There is still time to stop this horrific celebration of the summer solstice in China where 15,000 dogs are to be slaughtered. What this has to be with this celebration I cannot imagine. To celebrate a highlight in the course of a natural event – the longest day – with a blood bath is appalling.
Each year in a town called Yulin in China, 10,000 to 15000 dogs are slaughtered every June as part of a summer solstice “festival”?
“On June 21st, over 10,000 dogs are expected to be slaughtered in a town called Yulin in China for its dog meat festival. This is our last chance to stop the dog slaughter before it’s too late.
While some cultures do not consider dogs as domesticated animals, the slaughter of thousands of innocent animals is worth speaking up against. The festival has been canceled before. If enough people speak up, we can stop it once more.
Please take the urgent action to help stop Yulin’s summer dog meat festival.”

I mentioned this hideous festival previously:
It has to be said that the slaughter of billions of farm and sea animals world-wide is just as shocking and we should never forget or become complacent about this.
However if we can but stop one such savagery and brutality it will be progress indeed.
As a matter of interest
There are better ways to celebrate the summer solstice:
Wheel of the Year Festival – Summer Solstice (Meditation)
The longest day, a mid-point, where the sun stands still upon the horizon. This marks the height of summer and the solar principle in its full radiance while the earth too is reaching fullness. On the map of human existence, mid-life is a time of self-exploration, consideration, choice, rejection and deciding which road to take.
