June 22, 2017 news on House Resolution 30

Although House Resolution 30 has 165+ cosponsors, leaders of the Foreign Affairs Committee and of the House of Representatives communicated to our movement in June of 2017 that they would not be pushing the resolution to the House floor for a vote because of several reasons:

1) It singles out China. The barbaric practice is done in many Asian countries and singling out China doesn't seem like a wise thing to do. (America's complex financial tangles with China may have a lot to do with this reason as well.)

2) It was reported by several animal activist groups and picked up by several major news outlets that there would be a ban on dog meat sales at the Yulin Festival in 2017. House Leadership said the resolution would not be supported if brought to the floor because the barbaric part of the festival was reported to be "over" because of this ban. The resolution was partially centered around condemning this festival.

The reality is that there seems to be no ban on dog meat sales at the Yulin festival this year. You are free to draw your own conclusions about the reasons given. Again, the United States' complex financial ties to China may have a LOT to do with the major reason they don't want to push it to the floor for a vote. And it is House Leadership who gets to make the final call. And the bottom line is, they do have a point.. It DOES single out one country.

The good news is that a new similar resolution has just been introduced that calls out many major countries who allow this practice to continue. This Resolution does not single out just one country, and also includes cats. As soon as the resolution is finalized, we are going to start pushing hard for that one to pass. CLICK HERE

Pass H.Res.401

To provide strategies, community support, and calls to action to help pass House Resolution 401 (abbreviated H.Res.401), which Urges China, South Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, India, and all nations to outlaw the dog and cat meat trade and to enforce existing laws against the trade.

Previously, this group was Pass HRes.30. House Resolution 30 was Introduced in 2016 by Congressman Alcee Hastings as H.Res 752. In Jan 2017, it was renamed to be H.Res 30. We were told it would not be called to the floor for a vote because China was singled out. Therefore, Hastings introduced H.Res.401.

Citizen Lobbyists for H.Res. 401 (formerly H.Res. 30+752) to end the Dog and Cat Meat Trade

On May 25, 2016, U.S. Congressman Alcee Hastings (D-Fl) introduced House Resolution 752 to end the Yulin dog meat eating festival and the dog meat trade. Unfortunately Speaker Ryan ignored our pleas to send it to the House Floor for a vote. The resolution was re-introduced on Jan. 06, 2017 as H.Res. 30. On June 22, 2017 Alcee Hastings and Vern Buchanan introduced a global resolution to include all dog meat eating countries. We're calling, emailing, faxing, and posting to Representatives Facebook pages asking for their support of this vitally important Resolution. Failure is not an option!
