018冬季奧運會還有不足一年的時間就開幕。在我們的“抵制平昌2018行動中心”,“Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Action Center” 有一列你可以採取的行動,抗議南韓可怕及殘酷的貓狗肉販賣行業。 以下是一段翻譯關於韓國動物權益倡導者Korea Animal Rights Advocates’ (KARA) 評論平昌的計劃躲避對韓國殘酷販賣狗肉的批評。 點擊 這裡來看KARA的評論。 [評論]我們考究平昌郡的狗肉餐館在2018年冬季奧運會前改變招牌的局限性和顯著性。 江原省目前正在準備歡迎奧運遊客參加將於2018年2月舉行的冬季奧運會。為了緩解住宿和餐館的短缺,並為農業家庭創造收入,將向酒店業提供支持,以加強服務的精神,以及連接當地農業社區的網絡,以介紹韓國的文化給遊客。此外,某些可能引起外國遊客負面情緒的餐館將進行裝修,包括新的標牌,為了掩蓋受爭議的根原,避免辯論。 什麼原因會導致冬季奧運遊客有負面情緒?江原道省的18家狗肉餐館在平昌和江陵附近。政府將為每家餐館提供高達10,000,000韓元的補貼,以改變其標牌(3,000,000)和翻新其設施(7,000,000)。這個項目的50%費用將由省支付,50%由城市支付。 在任何重大國際活動之前,對韓國的Boshintang(狗肉湯),狗肉業同 虐待狗的抗議和抵制是常見的。然而,政府通常採取停滯措施,例如取下標牌,而不是解決狗肉業本身的問題。儘管“動物保護法”是公眾在1988年首爾奧運期間抗議狗肉業殘酷行為的成果,政府在此後30年內未能取得任何進展。 雖然目前只是18家餐館有問題,刪除讀為“Boshintang, Sacheoltang, Yeongyangtang, Yeongyangwon”且可能引起厭惡的牌子是重要的,以及翻新窗戶,出入口道路和牆壁,刪除與狗肉相關的詞語和短語也是同樣重要。我們不認為,對這些企業提供700萬韓元的財政支持是完全不合適的。 然而,這個項目不能解決問題的根源,因此嚴格來說,這只是一種形式。只是取下18間狗肉湯店的標牌是很難避免對販賣狗肉的譴責。同樣難以避免對移除標牌只是表演的批評。 政府使用奇怪的名字命名這個項目,“從外國人引起負面情緒的餐館”也是一個問題。雖然反對狗肉的消費在我們國家變得更有聲望,懲罰屠殺狗的動物保護法修正案仍在進行,因為殘殺動物是狗肉貿易的一部分,項目標題導致人們錯誤地相信這個問題只是韓國人與外國人之間的異議。 此外,江原道省政府允許這18家餐館在奧運會期間繼續正常營運,儘管他們的標牌被刪除,當奧運會閉幕時,將會放回標牌,表明他們尊重這些狗肉餐館的要求。 此外,江原道政府還沒有公佈任何計劃誘使狗肉餐館獲得700萬韓元的財政補貼,用於設施翻新,以在奧運會期間或之後改變他們的商業模式。 對狗肉湯的需求正在下降,而接受以狗作為伴侶動物的正在增加。 無論為即將舉行的國際活動的客人準備什麼,韓國社會現在必須開始討論結束狗肉消費,這是大規模虐待動物的同義詞。 江原道政府必須使用這個標牌移除計劃作為提高韓國國際地位的機會,並消除世界對我們的弱小動物福利標準的關注,例如狗肉貿易和狗肉消費成為國家的標籤。 不幸的是,目前,江原道的策略與在沙灘上建房子一樣無效!
