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.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu called South Africa the RAINBOW NATION. 

The term symbolises the diversity of races, tribes, creeds, languages and lifestyles of modern South Africa.

If you came to the Global March For Lions on Saturday March 21st you would agree that South Africa is indeed a rainbow nation. Every shape, size, age and colour of person was there, roaring for our precious lions.

The protest was held outside the Lion Park, as this park permits the petting of lion cubs, which in all likelihood are later sold for canned hunting. Read more @

But, I will let my collage of photos tell the story:

Of course conflict is part of South African life.

Protesters were met by a counter protest set up by the Lion Park management.

Luckily the police were there to keep things under control.                                                                                                                              

Without a doubt, we roared the loudest!                                                                                                                                                                  Roar1

      Most South Africans are disgusted by canned hunting. Unfortunately foreigners will pay lots of money for a “trophy” and big money speaks louder than compassion to these greedy people 😦
      Thank you p.pillay for your comment .

  5. Extraordinary event, Emy, beutiful pictures. This is appalling greed and cruelty, like the Texan who got a permit to kill an endangered Black Rhino and bring the “trophy” home.

  6. Great to see people protesting this horror. I only recently found out about this canned hunting. There are no words to describe how disgusted I feel. This has to be as close to the bottom of the barrel as humanity can get.

  7. I have been an animal rights activists for years and years…demonstrating, door-to-door leafletting, writing letters, etc. I want you to know that I support you completely…100% but I can’t look at your pictures because I can’t stop the bad dreams. So know that I’m behind you but forgive me for not reading your blog. Thank you for the wonderful work you do. I’m very grateful. ❤

      I totally understand. It is distressing. My Feel Free Friday posts are meant to be uplifting to try balance all the sadness.
      Thank you for your kind words and all the best.
