Irvine City does it again – immediate response sent to Seoul’s Nowon District
We have just received a response to our campaign/petition, shown below, from the City of Irvine – and once again they didn’t let us down. We are very grateful to Mayor Choi and all of Irvine City Council, and its staff, for taking such immediate action to help the Korean dogs in the meat trade, and for being their voice! We are pleased to say that this is our 6th victory, even though we don’t yet know how Seoul’s Nowon District will respond. And, we are sure that, as a result of our campaigns, there are many more cities/states contacting their counterparts in Korea to address this issue, even though they have chosen not to respond to us. These Sister City campaigns, that put a spotlight on the Korean Government’s shameful indifference, are effective and therefore very important. So please keep up the great work and stay with us as we take on each one of the 162 such relationships, one by one. It could take many years to cover them all but we will not stop until Korea ends this brutality.

Suggested message to the Mayor and the City Council of Irvine
Dear Mayor Steven S. Choi and the City Council members:
Once again I would like to thank you and the City Council of Irvine for responding to our concerns raised, via the recent petition on Change.org, about the mistreatment, torture and consumption of companion animals in Irvine’s Friendship City, the Nowon District of Seoul.
Both domestic and international pressure on this issue is required if we are going to incite some real change in South Korea, so I kindly urge you to continue reaching out to your Friendship City until affirmative action is taken, by the Nowon District, to end the horrific practice of the dog-meat trade for good.
Thank you again for your efforts here.
