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.

Sadly, the senseless clubbing to death of Cape Fur seals in Namibia starts NOW.Seals of Nam

On Sunday, Fur Free SA (FFSA) protested against this atrocity. Our protest aimed to educate the public and to encourage people to put pressure on Namibia to stop slaughtering seals.

I will let the photos taken by our photographers ~ Chris, Dani and Dirk ~ recount the day.

When protesting, it is important to draw attention, as well as distributing relevant leaflets.

Four eye-catching FFSA supporters agreed to dress in “bloody” body stockings and fake fur to symbolise skinned seals.

We ignored any negative comments.

This march could not have happened without a metro police escort.

We must continue to put pressure on the Namibian government to stop this slaughter.

  1. Good on them all and you too for going and sharing this with us. Sickening. How anyone can look such creatures in the eyes and then brutally kill them is beyond me. x
