KoreanDogs.org: PyeongChang, S. Korea, host to the 2018 Winter Olympics

From:
http://www.anocolympic.org/nocs-directory/   Sample letter can be changed
------------------------------

Australian Olympic Committee Inc. NC.,
Comité Olympique et Interfédéral Belge,
British Olympic Association ,
Bhutan Olympic Committee,
Canadian Olympic Committee,
Comité Olympique et Sportif Luxembourgeois,
Deutscher Olympischer Sportbund,
Finnish Olympic Committee,
National Olympic Committee and Sports Confederation of Denmark,
Nederlands Olympisch Comité, Nederlandse Sport Federatie,
New Zealand Olympic Committee Inc.,
Norwegian Olympic and Paralympic Committee and Confederation of Sports.
 
Dear Representative, Sir, Madam, To whom it concerns:
 
PyeongChang, South Korea, is set to play the host for the global 2018 Winter Olympics, starting on Febr. 9th. An international gathering of elite athletes, sports fans, governments and businesses on such a grand scale is a unique platform for taking a meaningful stand against the widely condemned, barbaric and inhumane dog and cat meat trade in South Korea.
 
We know you are busy preparing for this epic sporting event.
 
However, we urge you to spare just a few minutes of your time to watch these video’s, as fellow people with compassion for animals, whether they are raised for our consumption or as our companions, working partners and guardians, we know you will agree that the current practice and attitude of those involved in this medieval industry is completely unacceptable and abhorrent.
 
No living being deserves such a torturous existence. Forced to endure the most extreme deprivation and unimaginable torment from the moment they are born until the day they are brutally slaughtered; dogs (our best friends) are battery farmed - imprisoned in cramped, rusty, raised cages all their lives with no protection from extreme elements. They have no access to water, exercise, or medical care.
Their eardrums are often burst to prevent them from barking.
Until, often in front of other live dogs, they are electrocuted, hanged, beaten, skinned or burnt alive in the ignorant belief that such suffering will improve their taste.
Could you imagine this happening to your best friend?
 
This industry is by no means small scale, thousands upon thousands of dogs are factory farmed in this way every day, there is no emphasis on even the most basic and cheapest humane farming methods in this operation. This trade has no basis in promoting "culture" or tradition of the Korean people, it is purely driven by greed and the profits that can be made in this severely under-regulated, tax free sector which in itself is highly unsanitary and a severe risk to both human and animal health.
 
Please do not look the other way, please do not see this issue as a 'cultural difference', we urge you to look at this issue with unbridled compassion and to use whatever means or methods you can to add your voice to the many already calling for change in south Korea.
Please use this unique opportunity to help change the lives of so many dogs and cats condemned to a life in the meat trade.
If South Korea knows the world is watching and is asking for a change, and if South Korea wants to be respected as a nation of conscience and ethics, South Koreans need to strengthen their abysmal and outdated animal welfare laws and permanently ban dog and cat consumption.
Please help us to bring about this change!
 
I would be very grateful for your reply and thank you for reading this.
 
Sincerely:
