The Animals' Battalion invites you to join the first S.Korean …

We are so ready! Please make an effort to come. It is a very important demo since it is the first day of the Boknal Dog Meat Festival and the S. Korean media has been paying attention to the New York demos since last year.

In addition to the 1000 flyers, signs, banners, t-shirts, petitions to sign and visors. This time we will have a TV showing videos of the cruelty involved in the Boknal festival. It will be a great tool for those who deny that this is still happening in South Korea. Thanks to Stop the Dog and Cat Consumption in S. Korea (koreandogs.org) and Nami Kim for their support.

Hope to see you all this Friday.

Animals’ Battalion will be holding a series of demonstrations, once again, in New York City, outside the South Korean Consulate, to make that Government aware of how strongly we abhor their indifference to the mass cruelty and suffering inflicted on sentient animals, within the dog and cat meat trades; and also of the failure of that Government to bring about an end to these evil trades.

In mutual support with Animals’ Battalion, and KoreanDogs.org, no matter where you are in the world, we really hope that you can show your support and make your feelings known, by joining us to be part of ‘one voice’: we are asking you to take part in a telephone and mail ‘blitz’ at the same time as these demonstrations are being held, to back them up by getting your own message across to the South Korean Embassy within your country; details of which you can find here: https://koreandogs.org/what-you-can-do/contacts-for-protest/call-south-korean-embassy/ You can also find any updated information HERE.

  • For written protests:
    Subject: The South Korean Dog and Cat Meat Trades

    Dear Sir, or Madam,

    I am contacting you today, as I wish to register my strongest protest to the indifference you, your countrymen and your government show to the suffering and cruelty that is carried out, by many people, within the dog and cat meat trades.

    This cruelty and suffering must end, and I cannot see it ending until your country puts a complete stop to these aberrant trades – trades which have no place in any modern day society.

    South Korea is a country that boasts a wealth of high-profile companies, with a 14th GDP rating; and if it still wishes to be seen as a modern, forward-thinking, civilized society, then your government must rethink its policy on allowing these unregulated, unjustifiable trades to continue.

    I sincerely implore your government to immediately begin policing and enforcing your animal protection laws; and, until it brings about the end to both the dog and cat meat trades, I will boycott all forms of tourism, all products, and all services from your country; and I will urge others to do the same.”

  • For telephone protests:

    We recommend that the best way forward, when calling an Embassy, is to politely ask to speak to a representative who has the authority to talk about the dog and cat meat trades within South Korea. The representative may well deny all knowledge of any illegality/wrong doing within these trades, or say that they are unable to help on this issue. If they are not forthcoming, then you might make the following statement or similar wording of your own – and please ask them to keep a record of your call and what you have said.

    “As an animal lover, and part of a high-profile animal rights group, which has supporters across the globe, I wish to register my deep concern about the unregulated, cruel and abusive dog and cat meat trades with your country, South Korea.

    I sincerely ask that your government immediately begins policing and enforcing your animal protection laws; and until it brings about a permanent end to both the dog and cat meat trades, I will boycott all forms of tourism, all products, and all services from South Korea; and I will urge others to do the same.”

    It’s beyond cruel, it’s heartless. Would you want to be in a dirty filthy cage, waiting to be Beaten anyway possible? Just for someone to eat you. No compassion. If you don’t have compassion for an animals life, it shows what type of person you are. Grow up, tell your embassy to produce more jobs, to make money the legal way. Not by killing defenseless animals.

      Agreed. No one should be able to stand up for dogs, while maintaining the disgusting lifestyle if consuming equally sentient animals such as cows, pigs, or chickens.

        Are you saying that only vegans can oppose dog/animal torture? I say that even if a cannibal wants to do one good thing in this world – LET THEM. EVERYONE must oppose torture. EVERYONE!!

          There are many forms of cruelty that need to be stopped but that is a separate issue. Everybody needs to stand up for these animals no matter race, religion, country or meat eater. These animals are skinned and boiled ALIVE…anyone who speaks out against it is playing their own small part in stopping it.

    animals are not food. although many don’t agree with me, this is what i believe.
    the idea that our precious cats and dogs are now included in korea’s ‘diet’ is obscene, shameful and heart-breaking.
    i am doing all that i can with many others to end this insane practice.
