Progressive mayor takes momentous ‘step’ for the dogs of Bucheon – Nami Kim’s meeting with Bucheon Mayor Man-Soo Kim
With the many Sister City Campaigns that we have worked on, so far the Mayor of Bucheon is the first, and only, Mayor who has extended his willingness to bring change. Mayor Man-Soo Kim of Bucheon has sat down with Nami Kim to discuss what can be done to help bring an end to the dog meat trade. In the video, he talks about the idea of arranging a locally-held, public/citizen debate on the dog meat issue, in the hopes of building a consensus about this very controversial issue as a stepping stone to further change and action. Nami is volunteering to participate in the debate. Mayor Kim is against dog meat consumption but the issue is not an easy one to tackle realistically, so he is trying to work out the best ways to achieve this.

Below is from Nami’s post:
After the re-enforcement of the Animal Protection Law Bill, passed in the City last month, a further step was taken for Bucheon to be dog friendly: a city without dog meat. Today we met with the Mayor of the City, Kim, Man Soo, and spent hours discussing what can be done to make this a “dog meat free city”, and how we can approach the citizens who are against the idea. The Mayor himself is an animal lover, and a very active and respected newly elected Mayor.
I submitted a proposal; and we now have plans, both for the short and long term, to work together this year and next year.
Mayor Kim is the man who can turn the city into a compassionate movement “dog meat free city”.
This is the Mayor’s office address if you would like to send him a “thank you” card.
Mayor Kim Man-Soo
