Barcelona Ciudad Amiga de Gwangju, Corea del Sur
 
Estimada Señora Alcaldesa de Barcelona y miembros del Concejo Municipal,
 
Respetuosamente pedimos que tenga a bien observar estos videos correspondientes al comercio de carne de perro en Corea del Sur:
 
 
¿ Considera Usted que Barcelona debería ser Ciudad Amiga de cualquier otra que permita torturar y comer perros y gatos?
 
Por favor, inste al alcalde de Gwangju, Jang-Hyun Yoon, a que ponga fin a las granjas ilegales de perro, y a los mataderos, mercados, transportes y restaurantes que utilicen productos de aquel origen.
Está en curso una petición en línea solicitando su apoyo para terminar con la crueldad inherente a la industria de carnes de perro y gato en Corea del Sur:
 
 
Se solicita el favor de su respuesta.
 
Muchas gracias,

Dear Mayor Colau,
dear City Council members,
 
Gwangju, S. Korea, became Friendship city with Barcelona in 2011.
 
The horrific dog-meat trade and consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law –  the laws are simply not enforced!
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress under deliberate torture.
 
We ask you to please watch the videos of South Korea’s dog meat industry:
 
 
These poor creatures cannot speak for themselves which is why I am writing on their behalf.
 
I believe that your city wishes to be made aware of this ongoing issue as well, and not want to be affiliated with a city where illegal and immoral torture is being carried out on any animal, and particularly not on those that are loyal, trusting and sentient creatures, which look up to us humans as being their guardians.
 
These illegal trades are still being allowed to continue by S. Korean authorities – even though there is a large growing opposition from pet owners across South Korea, and throughout the world.
 
So, I am asking you to please speak with your counterparts in Gwangju, especially Mayor Jang-Hyun Yoon, to urge them to enforce their own laws, not ignore them, and to show compassion towards their companion animals, and respect to their own citizens, by bringing these brutal trades finally to an end!
 
With the Winter Olympics coming up in 2018, this is the time to make change; this is the time to stop the illegal, inhumane and unnecessary cruelty.
 
I know that South Korea has many beautiful, admirable and noble practices and customs worth preserving, but this is not one of them.
 
Thank you for your time and understanding.
Please let me know how you feel about this so often concealed subject, thank you.
 

Sincerely:

Auckland, New Zealand, Friendship City with Pohang, South Korea
