Followup to KR posting, Protests on US Beef Imports Widens in South Korea
As the public protests against US beef import in South Korea escalate, a number of Korean groups in the US has initiated petition campaigns in support and solidarity.
See the petition campaign of "Concerned Americans Against Mad Cow Disease" (with groups in Los Angeles, New York, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto):
"As citizens of the United States, we are concerned about the potential risk of Mad Cow Disease in U.S. beef. That is why we are so inspired by the efforts of thousands of Korean children, students, parents, elders, teachers and people from all walks of life in educating the Korean people and for participating in mass candlelight vigils to oppose the recent Korea-US trade negotiations that lifted the ban on U.S. beef. 82% of all people in South Korea are urging its government to re-negotiate the U.S. beef import agreement, and thousands of people are flooding into the streets throughout the country to express their concerns over food safety."
