• DAY 265: THE SAN MIGUEL SIGN ON DOG-MEAT RESTAURANT IS REPLACED BY COKE ADVERT

    The Comiles restaurant in Baguio where I was served dog meat has taken down their San Miguel sign (because of our pressure) but replaced it with a coke sign. Coca-cola...are you happy about this?

    What a weird thing. 

    After thousands of people bombarding San Miguel’s facebook page (thank you thank you!)  the San Miguel sign was finally taken down from the Baguio dog-meat restaurant (hoorah!)…only to replaced with one advertising Coca Cola.

    This is both good and bad.

    Good because it shows that our opinion can make a difference. But bad because San Miguel have yet to come out with an official statement denouncing the dog-meat situation in the Philippines. Remember, San Miguel are not a spanish company but a huge Filipino organisation and it really isn’t hard for them to make a statement that might do a huge amount of good. We shall continue to press.

    And what about Coke?

    Well, its clear that Coke didn’t go and put this sign up. But I’m also sure they won’t want to be associated wiht a dog-meat restaurant.

    Right?

    Network for Animals and I will be chasing them. Watch this space.

    1. Ugh. What can we do to help?

    2. I’ll post about this soon. We can pester coke now.. it may sound frivolous but what we want is to get the big brands denouncing the trade so to bring awareness to the problem and press for political change.

    3. so, shall we start posting on the coca cola facebook page and see how they like the association with dog meat ???

    4. Hi Lea, I’m posting about this rigth now…

    5. Martin, you should pester Coca Cola with this. Absolutely! I suggest you write a similar letter to them as you did to San Miguel. I would reckon that they would at least send a reply. (They are much bigger than San Miguel. They have a campaign at “arctichome.at” together with the WWF – maybe you can even get them to support your project if you get their attention?)
