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.

As part of my campaign towards ending the fur trade in South Africa I have started an online pledge for those who will never buy any item containing real fur. This in turn will be used to request that retailers officially pledge to never sell items containing real fur in SA. This has been done in other places.

  • West Hollywood has banned the sale of real fur
  • There is a ban on fur in the Irish counties of Dublin and Fingal
  • Department stores in Australia have banned the sale of fur on their properties
  • Israel is in the process of implementing a TOTAL ban on the fur trade                                                                    

We want South Africa to follow this international trend. If you are interested, clicking on the photo below will take you to the pledge. Non South Africans are pledging in solidarity.                                             

PeTA has added its support to this campaign, as follows:                                                                                                                                                                                                       PeTA 

“Whether it came from an animal on a fur farm or one who was trapped in the wild, every fur coat, fur trinket, and bit of fur trim caused an animal tremendous suffering and a violent death. PETA’s more than 3 million members and supporters shun fur, as do most stylish celebrities, including Charlize Theron, Penélope Cruz, Eva Mendes, and Kate Winslet. PETA supports the campaign to end the fur trade in South Africa. Please pledge your support today”.                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Jg

Thank you PeTA, for your support.
