DOG FUR TRADE IN CHINA OF 2008 !!
McCartney to boycott China over animal cruelty
Sir Paul McCartney says he will never perform in China after watching a secretly taped film (see Video and report from Swiss Animal Protection - very graphic) of animals being abused and killed for their fur. In one scene, shot in a fur market in Guangzhou, southern China, and due to be broadcast on the BBC's Six O'Clock News last night, workers throw cats into boiling water. The film was watched by Sir Paul and his wife, Heather, at a preview screening.Sir Paul said yesterday: "I wouldn't dream of going over there to play, in the same way I wouldn't go to a country that supported apartheid. This is just disgusting. It's against every rule of humanity."Video of Animal Cruelty
(Message placed in Pledge Book, 12 Oct 2005)
My message to President Hu Jintao: When I watched this video (http://www.petatv.com/tvpopup/Prefs.asp?video=jcruel_china_dog) 2 days ago I was horrified and have been haunted ever since. You can tell in the video these people enjoy tormenting animals; what kind of people are you? Our treatment of animals shows the true nature of the person that you are and culture is not a boundary for this. We are all humans and the people in your country need to get with the 21st century as they live and act like barbarians and will one day have to answer for their cruelty to animals and children in slave labor. If you are poor then don't have kids, simple as that, why you continue to bring more people into your population if you have to resort to animal and child abuse and cruelty. We don't want your fur trimmed clothing and your cheap trinkets. Look deep into your heart and soul and do the right thing and become civilized people.

Each year mainly in China ( but also Thailand and the Philippines) millions of dogs and cats suffer cruel brutal lives and unspeakable terror and pain before being slowly tortured to death, killed solely for their fur and skins for a merciless trade. (Now in Belguim - see Europe's connection). We believe this horror must be stopped, suffering dogs and cats desperately need your help, and within this web site you will find out how you can help to ban the trade in cat and dog fur in Europe. Please be sure you go to the TAKE ACTION Page, and try to do as much there, as you can to help.
Voice 4 Dogs is a non-governmental organisation campaigning to end the exploitation and slaughter of cats and dogs for skin and fur products, by lobbying the Government and European Union, working with MEP's and helping and working with others in other EU countries that are working toward the same end, and raising public awareness.
Mission: to abolish the trade in cat and dog fur and skin products.
To urge Governments to encourage the Chinese Government to introduce an animal welfare law in its country, where none exits, so that animals have at least by law in China a right to be protected from cruelty.
Ultimately to get the export of dogs outlawed from Britain to China and certain Asian countries where they are subjected to the dog and cat fur trade and dog meat trades.
"This site is dedicated to all dogs and cats who suffer and die at the hands of those who carry out these evil acts, their cries have reached us."
