• 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.
