The boycotting will be hard (especially on Chinese goods), but more power to you. And the flyers are great idea. We need more like you out there.

I have thought about how to bring the world aware of the plight of the dogs n cats killed at these meat markets.big stores like walmart kmart taeget sears buy alot of their products from china korea and the Philippines. I used to work at walmart and I know that 90 percent of their merchandise comes from theses countries. We should hold rallys in front of these stores with pictures of the horror thats happening right now to animals in china korea and the Philippines. By holding such rallys...

We should hold rallys in front of these stores with pictures of the horror thats happening right now to animals in china korea and the Philippines. By holding such rallys this will bring attention from the news media to our CAUSE and thus awareness that the gloves n hats with fur inside them from these countries may very well be that of a dog or cat murdered in a horrendous way from one of thoae countries.

IF you are serious about doing this please contact NoToDogMeat and ask for their help. They have organised these kind of things before and they are a very nice bunch of people who will help you with leaflets, information and perhaps contact with other people who can join you in your area. I have worked with them on action days before and they will help you.

If we boycott one country, the other countries will get the message. Do one at a time until they stop it. If we do that, then no one goes without. China sends too many items to attempt to boycott everything they export. So, instead, let's we pick certain things and we BOYCOTT JUST THOSE ITEMS. For instance, any toys with any type of fur on them. We can boycott those. How about all exported Asian foods? We can all go without that too. Make a pledge not to go to a Korean restaurant for a...

Come on people WE MUST all band together TO STOP THIS EVIL ON OUR PLANET. BOYCOTT CHINA<SOUTH KOREA<VIETNAM in anyway you can, Get the media involved, contact celebrities, there are other countries too, but lets focus on these for now. If we are not part of the solution then we are part of the problem. This torture of our beautiful animals has been going on for so long. WE MUST DO SOMETHING< we can't leave it to others, everyone must get involved if you love animals. .

We must do it to one country first. That way, no one goes without anything. Then, if any other country allows it, they know we will do it to them too. Loss of funds will hurt them more than anything else we can do to them. No export money, poof...their funds go down. No demand, no need for a supply. S Korea...I urge you to listen, before it gets REALLY BAD for you. Any other country that does this...be ready...you're next! I will not purchase ANYTHING FROM S KOREA. BOYCOTT S KOREA!

I'm with Mary. But how? Any idea how hard it is to avoid Chinese products? One family tried and literally could not do it despite their best efforts. We need to bring bad publicity on them and have our businesses here stop importing from them. We cannot just blame these Asian nations when so many in this country elect to do business with them (because it's cheaper) for profits. The problem is too little intolerance everywhere. That's why we must rise up and make a difference.

Christopher, if you do it to only one country at a time, you won't have to worry about that. Yes, we have lots of products that are from China, but other countries make the same products, believe it or not. If people refuse to purchase from that particular country, they will hurt financially. You don't have to do it long. If everyone stops all purchases from China for one month...you are sending them a very clear message, financially...that we disagree with what they're doing Do it again in...

If everyone stops all purchases from China for one month...you are sending them a very clear message, financially...that we disagree with what they're doing Do it again in a couple of more months. Everyone has to pick a few months a year in which we do it. Let's say, none of us purchase ANYTHING MADE IN S. KOREA, in the month of August. Absolutely nothing from S Korea is sold at that point. We can all do without food from S. Korea. We can also all do without purchasing clothes from S. Korea. We do it again in October, and again in December and we keep doing it, every other month. We can purchase what we absolutely 'NEED', but no wants from that country, whatsoever.

Do you think a pig wants to be food any more than a dog does just because he or she is not a pet? What difference does not being a pet make to the pig's desire to live out their life in full? I don't understand the logic of your statement

The fundamental difference is in the way they are being killed! I haven't heard of pigs, cows, etc. being tortured to death before consumption. So why are Koreans and other asian nationalities torturing only cats and dogs???! THAT is what makes the whole thing so appalling, not the simple fact that cats and dogs are being eaten. To be honest, years ago I used to think what is the big deal about eating dogs? They are not much different from pigs (biologically) - until I found out about the...

