People all over the world are coming together to protest against the horrible practice taking place in China every year. Yulin has a so-called festival in which around 10,000 dogs (and recently cats) are slaughtered and eaten to celebrate the solstice. It happens annually, and this year it is scheduled for June 21 and 22.

A huge media campaign has been launched, with over 200,000 people signing the petition to ban the event, the hashtag #stopyulin2015 being widely used, and celebrities using their popularity to bring the issue to light.

China’s government seems to be indifferent toward the opinions of outsiders (and toward the opinions of their own people), while the Chinese citizens are condemning the protesters, and claiming the festival is a part of their tradition. We believe this is not what tradition should look like, but you can watch the video and decide for yourself.
