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.

I know it’s Saturday, but yesterday I lost track of time! This is because I was engrossed in preparing for our/Fur Free SA’s anti-seal hunt protest to be held in Johannesburg on Sunday .

    SOS ~ SAVE OUR SEALS 

Stop the massacre of Cape Fur seals in Namibia T3

This annual slaughter occurs on the Namibian beaches between July and November. 

Namibia, a country on the West coast of Africa and bordering on South Africa, is known for its natural beauty. However, every year this beauty is marred when 80 000 to 90 000 Cape Fur seals are bludgeoned to death.

Nursing seal pups are killed for their soft skins that are sold to international fur markets. Male seals are killed for their genitals, which are sold in Asia to customers who erroneously believe that these are an aphrodisiac.

The seal pups are taken from their mothers, rounded up and beaten to death with spiked clubs. The sheer terror of this slaughter can cause pups to vomit their mother’s milk. The mother seals become extremely distressed during this massacre.

Although the European Union has placed a ban on all seal product imports, there are still fashion designers who use seal fur. In Namibia, seal skins are bought by a Turkish businessman, Hatem Yavuz, who resides in Australia. The Danish fashion house Birger Christensen has seal skin coats in its collection.

Tomorrow we will be the voice for the Namibian seals.

Part of my preparation was to think up chants while we march. For example,

Why, why, why 

Do the seals die

Why, why, why

Do we cry

Namibia!

Leave the seals alone

Let your shores be their home  

SOS, Save the seals  

Stop the slaughter  

Stop the pain  

There is no need  

It’s just your greed  

It’s all in vain  

Why, why why …

I think you get the idea. Any additions are most welcome 🙂

Watch this space for photos of the event.

  1. This is sickening I have read that it is even worse than our Canadian Seal hunt – which is horrific. I visited Namibia many years ago & at the time had no idea this even happened 😦 Good luck & I hope both our seal hunts end for good.

    Reblogged this on Ravens-Tree.com and commented:
    Totally evil and barbaric. All in involved are Satan’s spawn. It is a dark world when practices such as this still continue in the so called ‘civilised’ 21st century! Humans have lost their way BIG TIME.
