this just in from twyla's group canadians for the ethical treament of farm animals.
korea's solution to foot-and-mouth disease?
bury the animals.
take a look:
and you can take action as indicated in the above link, by writing to
hong ji-in, consul general of republic of korea in toronto
yoo jeongbok, korean minister of food, agriculture, forestry and fisheries
brian evans, canadian chief veterinary officer
you can do all this with the following convenient link:
like jacob, i agree with you for the most part.
we do what we can though with what we have at the moment.
you may find ways to add to your arsenal from this group:
What can u do
the first link sends us to Canada issues from last July and the 2nd link just sends me to my e-mail. So the middle link, pigs buried alive, will give us a letter to get some info. and the e-mail addresses for which to send a letter.
Thanks for sending this! :)
ya the first link is to cefta.
the second is the cefta article on the matter.
the third sets up your email with the address fields in place so you can send your letter (assuming your default email client has been setup properly).
that's excellent, ednshell!
some of these people need to see these things.
It is sad that in this article they mentioned hiring therapists to help traumatized workers deal with the slaughter. No therapy for the animals?
In this situation where some of the animals are extremely ill, what would your remedy be? It seems the lesser of evils, and I know it is evil, would be to spend money on medicines to put the animals in eternal sleep verses this torture and money spent on therapists.
We are also dealing with a culture that does not believe animals have a soul or feelings.
Sending an email is a short term solution for this problem, but like many Natural Hygienists say, we have to find the cause.
Mid term would be educating this culture that animals have feelings and rights too. Long term would be to transform animal farms into fruit farms so that this nonsense never has to happen again.
In peace and in hope, PK
sometimes we can only do what we can with the resources available. right now those resources are restricted to emails.
you are right that emails are only a short term effort - it's not even a solution.
your other ideas are excellent and have a logical progression to them.
the fact that there is a group called animal rights korea means that the culture is progressive. things start small and then they grow large and what's important is that they get supported. why not contact this ar group with your suggestions (they may fall on deaf ears, but they'll still take root) and ask if there is anything else you can do. setting up a network between ar activists throughout the world is an important advancement, so anytime we have such an opportunity, it is likely worth exploring.
