WE URGE THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT TO STOP THE YULIN FESTIVAL OF EATING DOGS IN GUANGXI PROVNCE (JUNE 21-23)

Messages Sent So Far
To Whom It May Concern:

We the undersigned do formally oppose the forthcoming "Dog Meat Eating Festival" Yulin Guanxi China (21-23rd June) and support the opposition from Chinese activist Mrs Du Yufeng who has appealed in person to the Major of Yulin. We formally request you take action diplomatically or otherwise to stop this festival.

We formally ask you to urge the Chinese Government put into place Legislation to protect the welfare of Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade and stop turning a blind eye to this horrible tradition.

We respectfully let you know the 5 Rights of All Sentient beings adopted by the World's Farming Communities and International Animal Welfare Organizations:Freedom from Hunger and Thirst - by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour. Freedom from Discomfort - by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease - by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment. Freedom to Express Normal Behaviour - by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal's own kind. Freedom from Fear and Distress - by ensuring conditions and treatment, which avoid mental suffering.We remind you of trade of agreements in place, which include the provision of the same.

We will also let you know that at the Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness in July 2012, Eminent Scientist Stephen Hawking amongst others confirmed animals, especially those of a companion kind ( dogs and cats) have a high degree of consciousness and feel pain.

We appeal to Chinese clemency and respect the wish they certainly have to present a good image of China on an International touristic level. We inform you that an opposition has been lodged with the OIE. World Organization for Animal Health, Paris (of which China is a member) and the United Nations for Farm Animal Welfare as well as with our respective governments. The British Government has already written in opposition and we expect the American Government to follow suit, which I believe will.

We give you due notice that a peaceful yet determined presence will be maintained outside each and every one of the consulates and embassy's and Chinese Trading towns worldwide and that we have secured extensive international press coverage.

In summary. We respectfully remind you that deliberately torturing, beating, skinning and boiling alive dogs and cats at a public festival is not just unacceptable in this Millenium and that it Is time to set cultural difference aside on this issue and end what is universally deemed FOOD TORTURE CULTURE .

Dog and cat meat is an unclassified , unregulated source of food and the risk to health and disease of your fellow citizens is a real possibility.

I believe upon the follow facts above you will find it in the best interest of the United States Fellow Citizens to follow these actions. Thank you so much for your time and attention.

What is wrong with these sick people ? I am a vegetarian and proud of it . I am doing my part to help animals . It may be hard to be vegan , but not as hard as it is for the animals who have to be tortured to death . And what makes this especially evil is the fact that people enjoy hurting these dogs . The best I can wish for them is that they go to Hell at least in the afterlife if the government wont properly punish them now for it , as these people are sick and also hurt the people trying to rescue them . They are savages .

This is truly unacceptable and inhumane. Dogs are pets. Mans best friend not a piece of meat to eat. Dogs have more of a purpose then being eatten. China wake up! stop eatting these dogs and make them into your pets or helper dogs!
