Write to the Association of International Olympic Winter Sports Federations urging the Boycott of PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic in South Korea, A Dog Eating Nation!
Dear members of the International Winter Olympic Sports Organizations,
We ask you to please watch this video: http://youtu.be/3uR8R8Mu70Q
South Korea is not a poor country; it has the world’s 14th largest economy and is home to global brands such as Samsung and Hyundai. However, an estimated 2.5 million dogs and thousands of cats are slaughtered and eaten each year in South Korea – but not before being subjected to unending inhumane and downright cruel conditions: barren, raised, all-wire cages, offering no protection from extreme weather. They are given no water or medical care. They get no exercise and often have their eardrums burst to deter barking.
Koreans actually believe that the more pain and suffering an animal endures the more beneficial the meat product will be to virility or health: so they hang the animals, electrocute them, boil them alive or burn them to death. South Korea is the only country known to have large, intensive farming systems to supply the demand for dog meat – in addition, 20% of the meat dogs are imported from China.
The Korean Government does nothing to end these profit-driven, tax-free, unregulated trades, which peak at the Boknal so-called ‘festival’.
These shameful trades must be stopped – the South Korean Government must take action to ban dog and cat-meat consumption, and until they do I will boycott all sporting events hosted in South Korea and all South Korean businesses.
Preparations for the PyeongChang 2018 Olympics are under way, and you and your team members also may be preparing to take part in these games – if so, we sincerely ask you to consider whether you would be willing to speak out against this cruelty, or even to stand with us and boycott these events altogether, in the name of compassion and right.
[Your name, City, Country]
