China revolts against the consumption of dog meat

Although the dog is man's best friend, it ends up in the pot and is on the menu of many restaurants in some Asian countries, such as China, the two Koreas, Vietnam and Thailand.

Between all of them, it is estimated that about 30 million dogs are eaten each year, of which more than half succumb to Chinese voracity.

To end this peculiar eating habit, some eight million people have supported an online motion asking the National People's Assembly, the organic Parliament of the authoritarian Chinese regime, to prohibit the consumption of dog meat.

Led by Congressman Zheng Xiaohe, it is the most widely supported citizens' initiative ever in China, targeting the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in the southern region of Guangxi.
