Marc Ching informó, este martes, del rescate de al menos 1,000 perros, a los que iban a sacrificar como parte de un festival de 10 días que se celebra en China.

El activista compartió videos en la cuenta de Instagram de “Animal Hope and Wellness”, organización dedicada al rescate de animales abusados.

La intervención se realizó en varios mataderos del país, incluyendo Yulin, donde se realiza el festival de carne de perro en el que se estima que 10,000 de estos mamíferos serán sacrificados.

People dreamed about this. People signed petitions and protested. People wrote their congressman and government. People filled the streets and stood in unison. . Well that dream, it is becoming reality. We have shut down six slaughterhouses, have five pending, and are on our way to visit a dozen more. . To those that thought it was impossible – it is becoming possible. For people who cried and screamed into the night, hope remains. . The reality of shutting down a festival where 10,000 dogs die, is that you have thousands of lives that need rescue. . We cannot do this alone. I have till tomorrow to save the lives that need saving. The world wanted the festival to end, and we are here trying to end it. . We need local rescues to step in. I can take 100 dogs, maybe 200. But that is all. Literally we have the smallest foundation on Earth. It is just me and my director Valarie. There are groups that are a hundred times greater then we. There are hundreds of organizations that petitioned and stood out in protest. . This is the time. Do not desert the cause you asked the world to defend. Do not leave us here by ourselves. Do not abandon the mission. . Note: For those that want to help rescue these dogs and shutdown Yulin, please donate. . http://www.animalhopeandwellness.org/donate/ . #TheCompassionProject #marcching #TheHeartOfRescue #animalhopeandwellness

This is live. This is now: The Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, and The Tree of Life – we just rescued over 1000 dogs from Yulin. . A thousand breaths that would die here in the dark. A thousand lives that would bleed like blood left there upon ground. . These dogs, they are brothers. They are sisters. They are fathers and mothers. They are children. They deserve a chance. . All life deserves chance. . The Compassion Project. If it is about one thing, it is about that as human beings, we were meant to love. We were meant to breathe life. We were meant to be – better then who we are. . Speak out. Hold hands. Love the Earth. And rescue. Because in the end, even we need rescuing. . (Thank you Tree Of Life for teaming with us to make this possible. Thank you XiaoFang and our Nanning team for your hard and enduring work. . Thank you to our Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation volunteers. Real people that left their families – to stand here and sacrifice for the cause. . Unreal.) . #TheCompassionProject #animalhopeandwellness #SpeakTheTruth

Junto a Valarie Ianniello, Ching fue ingresando a los espacios y sacando uno a uno a los canes.

“Mil alientos que hubieran muerto aquí en la oscuridad. Mil vidas que habrían sangrado como sangre dejada sobre el suelo”, escribió Ching en la página de Facebook de la referida organización.

El Festival de la Carne de Perro de Yulin es una popular celebración que se remonta a los años 90. Su objetivo es conmemorar el solsticio de verano mediante el consumo de miles de estos animales.

El evento ha sido repudiado por las organizaciones protectoras de animales y ha movilizado a cientos de miles de cibernautas que piden la cancelación del mismo.

Millones apoyaron la campaña de recogida de firmas en la página Change.org para que el festival se cancele. Otros usuarios han usado el hashtag #stopyulin2015 (paren Yulin 2015) en sus publicaciones de redes sociales.
