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.

how many furs

About 26 million minks are killed, usually asphyxiated, every year for the sole purpose of acquiring their skin. Many skins make one fur coat.

Chinchillas are also farmed for their furs, where 100-200 chinchillas are killed for one coat.

      Thanks for this Peter. I applaud whenever I hear of actions to liberate animals from abhorrent conditions. What I like about ALF is that this movement adopts a “leaderless resistance” model of activism, which means community members can come on board and remain anonymous. Many of these activists are serving jail sentences for their “extreme” acts, which I think is admirable.
      It is, though, an indictment on our society that people have to resort to committing illegal acts to save other sentient beings. Legal protection for animals has been slow and even non-existent in some countries, which is appalling in the 21st century! I think Animal Rights Activists justify their actions through the argument of “Extensional self-defense”? This concept claims that because animals are “so vulnerable and oppressed they cannot fight back to attack or kill their oppressors”. In other words, animal activists have to defend these animals who are going to be harmed by humans.

      Hi Don. Thank you so much for sharing this. Any one who knows the facts behind the fur trade and still wears fur is disconnected from their soul. All the best!
