Gyeongju, We require clarification of the claims on your response, with detailed plans and complete information.

Application No.: 1AA-2106-0183732
Application Date: 2021-06-05
Request to Gyeongju, South Korea, to take administrative action against illegal dog farms.
경주시에 불법 개농장 행정처분 시행을 촉구합니다.

👎🏼 Gyeongju continues to deceive us claiming that they “have confirmed that there are no illegal matters falling under Article 8 of the Animal Protection Act.” They are clearly failing to even inspect the countless dog farms operating in their city, which we have listed on our petition. We have received all kinds of responses from Korean city governments, but Gyeongju is one of the most inept and shows clear contempt towards our petition. Gyeongju is being neglectful of their legal responsibilities to their citizens and to the animals within their boundary.

    Regarding the way you in Korea treat animals reflects on what kind of people you are, and what kind of country you live in?
    Non violence leads to the highest ethnics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.

    Comments are useless if you don’t use e-people petitions. I mean I hope many people file these petitions because you can’t say :”stop this” if you don’t act ! Besides, it’s very easy to do ! Thank you for all you do !!!

    There is no government that will act on empathy, democratic governments or dictators. The only language they understand is money, i.e. GDP. Therefore do not buy South Korean products, in particular, their cars and electronics. Once productivity drops, there all ears as to why. Then they will respond.
