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.

An anti-fur demonstration was held in Johannesburg by Ban Animal Trading and Fur Free SA on Sunday April 12th.                                               blog fur1

The aim was to raise awareness around the brutal and senseless fur industry.

At 10:30 protesters gathered outside the Firs retail centre in Johannesburg.                                                                                                         blogfur15blogfur3                                                               blogfur7

Erich Fischer Furriers is a fur shop in the Firs.

Gaby did the face painting. The red paint represented blood.

Thanks to Gaby I ended up with a red nose instead of red tear drops 🙂                                                                                                                          blog furFPApr4

Our posters conveyed powerful anti-fur messages.                                                                                                                                          blogfur2

More than 30 protesters marched.                                                            Blog 111

The police escorted us and stopped the traffic for our march.                                                                                                        blogfur12blogfur11                                                                                                                          FPApr123

The police were totally supportive and relaxed.

We then stood on a main road where some of us handed out anti-fur leaflets.                                                                                                                                       blogfur9blogfur8

After an hour we marched back to the Firs.                                                                                                                           FPApr12 6                                                                                                                                                                            Photographs were taken by Chris Orr, a member of Fur Free SA.
