Please send sample letter and sign two petitions protesting Chinese rodeo; letter and addresses generously provided by Anti-Fur Society

BACKGROUND | BY  

A coalition of 68 Chinese animal rights groups has called for the cancellation of Rodeo China, a Sino-U.S. cultural exchange event scheduled for October at Beijing’s National Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest.

Rodeo China was approved by the Chinese government in April as part of a series of Sino-American cultural exchange events. It will be the richest competition of its kind, with an unprecedented prize of $8 million. It will also be the biggest event of its kind, with around 120 cowboys, 180 horses, 36 bulls and 90 steers, primarily from the U.S. and Australia, competing in the Bird’s Nest stadium.

Please join us in calling for the cancellation of Rodeo China.


PETITIONS TO SIGN



WHOM TO CONTACT 



SAMPLE LETTER

To the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress of China

Chairman Wu Bang Guo

Dear Chairman Wu,

I am writing to you to express my greatest concern about your intention to bring American rodeo to China as part of the “American culture”.  What you may not be aware of is that rodeo is NOT a part of the culture of most Americans.  Americans in general are compassionate people and rodeos are a part of a culture that most Americans are disgraced and embarrassed about, not proud of.

I urge you to reconsider this decision to bring  American rodeo to your country.  Years of investigations have revealed horrific animal cruelty in American rodeos.  Animals not only suffer during this despised spectacle, but many are also killed during the event.  We do not wish this to Chinese citizens or anyone else in a world already full of violence. If you would like to bring American culture to China, please find a vast number of events that we are proud of and which truly reflects the compassion of American people and culture.

The Rodeo organizers say that they have humane laws and regulations that protect the performing animals, but this is what they want people to believe.  Just as a simple example, this past  July 24, 2011, a horse was cruelly killed in a rodeo performance in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  These are not rare occurrences. The links below show the aforementioned horse’s death and a second horse injured all in the same event:

Please reject American rodeo in China as it will only reflect poorly on your country.

Sincerely,

NAME

COUNTRY
