***CAAF 'Don't Buy Fur!' demo @ Bloomingdale's on Lexington Ave in NYC***

***CAAF Don't Buy Fur! demo @ Bloomingdale's in New York City!***

Come help us spread the word in NYC: Compassion is the fashion, and fur is DEAD!

Fur season is upon us once again, 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 Sunday, December 9th we will be staging another anti-fur demonstration at Bloomingdale's Dept. Store in New York City, NY.

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 skins that are quite literally, ripped off these animals' backs as they writhe in overwhelming shock and agony 'til the final throes of death overtake them. This means the pathetic, skinless creatures suffer for minutes or hours! These 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 in front of Bloomingdale's, 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


WHAT: **CAAF anti-fur demo @ Bloomingdale's in New York City**

WHERE: Bloomingdale's Lexington Ave. by 59th St, NYC
WHEN: Sunday, December 9th, 2o12.
TIME: From 1:00pm til 3:00pm.
PARKING: Activists are invited to gather from 1:00pm forward. If there are any questions about directions to and from this location in Manhattan, please call CAAF organizer Julie at [masked] and kindly leave a message including contact information.


WE will have plenty of signs, literature and relevant props to share with interested members of the general public. All YOU need to bring is yourself and your voice to speak up for the voiceless, who cannot articulate their own wish to freely live out their lives under the sun, to frolic and to bear young, to behave in accordance with their own natures with no interference from our species.

No more fur!!!

    Following the last successful demos at Macy’s and the Fur Source of NY, CAAF voices thundered along Lexington Ave. Today, Bloomingdale’s was our villain of the week. Much like centurions facing an invading horde, animal defenders lined up outside Bloomingdale’s with the twin objectives of educating the public on how animals are tortured & murdered for a fur coat and to show Bloomingdale’s their dirty fur peddling salon will not go unchallenged. As long as they continue to sell fur, we will publicly humiliate them in front of their shoppers. Bloomingdale’s has a choice leave the animals alone……or continue to face our wraith because we have put up with institutionalized animal abuse for far too long.

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.
