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.

Seeing someone wearing authentic fur can evoke extreme anger in those who care deeply about nonhuman animals.

I know my family get that “oh no” look on their faces when they are with me and we see someone in animal fur. 

They worry that I might just create a scene!

However, I have learnt that causes are won by sound argument and not vulgar actions.

It is so important to approach people in a polite way to avoid a confrontation.

If possible, always carry anti-fur leaflets with you, especially in winter.

This is an excellent way to raise awareness.

    I do so agree with a more friendly polite approach rather than an enraged argument. Though the temptation to be angry is significant I must admit. I avoid fake fur because according to my understanding if it is produced in China it may contain a mixture of real fur despite what is written on the label. Also fake fur is so good it is not easy to tell one from the other and makes it easier for people who wear the real thing to go unnoticed and may also promote the wearing of the real thing. The carrying of anti fur leaflets is a good idea, gives people a change to think about it more than they would otherwise.
