Fur Free Friday, November 27, Global DEMOS
Norwegian Fur Farming Horrors Revealed




For the second year, the Norwegian animal organization Nettverk for Dyrs Frihet (Network for Animal Freedom) has been running independent inspections in Norwegian fur farms and have discovered shocking conditions in which animals live. The extensive suffering they saw in nearly 50 fur farms is simply heartbreaking, and this just after the Norwegian minister of Agriculture said that fur animals were treated humanely in Norway.

Who would question "ethical" fur coats from Norway which is considered civilized? Norwegian animal caring people have a different story to tell, and since bad habits die hard, fur animal abusers are putting up a good fight against animal rights activists in Norway. Fearing the negative repercussion it will cause to their business, efforts are being made to discredit pro-animal groups who have dared to speak out against the atrocities. As we all know, it is now fashionable to portray animal people as "radicals & terrorists," thus, our counterparts in Norway need all the support they can get at home and abroad. As usual, our mission is to offer support to anti-fur activists worldwide, and our Norwegian friends do need our support so they may be continue exposing the unimaginable cruelty of the bloody fur trade.

Please watch the video so you may have an idea of how much suffering Norwegian fur animals are enduring for vanity and greed of the multi-million dollar fur industry. Sadly, we have no other choice, dear animal friends, than to ask you to please help us speak out for fur bearing animals in Norway as well.

The above information is déjà vu. About 3 years ago, the British journalist, Jonathan Owens, visited a supposedly "top notch" fur farm in Norway, and wrote this article:

This FUR FREE FRIDAY, let's join protesters worldwide to speak out for those who are denied the minimum basis of common decency. The Norwegian Embassy is chosen at this time because of the extreme disregard for fur bearing animals in their fur farms. Other such countries will be addressed at later dates. The demo at the above fur retailers' row are our usual protests against those who benefit from blood money. We look forward to seeing you at both events!

Last year's anti-fur march was part of more than 30 protests worldwide, a joint effort with the international anti-fur coalition. Here in DC, the local anti-fur coalition, consisting of 5 groups held hands and produced one of the best protests ever. On Youtube:

Posters and leaflets will be provided, so just bring your friends, your family, and anyone else you can recruit to join you. Please RSVP at [email protected]
