 LA Protest Against Yulin Festival and Against China's Dog Meat Trade in Chinese World Journal Newspaper! (Translation Below)

The headline states: 
Protest Yulin Dog Meat Festival - Chinese Americans In Attendance

The synopsis of the article is about how dog lovers congregated around the Chinese Consulate to protest against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Among the 200-300 people in attendance, there were a showing of Chinese Americans. People were wearing black, raising signs and chanting to beating drums.

The demonstrators raised signs such as "Stop the Torture" "Stop Dog Meat" and also had gruesome photos shown of dogs being tortured. Also there’s a Chinese American who raised their sign saying "Asian Americans Against China's Dog Meat Trade." Everyone's purpose was to call upon public support to boycott the June Yulin Dog Meat festival in China.

Some protestors brought their own pet dogs in hope of bringing more awareness and sympathy from animal lovers.

From Hacienda Heights, Ms. Ma said it was her second time coming to protest against the Yulin Dog Meat Festival. Ms. Ma said she's owned several dogs before and that dogs are our friends. She hopes to not see such a torturous and tragic dog killing event like Yulin Dog Meat Festival go on. She came here to express the attitudes of Asian Americans against dog torturing.

Ms. Lee’s sign in Chinese says “Yulin Dog Meat Festival is China’s Shame”. She also says, In May of this year in Santa Monica, there was already a protest event. This time is her second protest and there were many more people, louder voices and on an even bigger scale. We chose to protest in front of the Chinese Consulate hoping the Chinese government could hear the voices of Americans. In recent years some Chinese congressman have proposed animal protection legislation but it hasn’t ever been approved. Gathering here is not solely against the Chinese government but just in hopes that the government would impose some animal protection related laws. The Yulin Dog Meat Festival not only eats dog meat but by ignoring the state of the dog’s health, they also torture and cruelly kill live dogs.

(The bottom line? I thought the reporter was only interested in speaking with those who are Chinese as that's what the emphasis of the article feels like. They were a bit ambivalent about capturing the whole picture from non-Asians. She thought I couldn't speak Chinese at all and only asked me a couple questions. Sad. I had so much more to say)........World Journal - CLICK HERE
