 Thunderclap – “Boycott PyeongChang 2018 Campaign”!
Rebuild ‘trust’ by removing the ‘obstacles’ of the dog meat trades.
Make this a priority Agenda Item for the upcoming
​World Congress for Korean Politics and Society.

The World Congress for Korean Politics and Society is being held on June 22-24, in Seoul, South Korea. The main aim of this conference is to discuss the rebuilding of trust across South Korea, and the international community, as the Conference objective notes that there are rampant “signs of mistrust in peace and democracy” in political and civic life and that this poses “serious obstacles to political stability, economic justice, and social integration”.

Surely, then, the issue of the dog and cat meat trades, its inherent cruelty and abuse of the animals involved, the growing discontent of South Korean nationals – in addition to the strong movement of campaigners across the globe – to put a permanent end to these aberrant trades, must be foremost in the Conference’s considered aim “of addressing their stated concerns” and finding “innovative ways” of overcoming “problems of trust in Korea”.

We must use the opportunity of this biennially-held Conference to urge attendees to consider, discuss and find their way to supporting the abolition of the dog and cat meat trades, for the good of the democracy and the enhancement of peace within South Korea.
