Sophie and two colleagues plus the activists were there negotiating with police at 3 am– to try and reason with them so they could feed and give water to these poor cats or possibly have them released.

Sophie will have to put in an official complaint to see that these cats are released – we are awaiting more updates as this rescue continues on.

We support everyone on the front line – Including The Shanghai Animal Protection Frontline Alliance activists. We will continue to update as information is sent to us from Sophie Ling and other contacts over in China.

STILL WAITING ON PROMISES THAT YULIN DOG MEAT SECTION WILL BE BANNED

Posted on Updated on

YULIN PARTY SECRETARY CALLS FOR A BAN IN THE  DOG  MEAT SECTION  OF THE FESTIVAL

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.
May is coming up fast upon us and we are preparing our world awareness event for the 18th of May, please if you can join us –  for our week May 18th world awareness your voice counts. Our friends from China will be protesting on the 17th.

No To Dog Meat: Diplomacy First

Posted on

Greetings and salutations,

On behalf of the No To Dog Meat and WPDCMT team. We would like to go over some issues that have been presented to us.

We realise that the subject regarding the dog and cat meat culture may be a place where it can be emotive and for feelings to run high, as well as being highly controversial. However, a strict decorum for diplomacy is always best suited to deal with this sensitive topic.

When we see or receive comments of threats and or racism we cannot condone or approve such comments and or speeches. We are here as a group of people from all over the world to bring awareness of the cruelty. We work together with other activists located in these areas that people tend to show hatred for.

We as a group and organization of diversity respect all cultures – it is just the cruelty toward humans and animals we cannot condone.

In truth blame should only be put upon those who do the acts, not the entirety of a country, for even a country of people have those fighting daily to end the cruelty. Blame should also be placed on our own countries animal abusers and government who enter into bilateral trade agreements without raising the issue of animal or human welfare.

To us – we see no colour of skin, there is only us as humans as one race, with a most powerful voice to make change, to better animal and human life.

With this being stated – we will not publicize or accept offensive comments such as racism or threats of harm. If such comments should be posted on our blog or pages they will be removed post haste.

So please, out of the respect for our team and the people fighting daily to change the way things are. Please keep everything to a civil formality.
