STOP YULIN FOREVER MARCH

OCTOBER 4th 2015

On World Animal Day (Oct. 4, 2015) Lisa Vanderpump led the world, including the U.K., China, Canada and the USA in a united march to speak up for the dogs endangered by the Yulin Dog Meat Festival.

Canada and London echoed their support by holding their own demonstrations on World Animal Day in honor of Lisa Vanderpump's peaceful march and protest in LA. Chinese and Taiwanese activists chimed in, sending in photos of their support all weekend, particularly ones where they held Stop Yulin Forever signs, verifying international support.

Lisa Vanderpump and the rest of her Stop Yulin Forever team were joined by approximately 1,500 supporters who turned out for the peaceful march and demonstration. Lisa opened the day with an emotional speech about her involvement and need to help her furry friends.

“They are so much more to us than food and they continue to prove that each and every day. They are our eyes for the blind, they provide therapy for post-traumatic stress survivors, they’re arson dogs, they have been able to detect certain cancers in humans and are companions for the companionless. Dogs are so sensitive to human’s needs, they can actually predict seizures. These are just a few reasons (I could go on for days) why we should be as sensitive and compassionate to their needs. They are truly Human’s Best Friend! And to think that these poor dogs in China are being snatched from their homes - tortured, beaten and boiled alive. The images that I have seen have deeply affected my everyday life. Each day that passes that this heinous festival rages on, a part of me crumbles. Our four legged friends do not receive the credit that they deserve and I want to use whatever platform I have been blessed with, to gain attention to the meat trade in China and STOP YULIN FOREVER.”
