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.

Accolades to all the courageous people who put their own lives at risk to keep the ‘Great Apes’ free.  

Many people link the Ebola outbreak to the consumption of “bush meat”.

Pikin, the Gorilla, was rescued from the “bush meat” trade in Cameroon.                                           Rescued-From-the-Bush-Meat-Trade-CameroonAppolinaire Mdohoudou and Pikin, Ape Action Africa, Cameroon, 2009

This is one of my  favorite photographs taken by Jo-Anne McArthur.

For 15 years Jo-Anne McArthur has taken photographs revealing the cruel treatment of animals worldwide

She calls herself a war photographer, as she believes “there’s a war on animals”.

Jo-Anne has captured some of the most haunting images that I have ever seen, including animals caged on fur farms.

She has published a book of her excellent photographs.

Dedicated to all nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!

  3. Jo-Anne, such as yourself and all who fight for animal liberation and in whatever small or large why they do battle, are heroes of a special sort. And you’ve made Fridays a little easier to endure.

    Peace.

      Thank you for those kind words, Peter. Sometimes we need to be reminded that even small actions can contribute. Jo-Anne is a league of her own. How she can bear to witness such acts of cruelty, I don’t know. I would be arrested for grievous bodily harm and no doubt would come off second best in any case.

      Peace to you too.

  4. What a beautiful picture, Emy, a cause very close to my heart. Those who risk their iives in the bushmeat war to protect, rescue and treat the innocent victims are everyday outstanding heroes. Each life saved is a huge victory. The intrepid individulas who document these efforts inspire to lead a life of service to the unprotected.

    It is appalling to know that 100 tonnes/year (!) of bushmeat reach the European plates, delighted to consume the illicit and the forbidden as a status symbol. This is no longer primitive ways, but a modern and outrageous demand.

    Peace and safety to all those beautiful babies and families along their valiant defenders in the land of peril.

    Big hug,
    Carmen

      What powerful words Carmen, and thank you for the information about Europe. It seem many people will do anything to to make themselves feel superior to others. And who decides what is a “status symbol”? The suppliers no doubt – anything to make money. Totally immoral!

      It is indeed a tribute to all those rangers who get killed thrying to protect innocent beings.

      Hugs back,
      Emy ❤
