The Global Rally to End China’s Dog and Cat Meat Trade by the Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project
The Global Rally to End China’s Dog and Cat Meat Trade organized by the Duo Duo Animal Welfare Project was held in San Francisco’s Union Square on February 19, 2015 (Chinese New Year Day). The main theme of this event was “New Year, New Hope!”
We are honored to have been invited to participate in this important and historical event and to give a voice to the South Korean dogs in the meat trade.
We had a table to collect petition signatures and hand out our leaflets to visitors and supporters. We collected 54 signatures and had ten people sign our letters to the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon at the event. A couple of supporters also made donations to us in the amount total of $110. Thank you very much! We will send these donated funds to Korean activist/rescuers to be used for their campaign. I was one of the seven speakers at this event and this was my first speech ever but I think it went well.
