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.

Words taken from the petition below:

Department store Harvey Nichols has gone back on their fur free policy from 2004 and started selling real fur again. A simple browse through their online shop shows that they are using rabbits, minks, foxes, raccoons and coyotes. They claim that they are only using fur that is ‘ethically sourced and humanely farmed’. Fur is cruel no matter how you obtain it. They also sell faux fur so there is no reason for them to be selling real fur.

    Hello,

    We can confirm that Harvey Nichols will be offering customers fur and fur trimmed products, as well as faux fur products, as part of our AW2014 collections.

    Harvey Nichols is committed to sustainable and responsible practice across all areas of its business, and ethical trading is an important part of this programme. We only source products from reputable brands, which includes seeking the assurance that the fur they use in products has been sourced humanely and ethically. We also expect these brands to adhere to the Origin Assured programme and labelling initiative as recommended by the International Fur Trade Association.

    Thank you for your interest in Harvey Nichols.

    Kind regards

    Humanely farmed – animals who, but for this arrogant exploitation, could have live free? This is tragic. They are keen on leather too: https://twitter.com/harveynichols

      Hi Lee,
      I think a company such as Harvey Nichols lacks ethics at every level – with food, cosmetics and clothing.
      As you would say, it is important to educate the consumer about how nonhuman animals are exploited at every level.
      Take care,
      Emy

    Gonna sign this and following you. Might I suggest to avoid linking a complete paragraph or quote as you did in this post? It makes browsing the article very difficult on smartphones like my windows phone. Had to hit the back button several times due to me touching for going down made the underlying link activate 😁 just a tip of course

    Disgusting! You would think that in this day and age when the information how there poor animals live and get murdered EVERYONE would say no to fur, but sadly too many seems to lack a brain.
