January 28th, Nem Thuong village in Vietnam’s Bac Ninh province, local villagers held a ceremony on this 6th day of the lunar new year, to commemorate 13th century anti-imperial general Doan Thuong. Doan Thuong is also regarded as the village’s guardian deity.

Every year on the 6th day of the first month of the lunar year, thousands of the village’s residents will hold a ceremony/festival.

One of the controversial ceremonial activities is the splitting of a live pig. Because the scene is extremely bloody, it has been denounced by many, and even the local government has called for an end to this ceremony.

If this is a traditional thing, I see no reason to stop it. That'd be like asking China to stop Spring Festival wouldn't it?

or amerika to stop killing innocent civilians - or Israel to stop its genocide in Palestine.

c'mon bird - no need to do this sort of thing.

a lot different to setting off fireworks on Spring Eve don't you think?
Man created god before god created man and the world has been in turmoil ever since. Dots freak some people out - so they join them with lines that aren't really there.

The use of the US or Israel as examples is incorrect because those things you pointed out aren't traditional or cultural. The Vietnamese things is so it seems. As long as the pig is cleanly killed...by that, I mean humanely, then it's not a problem and is a non issue, or should be. Besides, it's Vietnam and therefore their business, not ours!

it is raised as a topic and as such is open to discussion.

but the use of the US bent on killing innocents has been going on for a long time and that qualifies it as a "tradition" likewise the Israeli genocide of Palestinians - when such acts are carried out over a protracted time (ie year after year) they are easily classified as "traditional" as opposed to such an event being a "one off" or "happenstance".

in fact the slaughter of innocents by the US is probably one of their long standing traditions - it goes way back into the short history of the nation - and apart from killing British the Israelis have done little else other than genocide of the Palestinians 0 again - year after year - thus the act becomes an Israeli "tradition".

Inbreeding is a traditional thing in Appalachia. It's a family tradition for many. {:soso_e113:}

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

That's too cruel to pigs. How about watching by their children ? What about growing up in this environment?{:soso_e149:}
