Partnership Campaign – Samsung Electronics – ASML

ASML: Please tell your Partner, Samsung Electronics and South Korea, that you oppose the torture, killing, and consumption of dogs and cats.

If you want to help fight the grisly South Korean dog and cat meat trade and make a difference in South Korea, here are a few quick actions you can take that could save millions of dogs and cats each year.

CNBC News reported on 12/13/2023 that “Dutch manufacturer of chip-making equipment ASML will jointly invest 1 trillion South Korean won ($760 million) with South Korean chipmaker Samsung Electronics to build a plant that develops cutting-edge semiconductor processing technology in South Korea. The announcement came as South Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol is in the Netherlands for a four-day visit which seeks to forge a “semiconductor alliance” between the two countries.”

President Yoon Suk-yeol, Executive chairman of Samsung Electronics Lee Jae-yong, visited the headquarters of ASML. 12/12/2023. Office of the President, South Korea.

A Search Engine reveals the sickening scale of South Korea’s dog meat demand.

Two searches on Naver (the most popular search engine in Korea) – one was for so-called “Health Centers,” which commonly sell dog elixirs and cat elixirs (also known as dog soju and cat soju), and the second one was for “dog meat restaurants” – resulted in thousands of Health Centers and dog meat restaurants in South Korea.

Even if half of these ‘Health’ Centers and restaurants serve dog and cat ‘ingredients’ in one form or another, imagine how many dog/cat slaughterhouses must be in South Korea to supply these outlets.

There are laws in South Korea against selling dogs and cats for consumption, yet these laws are blatantly ignored.

    Hello, I’m calling to speak to someone in the CEO’s Office to ask for their help on an important issue regarding your plan to invest with Samsung Electronics in South Korea.

    If I could explain, dog meat consumption is currently practiced in that country, even though it is illegal under South Korean Law – but the laws are not enforced. The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress. I am calling today because they cannot speak for themselves. And, I believe that your company would wish to be made aware of this issue, as you would not want to affiliate with a nation where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on ones that are loyal, trusting creatures, which look up to us humans as their guardians.

    This illegal industry is being allowed to continue by South Korean authorities – even though there is growing opposition from pet guardians across South Korea and worldwide.

    So, I am asking you to please urge your counterparts at Samsung Electronics to speak out against dog and cat meat cruelty. Also, urge South Korean government to enforce their laws, not ignore them, show compassion to their companion animals, and respect their citizens by bringing this cruel industry to an end.

    I know South Korea has many beautiful, admirable, and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.

    Thank you for your time and understanding.
