Anti-fur protest at Harvey Nichols department store, Knightsbridge.
Nearest tube is Knightsbridge (Sloane Street/Knightbridge exit). The protest will continue till about 4-5pm.
The national campaign against the sale of fur in Harvey Nichols is still going strong, with regular protests at Harvey Nichols stores nationwide in Manchester, Bristol, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Leeds, Dublin, and Liverpool, as well as London, see the CAFT website for details www.caft.org.uk/HN
Almost 10 years after they agreed to stop selling fur, the department store chain Harvey Nichols has decided to drop its ethical fur-free policy.
Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols' Company Director said: "The board has today reviewed the company's fur policy and has decided going forward that we will no longer stock real fur items."
In an email to CAFT, their Press and Marketing Director wrote: "I can confirm that our buyers have bought fur trimmed products for this
season. We have taken this opportunity to review our fur policy and from this season onwards we will be stocking fur trimmed products. The fur used is ethically sourced and humanely farmed."
It is vitally important to take action on this, Harvey Nichols is very influential in the world of fashion. If Harvey Nichols gets away with
it, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow. Department stores are much more important and influential than
individual shops in the fashion retail trade.
Please contact Harvey Nichols by email, phone, post and/or fax. Tell them about the horrors of the fur trade and ask them to reinstate their fur free policy.
