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.

Protest action works

Accolades to Nicole van Gemert of the Dutch anti-fur group Bont Voor Dieren!

This week, after an appeal in January 2015, the appeal court has upheld the mink fur farming ban in the Netherlands. The Netherlands has been the third-largest producer of mink fur after Denmark and China, so millions of minks will be spared from a life of torture.

It has been a turbulent journey, which I have tracked since 2012

December 2012, the Dutch senate passed a ban on mink farming, largely due to investigations done by Bont Voor Dieren that revealed appalling conditions on fur farms. The aim was to phase out mink farming over ten years.

 As the Dutch fur farmers were not offered any compensation for loss of income, in May 2014 this ban was reversed. 

In the words of Nicole van Gemert,

‘Ever since our foundation, Bont voor Dieren has put up a battle against the Dutch mink breeders. We have had to endure some major setbacks, the overturn of the mink ban last year being the absolute low point. But perseverance kills the game: not only is the mink ban back in force, all expansions of mink farms carried out since the ban was announced are now illegal.’

DEDICATED TO ALL NONHUMAN ANIMALS WHO LIVE AND DIE IN CAPTIVITY!
