Compassion is the fashion, and fur is DEAD! Fur season is again upon us, and as such, FAUN, in solidarity with Caring Activists Against Fur (CAAF), will be making our immutable opposition to the horrific Chinese fur trade known to those unscrupulous cretins whose livelihood is the confinement, torture and extraordinarily brutal extermination of innocent beings - all in the name of fickle "luxury" and transient, superfluous "fashion."
On Monday, October 14th (Columbus Day), CAAF will stage a demonstration at Macy's on West 34th Street in New York City. Columbus Day weekend is a BIG shopping weekend in the city friends, so let's not miss this EXTRAORDINARY opportunity for us to get the message of compassion for animals trapped in the bloody fur trade out to the public!
Come and add your voice to a burgeoning group of energetic animal activists whose prime directive is to elevate public awareness about the plight of innumerable defenseless foxes, minks, raccoons, dogs and cats and other mammal victims of the gruesome Chinese fur trade, who are violently and systematically removed from their natural habitats, corralled into inescapable death camps, crammed into tiny, filthy cages for months in ALL weather conditions, beaten, stomped on, anally electrocuted, gassed, bludgeoned to death, even SKINNED ALIVE so that affluent first-world consumers can gleefully, obliviously parade around, morbidly draped in the skins that are, quite literally, ripped off these animals' backs as they helplessly writhe in overwhelming shock and agony 'til the final throes of death overtake them. For many of these unfortunate creatures, that means the agony lasts for minutes or even hours!
These helpless animals are tortured and killed in the most horrifically cruel ways imaginable - all for vain, pretentious, human notions of "luxury apparel" and "fashion." Jump into the ongoing campaign to STOP this insanity and work toward the total abolition of the global fur industry. On Columbus Day, come out and HELP US make a vocal, public impact for the animals trapped and languishing in this insidious death trade, and to send a meaningful message to the heartless people who line their pockets with blood and entrails, who build their posh castles with the unspeakable screams of terror and suffering from countless innocent beings. For those unfamiliar with the realities of the horrible global fur trade, please take a few minutes to watch the following ( Warning: Graphic imagery!):
Disgusting? Horrible? Unforgivable? Agreed, so PLEASE come and help us to vocalize our extreme objection to this inexcusable, retrograde, medieval barbarism, to discourage/deter potential fur-shoppers from patronizing this retail dealer in death and torture, to enlighten the public to the grim realities behind their whimsical, self-deluding notions of fashion, and to encourage them to make more compassionate choices in shopping for winter apparel. In a world with so many great (and more economical) cruelty-free fabrics and styles, there really is ABSOLUTELY NO EXCUSE for this ongoing madness.
