Groups Urge Boycott of 2008 Olympics in Beijing, China and Chinese Tourism: Reason: Treatment of Animals in China's Fur Industry and In General

There is no other issue I’ve posted more on than China and it’s treatment of animals. They are by far the cruelest country on Earth. The article below states that there is “horrific abuse of animals in China.” This is absolutely true.

Just look at the prior posting of today. The abuse of dogs and cats alone for fur and meat is enough to justify a boycott. As stated below, "They are indeed the largest exporter of fur products anywhere in the world…''

Don’t believe me? Just visit these links below. The first link is especially telling as it provides actual photos of the reality of animal torture in China:



Animal rights groups call for Olympic boycott

ANIMAL liberation groups are urging people to boycott the Beijing Olympics because of the treatment of animals in China's fur industry.

A small but vocal group from the Anti-Fur Coalition gathered in a peaceful demonstration outside the Chinese Consulate in Melbourne's inner east this morning.

It was one of 30 protests staged worldwide today as part of an International Day of Protest Against Chinese Fur.

Danielle Archer, a spokeswoman for the group, said the purpose of the gathering was to encourage people to boycott the Beijing Olympics because of the "horrific abuse'' of animals in China.

"We're asking people to boycott the 2008 Olympics in China, we're asking people to boycott Chinese tourism as well,'' she said.

Ms Archer said the group was lobbying the Australian Government who in turn could encourage China to create laws that would see an end to animals being skinned alive for their fur.

"I think Australia can set an example. Already the importation of dog and cat fur is banned ... But I do think the Australian Government can take further steps and put pressure on the Chinese Government,'' she said.

Although the group would like to see the fur industry shut down worldwide, Ms Archer said that China was targeted in particular because of its lack of animal protection laws, and because of the size of the market for Chinese fur.

"They are indeed the largest exporter of fur products anywhere in the world,'' she said.
