Shut Down Underground Wildlife Markets To Prevent Future Pandemics

Target: Li Keqiang, Premier of the People’s Republic of China

Goal: Stop the underground trade of wildlife in China to prevent animal cruelty and future pandemics.

The coronavirus pandemic was passed to humans through a wildlife market in China, where it spread quickly throughout the rest of the world. This particular market was crowded with animals living in absolute squalor, stacked in overcrowded and dirty cages to be sold to humans. China shut down its public, above-ground markets, but this has done nothing to stop the trade overall, as it has moved underground.

For years, animal rights activists have pushed back against the sale and trade of exotic animals for a variety of reasons. Not only is it cruel to treat innocent creatures like collateral, but they carry many dangerous diseases. The coronavirus outbreak should have been the final nail in the coffin for these sales, but sadly, all it has done is encourage sneakier means of conducting these illegal actions.

We cannot allow another global pandemic to happen as a result of this disrespectful, reckless behavior. Sign this petition to urge China’s government to crack down hard on underground wildlife markets immediately.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Premier Li,

Despite China shutting down public wildlife markets, the trade continues underground. Not only is this incredibly cruel to the animals kept in cages and treated as objects to be bought and sold, but it was the cause of the coronavirus’s global spread in the first place.

You must immediately shut down and outlaw underground wildlife trades. For decades, innocent creatures have been suffering from this inhumane practice, all for the sake of monetary gain for humans, but this time it has negatively impacted the entire world. We cannot afford for another pandemic like this to happen, and to prevent it, the wildlife market must be shut down for good.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    I agree china is one barbaric country.. People should stop buying things made in China, or anything to do with China.

  3. Jaime Perez says:

    Can’t these people understand that these places of horror are breeding grounds for disease? Wet markets must be shutdown. No animal should ever be treated in the appalling manner that they are, in these places!

  4. They eat all the wildlife as it ‘enhancers their prowess’ so they are so ill – informed thinking goes. And of course a stupid ‘sign of wealth’. We are in trouble with a country of sooo many ignorant, males ( since they killed off most famale offspring for years)

    Although China is true a worldwide ecosystem destructive society, it is part of a pandemic more destructive and lethal than Covid19. It is called the “Money Virus” And is been infecting man since the beginning of time. The only cure are nature’s defense arsenal such as Covid19. Learn or die.
