Although consumption of dogs and cats is technically illegal in South Korea, the Government doesn't enforce the law. In fact, they are trying to effectively legalize it by regulating dog meat sanitation, which amounts to endorsement of the torment and killing of millions of dogs and cats. The Government's stamp of approval is particularly indefensible given that the vast majority of Koreans find the consumption of dogs and cats disgusting, and are ashamed that the practice has not yet been banned in their country.
Demonstrations are being organized in the U.S., Canada, Korea, Ireland, Argentina and other countries. Visit http://idausa.org/campaigns/korea/index.html to see if a demonstration is being organized in your area.
If you cannot attend an event, write letters to the editor just before July 15th stating that protests are taking place around the world in a day of observance for Korean cats and dogs in opposition to their consumption. Also write to Korean Ambassador Hong Seok-Hyun urging enforcement of laws prohibiting dog and cat torture and slaughter.
