Protest Against South Korea Dog Meat Trade On July 17th In Los Angeles, Washington And Seoul, South Korea
Last Chance for Animals (LCA) and sister organization in S. Korea, Animal Liberation Wave (ALW), will lead hundreds of protesters in three simultaneous demonstrations in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and Seoul, South Korea to draw attention to the inhumane slaughter of approximately one million dogs annually in the Korean dog meat trade.
The protests directed toward the Korean government, will be held on Bok Nal, the first of 3 nonconsecutive days marking the hottest days of the Korean summer. Consumption of dog meat soup known as “Boshintang” rises exponentially during the summer to combat the extreme heat.
WHEN/WHERE: Three simultaneous protests will be held on Tuesday, July 17, 2018:
Time: 10:30am – 1pm 9 (PDT)
Time: 10am – 1pm (EDT)
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA
Time: 12:30pm – 4 pm (UTC 09)
BACKGROUND: South Korea is the only country that systematically breeds and raises dogs specifically for human consumption. Known as “shit dogs,” they are purposely tortured then killed as it is believed the more torture the dog endures, the more flavorful the meat.
