We express our indignation for the brutal and cruel traditional festival of Nem Thuong village in Vietnam. A live pig is brutally chopped into two with a large blade while it is totally conscious. Then, the villagers rush to smear their banknotes with the blood of the pig, in the belief that it will bring good luck in the New Year.
It is shameful and morally reprehensible that in 2013 animals being killed in the name of traditions so I ask you to STOP immediately this utterly pointless and horrific practice.

We citizens of all around the world ask the Vietnamese Government to end to this practice. The image of Vietnam depends also on these decisions. The modernity of a nation can be seen also in these changes.

We all thank you if you will listen to our pledge.

Signed,

Daniela de Prato

Thanks to all who signed this petition, and also to the supporters who gave us suggestions for improving this action. We can spread the news and find new supporters. That's why our new goal is now 15000 people to sign and our new deadline is March, 31 2013. Then our signature will be downloaded and sent to the Vietnamese Government. We will try to involve also some associations for animals' rights in Asia.

Thank you.
