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.

In a previous post titled, MINK EYELASH EXTENSIONS: Drop dead gorgeous?

@ https://emynow.wordpress.com/2013/10/16/mink-eyelash-extensions-drop-dead-gorgeous/,

I wrote about a recent trend of people wearing Mink eyelash extensions i.e. eyelash extensions made from real Mink hair.

This is what a consumer of Mink eyelashes had to say, ‘I finally purchased Real Fur Mink Lashes and am thrilled to start using them. They are the most luxurious on the market. Very lightweight and sultry… OOOWeeee lol! (sic)’.

 Consumers such as this clearly do not know the cruelty that goes into making Mink eyelash extensions.

In my post I stated:

IT IS FALSELY BELIEVED THAT MINK EYELASHES ARE CRUELTY FREE AND COLLECTED FROM  BRUSHING LIVE MINKS.

This following extremely powerful anti-fur advertisement was produced by the International Anti-Fur Coalition (IAFC), 2014.

I feel deeply honoured that I was quoted, as below, in that advertisement.

” It is falsely believed that mink eyelashes are cruelty free and collected from brushing live minks, but there is absolutely no way a wild mink is going to co-operate and let anyone brush his/her coat. And even if they were alive, those same minks will be gassed or beaten to death later and skinned for their fur. All these minks come from fur-farms, where they are routinely confined to small, wire-mesh cages and kept in a battery style system. With several animals in a cage there is barely room to move. In the wild these animals are naturally solitary. Minks on fur farms will never swim or frolic. The only “dead” in “drop dead gorgeous” advertisements, are thousands of minks, and all for mindless selfish vanity!!” Emy Wilhelm, animal activist and anti- fur campaigner. — with Halevy Jane and 3 others.

The International Anti-Fur Coalition is a worldwide group of organisations. Since 2006 it has been working to end the atrocities of the fur industry.

Its voice is most heard through Worldwide Fur Free Friday (WFFF)~ one of the biggest international days of action in the history of animal rights organisations. On a designated day, animal rights organisations, worldwide, gather to educate the public about the cruelty inherent in the fur trade. Together these groups campaign for the “dissolution of the despicable fur trade” (Jane Halevy – International Anti-Fur Coalition).

 

Thank you International Anti-Fur Coalition for everything that you do for the innocent creatures murdered in the name of fur fashion!

    They should make anyone who wears fur in any shape or form stand and witness the obscenity of how it is grown and ‘harvested’! Filthy obscene heinous trade.

    The simple truth is no fur is humane. Don’t buy any fur product of any nature, and to be absolutely sure dont buy any fake fur either.

      So true, Chris. NO FUR IS HUMANE.
      Don’t be deceived by labels claiming “fake fur” ~ this is often a lie. The fur industry is immoral at every level!

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and
    amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy I found this in my search for something regarding this.
