On the 11th of August, we held a “STOP! THE KILLING” performance event in Seoul Plaza in front of Seoul City Hall. It was the last of our Bok Nal (the three hottest days of summer) campaign events, the 11th of August being the last of the hottest summer days (called “mal bok” in Korean) in 2017.

Shut Down Cruel Gupo Market

On 17th August, a video was taken in the Gupo district of Busan. In the video, a dog was being brutally dragged along public streets by a pipe to which it was tightly bound from Gupo station to Gupo Market—a distance of about 1km. The dog was trying to untie the rope, and during his struggles, his skin was lacerated and claws were damaged.
