Last summer, KARA and KAWA shouted going through Chilseong Market in Daegu along with the Daegu Animal Protection Alliance and fellow groups and citizens.
While the rally was passing by Chilseong Market, many citizens and activists were devastated to see dogs displayed alive in the open air in front of the
Boshintang(dog meat soup) restaurants. In memory of the slaughtered dogs at the Chilseong Dog Market, we held chrysanthemums in one hand and pickets in the other.
The rally started from Chilseong Market, all the way through downtown Daegu and ended in front of Daegu City Hall. To the citizens of Daegu, to the mayor of Daegu, we shouted out our slogans with all our heart. “End the dog meat industry! Shut down the slaughterhouses!”
Summer of 2020, Daegu has not changed.
We are going back to Daegu. Starting with a press conference in front of Daegu City Hall on July 6, one-man relay protests will be held from July 6 to August 14 to urge the shutdown of Daegu Chilseong ‘Dog Meat’ Market.
🔸 Press conference: July 6th 11:30 a.m. in front of Daegu City Hall
🔸 One-man Relay Protests: July 6 to August 14 in front of Daegu City Hall
Currently in Daegu, buses with advertisements calling for the shutdown of the Chilseong ‘dog meat’ market is running. Thanks to all the support of the citizens. 🚌
Among the three largest ‘dog meat’ markets in the country, Moran Market and Gupo Market have stopped slaughtering dogs. Daegu is now South Korea’s last city with a large ‘dog meat’ market. The mayor of Daegu must answer the citizens’ cries this time!
In the summer of 2020, please give us a lot of encouragement and support if you meet the ‘end the dog meat’ bus running through Daegu and the activists in front of Daegu City Hall!🙌
