Mayor of Richmond, Virginia: Tell Sister City, Uijeongbu, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats!

Uijeongbu, South Korea became a Sister City with Richmond, Virgina in 1995, despite the fact that Uijeongbu, South Korea is responsible for a horrendous dog and cat meat cruelty.

Countless dog farms and slaughterhouses are scattered throughout Uijeongbu and they truly are hell on earth for the defenseless dogs suffering there. Man’s best friend exists for their entire lives in squalid, feces encrusted raised wire cages in utter misery only to be slaughtered in the most horrific of ways – by electrocution, a hammer blow to the neck, being hung or beaten, bleeding to death from a slashed throat, being burned to death from a blowtorch, or thrown into a vat of boiling water while still alive.

Update: Unjust verdict on the charges against Nami Kim

Sharing from Nami Kim and her team.

Nami Kim received a notice from the Incheon District Court this week, following a charge against her by the police, for defending herself when being physically attacked by the brother of a dog farmer at the Universe Dog Farm in Incheon(South Korea).

The court case which lasted over six months, and was aired on one of the three major television stations, resulted in a very disappointing verdict for Nami. Nami was not present in court when they issued a verdict for injuring the butcher’s brother and fined her 1,000,000 Korean Won (equivalent of US$900).

Seoul, South Korea – First Class City of Barbarity and Indifference!

Mayor Kirk Caldwell of Honolulu, Mayor Ed Lee of San Francisco and Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington DC: Tell Sister City, Seoul, South Korea, That We’re Opposed to the Torture and Consumption of Dogs and Cats.

Seoul became sister city with Honolulu in 1973, San Francisco in 1976, and Washington DC in 2006.  Yet Seoul, South Korea is responsible for the horrendous dog and cat meat trade.

If you have ever wondered what a hell would be like, just take a visit or watch the videos on Gyeongdong Market.  This place is a “Hell on Earth” with innocent man’s best friends in cages after cages waiting for the heartless customers to order them to be slaughtered on the spot by electrocution, hanging, beating,…and thrown into boiling water sometimes while they are still alive.  Dogs are being killed in full view of other dogs terrified in cages, in public and in broad daylight. Based on a recent news article (South Korea’s dog meat clash http://english.hani.co.kr/arti/english_edition/e_national/542514.html), there are 8 slaughterhouses around Cheongnyangri residential area near Gyeongdong market alone. There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption yet these laws are blatantly ignored.  No matter where you live, please click HERE to take action.
