Subject: URGENT 7 DAYS---WE URGE THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT TO STOP THE YULIN FESTIVAL OF EATING DOGS IN GUANGXI PROVNCE (JUNE 21-23)

It is widely believed that dog meat can boost men’s sexual performance - as it has been used in traditional Chinese medicine to treat impotence.

SUBJECT: Stop The Yulin Dog Meat Festival

SAMPLE LETTER:

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.
to put into place Legislation to protect the welfare of Dogs and Cats in the Meat Trade.
We respectfully remind you of 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 remind you 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 your clemency and respect the wish you 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.
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.

BEIJING dog cull on-going!
-- they're going all out to get the dogs, NOT THE CRIMINALS, because dogs don't fight back!
They even took the old dog in the pic ignoring the elderly owner's begging for mercy!!!! And this dog has ID card, too!!!
They don't go and stop the Yulin dog meat festival, they don't go and arrest any of those bastard scumbags, instead they put ALL their efforts on the innocent owner and their dogs!
Once the dogs got taken, they'll be sent to PRISON where the condition is hell! If the owners don't bring lots of money and begging to save their dogs, those dogs will very likely end up on dinner tables..
