Encourage Animal Welfare Activists in China

Target: Peter Li, China for Humane Society International and Jill Robinson, CEO and founder of Animals Asia

Goal: Lobby for laws that promote animal protection in China

In recent years, China has become infamous for animal cruelty. Bears are caged and used for their bile, shark fins are cut off and tossed into soup, live aquatic animals are stuffed into plastic necklaces, and mammals at fur farms are skinned alive. A large portion of Chinese citizens have been desensitized to such cruelty, until now, thanks to China for Humane Society International and Animals Asia. Both organizations raise awareness of animal cruelty in China and are becoming more popular every day by working tirelessly to end cruel practices. Support these activist groups and urge them to lobby for legislation that will mitigate the mistreatment of animal.

Although much of China does not oppose cruel practices towards animals, more and more young people are speaking up against methods they deem inappropriate, such as bear bile farming. These young voices have the power to drastically change the treatment of animals in the country, and this is all thanks to groups like China for Humane Society International. Peter Li, an employee, claims that “‘animal welfare’ was a foreign term” before animal rights groups began to speak out against cruelty, but it is now “a well-known concept.” Li also noted that young people are pressuring the government for anti-cruelty legislation, illustrating a drastic change in the culture. Animal rights groups should be doing the same with force.

Li and other employees of activist groups in the country also have the power to lobby for measures that will better the lives of millions of animals. They have already inspired young people to stand up to practices that were once deemed appropriate, and therefore they have a public backing to help them reach their goal. Urge these animal welfare organizations to continue their fight and use their newly gained support to make legal changes in China.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Peter Li, China for Humane Society International and Jill Robinson, CEO and founder of Animals Asia,

Thank you for your tireless work in raising awareness of animal cruelty in China. Because of your efforts, many young Chinese citizens are following suit and speaking out against the mistreatment of animals. While raising awareness is important and has resulted in a dramatic cultural shift, I urge you to lobby for legal measures that will assist in making cruel practices illegal. As activists and animal welfare organizations, you have a unique ability to understand what measures would be most beneficial and then raise support to get them passed. You have a growing group of followers to help you achieve this goal.

You have support across the world, and I encourage you to fight back against a legal system that offers little protection to innocent animals in China.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I salute the Chinese Angels. I support you. I understand it is a lot more difficult to fight for rights in China. I for one will defend you if i hear negative comments that all Chinese are barbaric and cruel. We have our fair share of cruelty in the West. I, like many informed people defend you. We need you Grass roots from within will change so many things. It is only through you ,the young,aware caring brave Chinese that can change things. But know this MANY of us in the west look on with admiration. You will earn the respect of the World and show us all that with sheer determination WE can change old laws, ideas and move forward as kind aware and loving beings……. Australia

  5. When, when are the human race going to wake up to the fact that WE MUST RESPECT ALL the creatures our precious Lord created. It was HIS instruction to us to look after them and protect them, NOT abuse and torture HIS creations. What will they do when the tables are turned? Which is going to happen, read the Word of God and your will see, payback time is coming and then it will be the animals feasting on the flesh of man!!Deu_28:26 And thy carcase shall be meat unto all fowls of the air, and unto the beasts of the earth, and no man shall fray them away. Deu_32:24 They shall be burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust. Jer_7:33 And the carcases of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the heaven, and for the beasts of the earth; and none shall fray them away. Many more place in the Bible tells us what will happen to evil people!
