To the Sponsors of PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea:
Please withdraw your sponsorship of PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea!
Bishop Desmond Tutu said, “If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
As sponsors of the Olympics, you have the power to influence the S. Korean government to end the horrific cruelty that is perpetrated against innocent dogs and cats of South Korea.
Two and a half million South Korean dogs are electrocuted, hanged, or beaten to death each year. They are killed in the cruelest ways imaginable, because many South Koreans believe the insidious myth that the more an animal suffers, the tastier the meat and that the medical properties will be enhanced. Thousands of cats are also slaughtered for soups and so-called “health” tonics. They are thrown into boiling water while still alive.
The practice of eating dogs is not widely accepted in South Korea. It gained popularity after the South Korean War. The practice continues to thrive with the aid of greedy restaurateurs, meat dealers, and butchers.
Over the last decade, many in South Korea have embraced the notion of dogs and cats as animal companions. But we must take action to persuade the South Korean government to legalize a ban on dog and cat meat and forever stop this technically illegal, corrupt, and sordid industry.
It is appalling that dogs and cats should be kept in filthy crates, forced to watch their cage mates being tortured and slaughtered. Eyewitnesses have reported dogs being literally torn apart while still alive, their tormentors saying that the more prolonged the torment of death, the better the taste. This attitude toward any living being is at best unforgivable.
The 2012 Olympics showed us how the world can unite together with a collective spirit of community that transcends economics and political strife. Every nation even the smallest, without resources had a chance to showcase their talent. They were neither sidelined nor marginalized. Volunteers came together and everyone was given an equal chance to shine. The world knows how important it is to stand up for the voiceless to show understanding and compassion to all our fellow men and living creatures. Doing the right thing earns respect and this in turn builds business. It is time for brand leaders such as you to carry this torch of change. Please respect your customers. Do not endorse a nation that endorses and promotes oppression and unspeakable cruelty. Insist this practice ends now and until it does withdraw your sponsorship.
Respectfully,

signed of course - Thanks Rosemary

I boycott watching any olympic games. It's only commercial, doping betrayal and greedy business and has nothing more to do with the original olympic spirit - and also too many countries use it as an alibi to cruelly kill stray animals!

The Olympics are 99% national snobbery and only 1% sports. The more I learn about the Olym-prick games, the more I realize just how corrupt they are. Atlanta got the 1996 games thanks to bribery, and judges are often venal. At least, that is the impression I get. Besides, the cities that host them often do horrible things to the poor, shoving them out of the way or rounding them up like criminals.
