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.

This campaign is joinly run by Bont Voor Dieren & Dieren Bescherming

Bont voor DierenDierenbescherming

Β The following translation is taken directly from the petition and explains the campaign:

In the Netherlands, nearly 6 million mink are bred each year and slain for their fur. Minks are wild animals who live in small steel wire cages on huge farms. The number of farms is declining somewhat in the Netherlands, but the number of mink that is slain has almost doubled since 2000! The mink skins are then exported and processed into fur coat, collar or purse.

Nertsenfokverbod

After years of intense lobbying by the Animal and Bont voor Dieren Parliament end of 2012 enacted a ban on mink farming. The prohibition is a transitional period until 2024, making it possible for mink holders to offset their loss and to switch to another industry.Unfortunately, the 160 mink holders in the Netherlands have jointly pursued a lawsuit against the Dutch state. The judge then concluded that while it is possible to ban mink breeding, but the mink holders are not compensated enough. This is the mink breeding ban since June of table: a huge blow to the mink.

Appeal

Fortunately Secretary Dijksma went immediately appealed. This appeal is probably in January 2015. Fur for Animals and the Animal Protection do everything to show that the mink holders Netherlands fur farms do not want. Because 85% of the Dutch are against fur production. That is why we launched a joint campaign to recall the mink holders to stop litigating and to show resistance to fur farms.

PLEASE Sign and share the petition: Netherlands wants no fur farms!
