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.

      So well said, Vesna, thank you. But given the amount of cruelty around it seems we do need to remind people. Also people are so quick to blame their past, others etc. and in so doing abdicate responsibility!

        Oh, another thing I was thinking about,Vesna, is ignorance an excuse? When apartheid ended in South Africa in 1994, so many people claimed they did not know about the human rights violations. Surely it is one’s own responsibility to find out the facts?
        So if one gets a pet find out what he/she needs e.g. don’t chain or leave the animal exposed to extreme temperatures.
        When people claim that fur production is “humane” they are colluding with cruel people..
        Cruelty to other living things is a blight on our species!

  4. Emy, this is such a sad reality. I agree with everything you commented. The most difficult part to address is the collective numbness, utter denial, in order to continue being part of the bloodshed and abhorrent suffering and exploitation of creatures as commodities. Choice is a powerful tool, if each would say no, the fur industry comes to an end.

      Thank you for your wise words, Carmen. As you say, viewing animals as commodities and NOT sentient beings is the issue. People who wear fur are victims of their own narcissism. They don’t care who they hurt as long as they feel good. For them, animals are there to be used and abused.
      It is the same with rhino horns. Those who buy it, believe it is a status symbol and don’t care how it was obtained – by brutally killing an innocent creature :,(
      It is the mind-set that has to change!

      • So true, Emy, narcissism. As with the derivative product leather, it is many times targeted as a luxus commodity, which fuels narcissism. We were planning to buy a new car, nothing fancy but it had leather seats because it was somehow labelled as a luxus car. I asked for the fabric alternative. Audi does not make it as other brands do. We did not buy the car and I was clear about the reason behind.

        ~For and with our fellow creatures ♥

        What a coincidence, Carmen. We had exactly the same experience when wanting to buy an Audi. As you say, it is only the “luxury” models that have leather seats. What sort of message is that? Perhaps one should start a petition to Audi pointing out that leather seats are not what everyone desires. In fact the idea of sitting on a dead animal is off putting!

    Truly a coincidence about the Audi leather seats!. And what a disgusting smell inside. When we left the dealership I was thinking about sending a letter to Audi. A petioin sounds more powerful, indeed.
