Thanks to all the wonderful, caring people who were in Sydney Hyde Park for the NoToDogMeat Rally yesterday! It is so great to see the movement to end the dog meat trade growing day by day everywhere. Debra says “Thank you to everyone that supported such a worthy cause, we will continue to raise awareness and grow in numbers until this terrible trade ends We must keep protesting and shouting to gain as much attention for our cause and not give up!”
Animal Friends Manado Indonesia marched on 24th July 2015 to say NoToDogMeat in advance of Indonesian Thanksgiving Day, 26th July, yesterday. Although dog meat is eaten all year round in Indonesia it is particularly eaten on this day. AFMI are extremely dedicated and protest EVERY month in local town Tondano where many of them live and also in nearby Tomohon (the Daily Mail ran an article on Tomohon market last year http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2569111/Held-tiny-cages-animals-await-fate-alongside-remains-dogs-rats-monkeys-creatures-flame-roasted-WHOLE-Indonesian-market.html ) but this month to mark Thanksgiving Day they marched from Koni Sario to God Bless Park in the city of Manado the capital city of North Sulawesi. They are very passionate indeed about the tragedy of the dog meat trade and for AFMI Thanksgiving day is a day of grief and not celebration.
On the placards ‘RW’ stands for Rintek Wuuk which is the Indonesian name for dog meat. They are determined to never give up !!
