More than 100,000 Chinese Citizens Rally Together to Protest the Dog Meat TradeONEGREENPLANET.ORG: May 18, 2016
This June, China will hold its annual Yulin Meat Festival, a tradition in which participants eat dog meat and lychees to mark the summer solstice. As such, in an act of courage and compassion, Chinese citizens and activists have come together to protest this cruel festival and the dog meat industry that supports it. With an estimated 300 dogs killed every day in preparation for the festival, citizens have banded together to call for its end. The festival is all perfectly legal – it’s no secret why people are upset.
So in a strong act of opposition, animal rights activists gathered at a government-organized event, which was attended by more than 100,000 people.
This was the perfect opportunity to capture authorities’ attention to the fact that the public will not stand for this disgusting industry.
In a Facebook post, Humane Society International stayed hopeful, noting that, “Momentum keeps building to shut down the despicable dog meat trade in China.”Citizens proudly took the street, along with their four-legged friends, donning signs that read, “Legislate Animal Protection. Punish Dog Theft. Outlaw Dog Meat Trade!” Let’s join these activists in fighting to #StopYulin once and for all!
