It’s not too late to send an e-mail or telephone the Chinese embassy of your country
Click this link to locate the contact details of your country’s the Chinese embassy:
Most of the links lead directly to one e-mail address.
However in the case of the UK and maybe others you may need to click on the embassy’s website link for e-mail details. This is the case for the UK but not the USA and many others I checked which have a direct e-mail address. You may also be presented with more than one e-mail choice as is the case of the UK’s Chinese embassy’s website, In the case of the UK I would think that the cultural e-mail address below would be the most likely, though I cannot say for sure.
China is a modern progressive country, there is no place in any modern society for the barbaric cruelty that is about to take place in Yulin to celebrate the summer solstice. Dogs, and cats also, are included in this blood bath of inhumanity. These animals are sentient beings who feel pain and suffer as would you or I or any other living being. They have a right to their lives as do we and indeed all creatures. I cannot understand the mentality of people who indulge in such behaviour, what joy, pleasure or even satisfaction can they derive from such cruelty.
Surely there is a far better way to celebrate the summer solstice and it is celebrated the world over in a more appropriate manner.
Here is how it is celebrated at Stonehenge in the UK:
