BAN YULIN FESTIVAL : Open letter to Yulin Govenor Chen Wu & People's Republic of China

Dear Mr. Chen Wu, Yulin Govenor, and People's Republic of China:


We as the people of the world, are writing to you to request that you use your political influence and power to cancel what is known as the horrific “Dog Meat Eating Festival” that takes place every year on June 21 in Yulin – a festival that has not only brought upon the outrage of many, but also the deaths of innocent lives by the thousands, and the inhumanity that goes along with it.

   Due to this festival, your country’s reputation has been stained and tainted, and slowly the flame of respect is being dimmed – for the people of the world are saddened and angered that such inhumanity and an event such as this is being permitted, and believe that there is absolutely no place for such cruelty & slaughter in modern civilized society. It is time now that we join united to put an end to this barbaric “festival of death and cruelty” and save the innocent.

     You must understand that such an event not only brings suffering and death to innocent animals, but it can also bring upon sickness and death of the people as well – considering that, according to research, China has the second largest number of rabies cases in the world (338 cases reported in Yulin between 2002-2006) and due to this fact, think of the annual economic costs, and the toll it is taking upon the health of your residents.

      But it is not just rabies that is an issue, but other illnesses as well – with these innocent lives being transported in crammed cages, cruelly treated, and with compromised immune systems – it is leaving many vulnerable to other sicknesses, which is showing in the eyes of many the lack of care & compassion towards the lives and health of the people and animals by allowing the dog meat festival to continue.

     This negligence on the Government’s part (public health, disease prevention etc) is also bringing upon violence, in the society that you are trying to build as respectful and caring – and it is not just the barbaric cruelty and abuse that these poor dogs endure due to some inhumane people, but also between civilians and those involved – for some pets are stolen or watch dogs for families etc, and therefore many pet owners are retaliating & fighting against this trade of disgrace in a violent manner, and with permitting this festival you are promoting dog theft and also encouraging violence – and it will continue to escalate and intensify until something is done immediately.

     The Yulin Dog Meat Eating Festival is nothing more than an inhumane and cruel crime against nature, that is unsafe, torturous, and excused as “tradition” or “custom” – and that the abusive and sick acts are educating your future generations – and so I ask, is this how you want your country to be observed? To grow into?

    You as the Government cannot keep ignoring this issue, or permit it to escalate and destroy your society any longer. It is time to rejuvenate and glorify the Chinese culture, by abolishing this issue that is damaging your reputation and tainting your society with the blood and inhumanity. You can no longer allow this disgrace to cause any more negative consequences on commerce and on your tourism industry – it is time to RAISE UR PAW and help save innocent lives, and do your duty to ban this festival and make a mark that your society and the world will be proud of.

Be a voice for the voiceless, and end the dog meat festival – be a positive inspiration for your future, and make the right choice.

Thank You

  8. STOP! THOSE ARE INNOCENT LOVING DOGS. THEY DO NOT DESERVE SUCH ILL FATE.
    1) IF you will continue to kill them, bad luck will happen to you. Remember that whatever you do to others, it will come back to you twice! Remember, ALL bad deeds get punished. It might not be you but it can be one of your family member.
    2) This is not a festival you are doing, YOU ARE DOING A MASSACRE!
    3)Those Poor Innocent Dogs once belonged to a family. They deserve a loving home not that kind of treatment.

    HOPING FOR A MIRACLE. SAVE THOSE DOGS

  14. Cats and dogs are seeing, feeling, compassionate companion animals, NOT FOOD! Please stop this insane abuse and torture of animals that should be loved and cared for, not tortured and eaten. Bring yourselves into the 21st century and stop these barbaric practices!

  16. Dogs and cats assist humans in numerous ways including rescuing people in natural disasters such as when China had its devastating earthquake. They assist the sick, the blind, the depressed, the lonely people. But above all, cats and dogs are living breathing feeling emotional beings who feel every bit of pain and suffering as humans do. So when you skin or boil dogs or cats alive or beat them to death, they feel every bit of that act excruciatingly which would make any decent human being scream in the worst haunting screams just like these dogs and cats do! So please who that leadership in reforming your country is serious and stop all animals being part of the Yulin festival this year and forever and pass legations to make this abhorrence illegal on any day!
