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.
