Hello everyone and welcome to the holiday season! I wanted to write to make sure that you all know about Fur-Free Friday (this Friday, November 25th) and invite you to take part in Seattle's "celebration" of the day. Fur-Free Friday is the largest annual national day of protest against the sale of animal fur. Concerned animal lovers and animal rights activists will be holding anti-fur demonstrations in cities across the country and abroad. In Seattle, Action for Animals is holding a demonstration outside of Nordstrom, which continues to sell the fur of animals who have been cruelly killed by such methods as drowning, poisoning, strangulation, genital electrocution, and being trapped or beaten to death.
Signs and flyers will be provided; you just need to show up! This will be a peaceful and legal demonstration, and a very easy way to get involved in helping animals. The more people we have speaking up for the animals the better, so please be there and invite your friends and family to join you! Feel free to forward this email or use the Facebook event page to invite others.
When: Friday, November 25th, 12:30 - 2pm
Where:Downtown Seattle Nordstrom @ 6th and Pine, Seattle
Just let me know if you have any questions, and I hope to see you there! Best, Amanda
Please remember to not wear any animal-sourced clothing (leather, wool, feathers/down, etc.). We want people to stay focused on the message of not exploiting or killing animals. **Fur is not the only animal-sourced clothing that is a product of animal exploitation and cruelty. For information on what's wrong with wool, leather, down, and silk, please visit: http://afa-online.org/docs/skintrade.pdf**
