TAKE ACTION! Abolish The Brutal Pig Festival At Nem Thuong Village, Vietnam!


Animals  (tags: Animal Welfare, Extreme Animal Cruelty, Pig Slaughter Ritual in Hanoi, Stop the Lunar New Year Pig Slaughter in, URGENT ACTION! )

This Vietnamese "festival" makes even non-animal lovers cringe. Every year at a village near Hanoi Vietnam a pig is brutally chopped in two so that people can smear banknotes with its blood in the belief that it will bring luck. Demand it be stopped!

If they want luck, smear their own blood on the money. Maybe they will get lucky and not suffer like the poor pig would!
