Greetings from Johannesburg, South Africa. Although I have a doctorate in psychotherapy, my main passion is advocating for nonhuman animal rights. I condemn all cruelty to nonhuman animals and therefore follow a vegan lifestyle. I would like to connect with other animal activists from all over the world. The fur trade is one of the most abhorrent practices on this planet. Innocent animals are subjected to prolonged suffering for a trivial fashion item. As the chairperson of Fur Free SA. we campaign towards ending the global fur industry. This might not happen in my lifetime, but even if I leave one footprint behind, that is one step closer to the goal. This blog is a forum to discuss all aspects of the fur industry. It also raises issues around animal activism in general. Johannesburg is a crazy city and I need to escape from time to time. This photo was taken next to the magnificent Zambezi river.

Iggy Pop Fights CanadaÕs Seal Slaughter

You might well be asking who is Iggy Pop? Well, he is that 66-year-old debauched looking musician seen in PeTA’s campaign against seal clubbing.

This is one approach that PeTA has to its campaigns – getting rough guys to stand up for animal rights.

See previous post: https://emynow.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/male-mink-huggers-not-wimps/

What do you think about PeTA’s strategy? I think it works by giving the message that tough men can care for animals. 

Throughout his music career, Iggy Pop has been labelled, “hell-raising, punk-inventing, drug-abusing, torso-baring, lock-up-your-daughters and rock god“.

Yet now, behind that wild image, is a vegetarian, animal-rights guy and PeTA endorser. In September this year (2013) Iggy Pop and Yoko Ono recorded a song together where all proceeds will benefit Paws 4 You Rescue of Miami.

So it just goes to show. Never judge  a book by its cover 🙂
