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.

Even if you don’t follow football/soccer, most people know that currently Brazil is hosting the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

In many ways South Africa, which hosted the 2010 FIFA World Cup, is similar to Brazil. Both are developing countries with a huge economic gap between the rich and the poor. This discrepancy has led to high levels of crime where Rio de Janeiro and Johannesburg are in competition for being  the crime capital of the world. However, something quite magical happened in South Africa when we held the World Cup. There was a sense of  national pride. Motorists hooted at each other in solidarity rather than the usual aggression. I was even seen, bundled up in red, in support of Spain.

So where was my national pride, you might ask? Well, unlike Brazil, when  it comes to international soccer, South Africa is dismal. Perhaps it has something to do with the team being called “Bafana, Bafana”, which when translated into English means Boys, Boys. Not exactly the “Indomitable Lions”, is it?

Sadly though, unlike South Africa, Brazil has a LARGE FUR-FARMING INDUSTRY! South Africa imports fur sourced from these overseas farms.                                                                            brazil ed.xml

O Boticário, the second biggest Brazilian cosmetic company, is committed to revealing the dreadful nature of the fur industry. They have a Face Book page dedicated to this.                          Boicote Boticário

These photos of arctic foxes on fur farms were taken by O Boticário.                                                                                          help end the cruel fur trade in South Africa

All I have to say is:

Brazil, play fair and stop the abuse of nonhuman animals on fur farms in your country!
