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.
It is always encouraging when someone takes a public stand against fur fashion.
Italy is renowned for fur fashion with animal fur garments and accessories dominating the Milan Fashion Week. There are also many Italian brand names such as FENDI, AERONAUTICA MILITARE and LUISA SPAGNOLI that proudly include animal fur in their clothing.
So it is good to know that in Italy, the Neapolitan pizzeria Sorbillo and the managers of a Monza bar have now banned entrance to customers wearing animal furs.
