Please join us in opposition to the fur industry!

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LOCATION OF THIS DEMO HAS CHANGED. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE. The reason will be shared at the demo. Thank you for doing whatever it takes, and going wherever you're needed to chip away at the fur industry by educating the public.

Please join us in opposition to the fur industry and the stores that profit off these tortured animals. Fifty million animals are killed every year by the fur industry in the most violent ways possible: strangulation, suffocation (via gassing), and anal or genital electrocution. Fur was on the decline in the 1980's and early 90's. The fur industry spent millions in re-marketing this cruel product, and it worked. Fur sales are up. It's in every fashion magazine. It's sold at high end and low end retail. It's everywhere because there's a lot of money to be made off what belongs to the animals, their skin and fur!

The fur industry has a lot of money.

The animals ONLY have you.

Funeral Procession for the 50 million animals killed every year for fur

When: Sunday, January 6 from 1:00-3:15

Where: South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. We'll start at Nordstrom, then proceed into the mall

Dress: Dress up as though you're really going to a funeral, dark clothes, preferably black. We want attention so please dress up. We also need a few people in men's suits (dark jacket, pants, and tie with a light shirt) to replicate Blake Nordstrom (if you are planning to wear a men's suit, please email here letting me know). Most people will be funeral attendees (in all black), a few will be Blake (in men's suits).

We need you. The caged, terrified animals need you. The anti-fur campaign will only succeed with your help, and my help, and everyone's help.

For the animals!

      Thank you Brenda, I would love to see them... but it says I may not have permission... am I doing something wrong?

      oops had it set to just friends instead of public - I've changed the settings so now you can see them

    This was my first event ever like this and I was so very impressed how well organized it was and how coordinated all the participants were. I am so pleased to have played my small part in a group sending such a solid message to all about these horrific acts. I will gladly do it again.
