***CAAF anti-fur demonstration @ Borhe's Furs in Fort Lee, NJ ***

Shades of autumn are on the periphery and fur season is nearly upon us! Come and help us get the word out that compassion is the fashion, and fur is DEAD ! FAUN NY/NJ, 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 Saturday, October 6th, CAAF, with the support of FAUN, will be staging a demonstration at Borhe's Furs in Fort Lee, NJ. 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 were, quite literally, ripped off these animals' backs as they helplessly writhed in overwhelming shock and agony 'til the final throes of death overtook them.

This often means the poor, pathetic, skinless creatures writhe in mortal agony  for minutes or hours before succumbing to the overwhelming pain and shock of being skinned alive.

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. 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.

**ACTIVIST NOTE!** At the close of this demonstration, Anthony and some FAUN activists will be proceeding to Marzigliano's Live Animal Dungeon in West New York, NJ (approx 30 minutes away) to let these heartless butchers know once again that we persist in our unilateral disgust for their lucrative barbarism, that we are sickened by their happy, complicity in the slavery, torture and execution of our fellow sentient beings. We'll be exhibiting our signs and handing out relevant leaflets, which specifically target the insidious live poultry markets throughout our region. With our ever-growing repertoire of "live market" props and a widescreen video in our arsenal, the message of kindness to ALL animals will be heard loud and clear once again in West New York on this chilly Saturday in November. Please come and help us help stand in defense of the turkeys, chickens, rabbits, pigeons and other "poultry" animals trapped in this hellhole in West New York. Here's the link:

    Great kickoff to what we hope will be a smashing fur season! Borhe's Furs in Fort Lee was visited by faithful old friends Caring Activists Against FUR (CAAF) supported by FAUN and a number of affiliated activists , culminating in a very strong turnout here at the outset of fur season. Though there wasn't a lot of foot traffic today, the volume of vehicular traffic was colossal, and with so many sign-bearers at the ready, no one could drive through without a crash-education in the production of fur, and all its unthinkable attendent horrors for hapless animal victims. Enough activists manifest today that we were able to man (and woman) every streetcorner in the area, as well as having a number of people line up on the sidewalk in front of the store (I'm sure Borhe and his cronies appreciated the free and truthful advertising!) Was great to connected to some activists we hadn't seen in a while; a great launch to what we hope will be a winter of unprecedented anti-fur enlightenment .

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
