This is one Vietnamese festival that makes even non animal lovers cringe. Every year, at a village near Hanoi, a pig is brutally chopped into two so that people can smear banknotes with its blood in the belief that it would bring luck. SIGNED PLEASE!!

Please Make it flow between their groups of friends. The Vietnamese government has already received four times the petition to stop this monstrosity and has done nothing. We need to force them by the number of signatures. Thank you all ..

Please let us help stop this monstrosity missing thousands of signatures. Nobody is going to listen and less to the President of Vietnam who has already has sent several requests and monstrous Festival continues. Pass it to their groups of friends to all sign. Here is the link to sign in too Avaaz. and so are several organizations that require them to weight the abolition of this mélefico festival.

Aquí les dejo el link prometido para que sumemos organizaciones pidiendo abolir esta monstruosidad.
Por favor firmen uno y otro. El propio peso de las organizaciones es lo que podrá hacer la diferencia.

This really is at the bottom of the cess-pit of depravity and brutality. But what else can you expect from a nation that thinks NOTHING of boiling cats and dogs alive, a nation that seems to thrive on cruelty and abuse towards ALL its animals. The masses must really be brain-dead if they actually believe that in participating in this atrocity will bring them wealth and prosterity. Shame on all.

So why not use porcine blood from a humane slaughterhouse instead of this stupid stuff? Edible animals should still not be abused. Make a clean kill and make food from the meat, save the blood for ceremonies, firefighting foam, and fertiliser.

I am truly sick of people and their ritualistic barbarity. Always animals are the victims of the savagery. If they feel the need for slicing a living creature in half, then one of them should volunteer their services. The poor pig has no choice - always the case where humans and animals are involved. The world would be a better place without many of the people who inhabit it. Every day some sick perverted freak is torturing an animal somewhere - in a lab, a slaughter house, a canned hunt, a 'cultural necessity' and a whole host of other situations that only humans could devise.

Signed -actually they are just letting the world know they are still not- educated or- civilised and still living in the past with all it's superstitious mumbo jumbo-how can the cruel brutal death of a poor pig change the luck of a nation of people? if it goes ahead I hope it brings them the luck they deserve --karma.

I come from the South of Vietnam and this festival fills me with shame. But the northern vietnamese people are very different. They are barbarian and i think it is all about education. As Valda P. has stated, they are correct. It makes me feel so ashamed and I can't help but wondering how they can enjoy such violence.

Dear Maggie May I know how you feel I also feel so much shame for the way people who have had opportunity for an education but ignorance prevails in the UK Some are behaving no better even humans are getting hurt over the death of one of our leaders many will end up with police records All over an 87 year old woman who led us for many years and whom many loved also the hurt they are causing her family as you say Karma
Let the dead rest
I could not watch the pig video but I also had to change channels on my TV tonight when i saw barbarians
out of control most were not even born when this women was a leader just an excuse for violence
YES Quinton your comment is correct humans doing what humans do best creating violence one way or another Karma
Green star on the way Maggie and Quinton

Thank you marietc. You have helped me to feel less shame. I understand that the eyes of the world are mocking the UK at this time over the moron behaviour. Yes, human will be human. One way or another. Thank you for our clarifying even when though we are from different parts of the world. We all have our shame.
Love and peace through out the world for human and animals.
