South Korea to stop the dog meat trade!
[UPDATE] The Los Angeles City Council will be voting on the Dog Meat Resolution on Wednesday, July 3. The City Council meeting begins at 10 AM. This item is number 46 on the agenda. We are calling on all the supporters in the Los Angeles area to attend this meeting to express their support in 1 minute. Click HERE to see the agenda.
Mr. Jeffrey Mausner (Valley Alliance of Neighborhood Councils Liaison to the Los Angeles Animal Services Department) has reported on June 17, 2019:
“On June 5, a resolution was introduced in the Los Angeles City Council, asking the governments of China, Vietnam, South Korea, Cambodia, and Indonesia to ban the sale of dog meat and to enforce their animal cruelty laws. The resolution was introduced by Councilmember Bob Blumenfield, a very strong advocate for animal welfare, and seconded by Councilmember David Ryu, one of the most influential Korean American office holders in the country.”
He also mentioned South Korea’s “very close ties to Los Angeles” and the Los Angeles sister city – Busan. We have campaigned to urge Los Angeles to speak out against the cruelty of its sister city and other friendship cities in Korea. Click HERE to see our campaigns.
Let’s help pass this resolution by expressing our support!
