Fur Free Friday - GOR-64368-08
Animal Rights Protesters with sign, On "Fur Free Friday" What is offensive deviant behavior? New York City
Every year on the day after Thanksgiving for the last two decades, thousands of people around the U.S. have held demonstrations, marches, vigils and other activities for Fur Free Friday to protest a global multi-billion dollar industry that kills over 40 million animals annually. This national day of action is held on the busiest shopping day of the year, just as autumn changes to winter (when most furs are purchased). This allows activists to reach the greatest number of consumers, including those who may be thinking about buying fur as a gift or for their own use.
The message of Fur Free Friday is simple: The suffering and deaths of feeling animals is not worth the price of an expensive coat or the fur trim on a jacket collar, so please don't pay for the blood of innocent animals. Commercial fur and fur trim are stolen from animals who are trapped in the wild or confined on fur mills, raised in wire mesh cages and exposed to seasonal temperature extremes. These are the real fashion victims -injected with weed killer, burned by anal or vaginal electrocution, and trapped and clubbed to satisfy the vanity and greed of selfish human beings.
