Chinese letter to send, protesting Yulin

Used email addresses. Quota exceeded: 2; over quota: 9; user reject: 2; failed: 2
Dear Government of China,
China’s rich cultural and traditional history spans thousands of years and now China is fast becoming a recognized and dominating super economic power, with its citizens enjoying a high standard of living as the result of economic and social progress.
However, with great success comes great responsibility, and as a global citizen, I am truly shocked and appalled to learn about the cruelty and suffering currently being inflicted upon the helpless companion animals, namely dogs and cats, of Yulin, killed during the annual Yulin Dog Meat Festival.
This medieval way of treating animals sits at complete odds with how China has progressed as a society in recent years. This is not about cultural differences this is about the most basic of ethics and about treating animals with compassion.
It’s plain to see that the practices carried out at Yulin represent a new low for China. Those animals we choose to be our working companions, our eyes when we are blind, our guardians of the family home, to share our food and to be our best friends for hundreds of years are suffering and are being slaughtered in the most monstrous of ways.
There are many videos on YouTube to evidence this, although they are not easy to watch.
Despite how you feel about eating any animal, no living, sentient being should be abused or tortured for any reason, and no right-minded person can rationally argue otherwise. Dogs and cats suffer unspeakable horrors at the hands of farmers, traders and butchers – beaten, torched with fire, boiled alive, etc. Not all these animals are “farmed” – many are beloved, stolen pets.
The medieval treatment of companion animals in Yulin provides a cruel contrast to the slick, sophisticated, modern image that China tries so hard to portray to the outside world.
Until Yulin and the Chinese government officials begin to legitimately and aggressively police, enact and enforce the companion animal protection laws as a first step in ending this shameful industry, I will be protesting for the tens of thousands of suffering, neglected and abused companion animals living lives of utter misery and pain unto death throughout Yulin and other cities that supply these animals to Yulin.

作为一名全球公民,了解到玉林狗肉节每年遇害, 无助的狗和猫群所遭遇的残酷和痛苦, 不惜感到震惊与无奈。虽然YouTube所上载的影片不容易光看,但描述以证实了所有对狗儿们的残酷与暴力。
尽管对吃任何动物的感受如何,无论是住在何处, 没有一个正常的人会有任何合理的说词来辩解任何动物所遭受的折磨与残暴的对待。
狗和猫在农民,贸易商和屠夫的手中遭受难以言语的恐怖 - 殴打,火烧,活活烫煮, 以及活活砍断手脚等。
并不是所有这些动物都被“养殖” - 有许多的狗和猫是有主人疼爱的宠物,确被人偷去并做为食物。
直到榆林和中国政府官员开始合法,积极的管制,制定和执行动物保护法, 我和全世界的数万名支持者会继续抗议玉林节以及中国的狗和猫肉习俗。
我相信中国能打造一个先进和富有同情心的社会, 成为令人敬佩的榜样。

Inglewood, sister city to Gyeongju, S. Korea To post a copy of the letter
Twitter: .@GyeongJuCity .@gyeongsangbukdo .@CityofInglewood Plz Urge Sister City-Gyeongju,Korea-Stop torture/eating dogs/cats
Subject: Inglewood, sister city to Gyeongju, S. Korea
Dear Mayor Butts.
Dear City Council Members.
Gyeongju became Sister city with Inglewood in 1990.
Dog-meat consumption is currently being practiced in that city, regardless of the fact that it is illegal under South Korean Law – but the laws are not enforced.
The dog and cat meat trades involve extreme and widespread animal cruelty, and the animals suffer unimaginable pain and distress.
For your information:
They 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, 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 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  Gyeongju, especially Mayor  Yang-Sik Choi, 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.
