Required action

Shut down the Yulin dog meat festival

The petition

We the undersigned are calling on your government to put an end to the horrific Yulin dog meat festival. Every year, 10,000 dogs are beaten, tortured, and even boiled alive before being served as food during the Yulin festival. Brought from all over China in cramped conditions, reports from the ground reveal many are stolen pets or guard dogs unsuspectingly being sent to a horrific death. Not only is your country’s image tarnished internationally by this event, but more importantly a strong majority of Chinese citizens are opposed to the event. There is a growing consensus inside and outside of China that the Yulin event is unacceptable and cruel. Please do the right thing and put an end to this barbaric event once and for all.

The letter
Please consider writing to the Chinese ambassador in your country (ideally before the Yulin event ends on July 30, but it’s also important to keep the pressure on all year). You can find a list of all Chinese ambassadors here: http://www.fmprc.gov.cn/mfa_eng/wjb_663304/zwjg_665342/2490_665344/ Sample letter: Dear XXXX I am writing to urge you to put pressure on the Chinese government to end the annual Yulin dog meat festival, where 10,000 dogs are tortured and eaten every year. The festival is doing irreparable harm to China’s reputation in this country, and my hope is that you have you will use your position and influence to relay this message back to Chinese authorities and strongly recommend an immediate end to the Yulin event. Not only is your country’s image tarnished internationally by this event, but more importantly a strong majority of Chinese citizens are opposed to the event. There is a growing consensus inside and outside of China that the Yulin event is unacceptable and cruel. You have an opportunity to be on the right side of history and help do what Chinese citizens, citizens of this country, and citizens around the world are asking: stop this barbaric ritual. Please do everything in your power to convince Chinese authorities to shut down the Yulin dog meat festival once and for all. Thank you, (your name)

Why a boycott?

China’s manufacturing sector has been a major driver of its economy, and tourism is increasingly important as well. Let's boycott Chinese goods and refrain from visiting China as tourists.