To be honest, years ago I used to think what is the big deal about eating dogs? They are not much different from pigs (biologically) - until I found out about the horrible circumstances... The same goes for any other animal by the way. I used to like eating snake soup, until I found out how the snakes are killed... I haven't touched snake soup ever since!

I am replying to Michaela Stoffels ignorant comment, "I haven't heard of pigs, cows, etc. being tortured to death before consumption". Really? What rock have you been hiding under? Factory farming is extremely cruel and ALL animals are treated very cruelly on farms and in slaughterhouses. There is no such thing as humane slaughter and animals having their throats cut, limbs severed, and being skinned all while still alive and conscious is a common occurrence. They are also routinely beaten,...

I am replying to Michaela Stoffels ignorant comment, "I haven't heard of pigs, cows, etc. being tortured to death before consumption". Really? What rock have you been hiding under? Factory farming is extremely cruel and ALL animals are treated very cruelly on farms and in slaughterhouses. There is no such thing as humane slaughter and animals having their throats cut, limbs severed, and being skinned all while still alive and conscious is a common occurrence. They are also routinely beaten, kicked, dragged, and poked with electric prods on their way to the kill line. Dairy cows are raped with a metal tube filled with bull semen, forced to have a calf every year, their baby is then ripped away from them before it even hits the barn floor. Boy babies are killed right away or locked in veal crates and killed at 6 weeks old, girl babies suffer the same fate as their mother - and when their milk supply dries up at about 4 years old, they are made into your hamburgers. And don't think "organic" or "free range" means the animals are treated any better because they're not. Do some research - if you eat meat on the basis of your food being treated kindly, I promise you will become vegan overnight!

Boycotting is truly the only way to get through to them that THEY MUST STOP THIS!!! I'm including China, Thailand and Vietnam in this as well.

We should also shun them when they visit our countries. Make everything as difficult for them as we can.

Please, I really hate to be firm, but never mind the sermons. Nobody cares over there - or even here. In fact, religion helps them kill (as they justify it from scriptures). They slaughter animals here using biblical texts. If you want to help, skip the preaching to us. Make a difference to those that are doing these things to these poor animals.

Sorry Christopher, but without my Lord, I can do nothing. I will not deny Him now, no never - especially not after He has Saved me and allowed me to help those precious souls as I am able to do... No, not by my might, but by His. In truth, without Him, I am nothing. No, I will never leave Him out of anything I do – not my words, nor my work, not my rescuing, nor my life; for to do so would be to cut off any ability I may have to provide for those beloved beings that are in such desperate need. God bless you and good nite.

Thanks, Jo! Please keep in mind, though, that not all Asian people agree with this and take part in it. There are MANY good people in Korea and other Asian countries that are trying to put an end to this and despise it as much as we do. It is only through their help and eye witness accounts that we have been privy to this information. There are Asian people that are literally risking their lives to help these animals, so we can't paint an entire race with one wide brush. However, I do agree...

There are Asian people that are literally risking their lives to help these animals, so we can't paint an entire race with one wide brush. However, I do agree with others that have commented about boycotting products from this country and putting pressure on our governement and corporations, to step up and do their part. Unfortunately, their government is almost entirely to blame, as this is an illegal business that goes completely unmonitored, untaxed and they have chosen to look the other way because it's a "tradition". As usual, the corruption usually starts at the top and trickles down...

If you're boiling about this, JUST SAY NO in AUGUST, to purchasing ANY S KOREAN PRODUCTS. We will do it again in October and again in December. I'm saying 'NO' via my pocket, because that's what my mother told me: "If you want to send a message to someone that they will listen to, hit them where it hurts...in their pockets!" So, that's what I'm doing. I hope you will all join in this effort, to help S Korea understand that this is NOT ACCEPTABLE to anyone. We are America, and we are strong...

We have a voice, and I hope each of you will join me in using it, on behalf of all those that are forced to suffer in silence. Let's be their voice! JUST SAY NO TO PURCHASING ANY S KOREAN PRODUCTS IN THE MONTH OF AUGUST, OCT, and DECEMBER.

Are you willing to be consistent in your boycotting, or should we only boycott your personal biases? Do you agree we should all be boycotting US products until they apologise, 'grow up' and start acting with more humanity? If be interested to know from someone who advocates 'boycotting South korea' and 'buying everything from America' . You might want to rethink that.
