Subject: Rome, Italy, sister city to Seoul, S. Korea
 
Gentile Sindaca Virginia Raggi e Spettabile Consiglio Comunale della città di Roma,
 
Vi chiediamo di prendere visione dei video allegati sul mercato della carne di cane e di gatto nella Corea del Sud:
 
Ritenete opportuno che la città di Roma sia gemellata con una città che consente la tortura e il consumo alimentare di cani e gatti?

Vi chiediamo di esortare Won-Soon Park, sindaco della città di Seoul, a chiudere tutti gli allevamenti, i macelli, i mercati, le aziende di trasporto e i ristoranti che offrono questi prodotti animali.
Esiste una petizione online per porre fine a questo orrendo commercio di carne di cane e di gatto:


E’ molto gradita una vostra risposta in merito.
 
Vi ringraziamo sentitamente,

Dear Mayor Raggi and the City Council members,
 
Seoul became Sister city with Rome in 2000.
 
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 Seoul, especially Mayor Won-Soon Park, 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:
