After 3 years of NoToDogMeat campaigning on the streets against Yulin Festival some positive news. News has come in that Yulin pary secretary would like to ban the dog meat section of festival.
( Interview below)
Yulin party secretary, Li Jun Green Food and Drug Administration in the office has issued a statement to say.
“This year, if businesses hold the dog section, we will pass a resolution for it to be banned!” He has also applied for the Beijing dog business information disclosure and formally stated at a meeting with lawyers “I want the Yulin Dog Meat Festival banned” .
Secretary Li went on further to confirm the festival was in breach of the People’s Republic of China Food Safety Law.
It has been ten days and we are still waiting formal confirmation,As we all know passing a resolution and its implementation are two different things.However, if this resolution goes through it is a HUGE step to cracking down on the illegal dog meat to see a demise in the trade. Our charity has issued letters of thanks and requested embassy meetings to discuss this matter further.
An action plan of letters you can write will follow soon. We NEED to keep up the pressure.
