Attention New York Area Activists!
Please Join The Animals’ Battalion
​for the Final 2017 ‘Boknal’ Demonstration in New York

These photos are of the ‘Boknal’ demonstrations, organized by The Animals’ Battalion, at the Korean Consulate Generals Office in New York. The first photo is from the day 2 of this year’s demonstration while the second photo shows day 2 of the demonstration last year. Can you tell the difference in the attendance? It’s noticeably smaller this year, which is very sad as the demonstration should be bigger this year, not smaller.

New York area activists, please stand up and speak out on behalf of the Korean animals in the dog and cat meat trade! If you don’t speak out, who will??

Day 3 of this year’s demonstration will be on Friday, August 11, from 3 – 6 pm. Please note the time has been changed in an effort to reach Consulate General Gheewhan Kim who has not acknowledged us yet. Click HERE for more information about the event.

Where: Consulate General of the Republic of Korea
460 Park Ave, 57th Street, New York, NY 10022

Time: 3 pm – 6 pm
(Consulate Hours: Open • 9 am – 12 pm, 1:30 pm – 4 pm)

Those of you not in New York can still help out and add your voice by picking up the phone and making a call. Please give your 2 minutes. It could save a life.

Posters and brochures will be provided but homemade posters, props and other materials are encouraged! We also have petitions to be signed and sent to the Ambassador of South Korea.  

Free t-shirts for the volunteers (while supplies last).
