Investec Ltd. is the landlord of the fur shop ERICH FISCHER FURRIERS, which is based in Johannesburg.
Erich Fischer Furriers is trying to intimidate anti-fur activists but we will not be silenced!
Given its various animal conservation projects one would think that Investec cares about the well–being and preservation of animals.
Despite on-going public protest and direct communication with Investec, this corporate refuses to take a moral stand against the fur industry and ban the sale of fur on its properties.
Investec was given a dossier with the facts about the fur industry but dismissed this document, arguing that as long as an activity is legal, Investec does NOT judge the ethics of its tenants.
Investec does NOT see a contradiction in its ethics by profiting from the horrific fur industry! JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS LEGAL, DOES NOT MAKE IT MORAL!
It is time Investec put its money where its mouth is and do the moral thing by banning fur sales on its properties.
No compassionate person would promote the fur market knowing the true facts behind fur production.
We must be the voice for the voiceless!
Thank you for your support.
A random act of kindness goes a long way ❤
A few days ago in Dover, England, a couple was spotted giving shelter to a shivering dog tied to a lamppost in the pouring rain.
In an act of kindness these people took off their rain coats to cover this dog to keep him dry.
Jon Sparkes from Gala Bingo Dover, saw the couple and kindly gave them two umbrellas.
The bingo club then shared the story of these “two kind-hearted individuals” on its Facebook page.
More than 1,000 people liked the post and so this single act of compassion touched thousands of people, as the story spread over social media.
As one person commented, “It warms the cockles of your heart to see such wonderful unselfish people in this very often cruel world.”
Now I am sharing the story with you.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Dedicated to all the nonhuman animals who live and die in captivity!
As some of you know, in August 2104 a furrier laid a charge of ‘malicious damage to property’ against me for allegedly placing an educational sticker on his Johannesburg shop window.
A year later, on August 18th 2015, I was found guilty of ‘malicious damage to property’. This is mysterious, as no actual damage was seen on Erich Fischer Furrier’s shop.
Even more ridiculous is that Fischer seems to hold me responsible for every action taken against his shop.
What he doesn’t seem to understand is that the global anti-fur movement is huge and people will never give up until every battery-farm cage is empty.
Why? Because the fur industry is one of the cruellest and most senseless industries on our planet.
All this court case has done is to attract huge attention, local and global, to his fur business and I thank Mr Fischer for this!
This week started off with a scare for anti-fur activists when it looked like West Hollywood City was going to overturn its ban on the sale of genuine fur items.
Fortunately compassion prevailed and the ban stays!
Thank you to everyone who took action to keep this ban in place ❤
