Ask Arthur Galan to go fur free: petition & sample letter

BACKGROUND

For Australian fashion designer Arthur Galan to use fur knowing what a ‘bloody’ truly evil trade it is, is simply unconscionable. Mr Galan clearly has no empathy for animals who are violently killed so he can profit from their fur. There is no such thing as humane fur and Mr Galan must know this. For this high-profile designer who has 19 stores across Australia to continue using fur when the treatment of animals is now more important to the public than it ever has been, is very worrying. We must not allow Mr Galan to hide his head in the sand and pretend the fur he uses doesn’t come from animals who are tortured and skinned alive. We must ensure Mr Galan holds his head in shame.

SAMPLE LETTER

To Whom It Concerns,

I am shocked to discover that Arthur Galan and associated brands supports the fur industry. Due to the savage business of fur, any products derived from the suffering and killing of animals should be rejected, and I am respectfully requesting that until Arthur Galan discontinues profiting off the exploitation of animals, consumers sever ties with them.

Please watch the undercover footage of the industry promoted: animals are forced to endure deplorable conditions including living in cramped, feces-crusted cages; suffering from sickness and disease; lacking an enriching environment; and being subjected to substandard diets and severe psychological trauma. They are then butchered via anal electrocution, gassing, skinning alive, and forced trauma.

FurStop.Com

Regrettably, as long as you unnecessarily and selfishly capitalize on the mutilation, torture, and death of animals, I will not financially support you or your associated brands. Furthermore, I will share this information with family, friends, colleagues, and members of online communities. Arthur Galan, why not act on principle and become a company that promotes compassion fashion? You can create very stylish clothing and accessories using synthetic materials.

Please make both the ethical and responsible decision to discontinue your commercial support of fur immediately: join an increasing body of compassionate businesses and designers who are listening to a concerned and attentive consumer population who refuse to be complicit in the inherently malicious industry of fur farming. I hope this letter finds you willing to scrutinize your own involvement and desire to protect, rather than harm, animals.

Thank you for taking the time to read this important message.

mr galan as your empire grows,
sadly, your lack of compassion
shows.
in your 19 stores, filled with once
blood soaked pelts,
have you stopped to think
how those animals felt.
screaming in horror and
terrible pain,
if you think about it,
it iscruel and insane.
so please stop selling fur
and join the ranks of
the humane

FUR BELONGS ON WHOM IT WAS BORN,
NOT BY THE VAIN AND FRIVOLOUS,
WORN

    I watched as Arthur Galan’s fur designs were proudly showed at a major fashion parade (sponsored by Loreal) in Australia just recently, I was truly sickened. He has 19 stores across Australia and is well aware that other Australian designers have been targetted in the past, one of which stopped using fur last year due to public scrutiny. It is so important that we keep the pressure on the designers as sooner or later they will realise using fur is just not worth the trouble and the drama activists cause.

    Murderers can’t be considered fashion designers, they are criminals and belong in prison.
    All done, twitted and shared. Thanks Stacey x

    Asking questions are in fact good thing if you are not understanding something fully,
    but this piece of writing gives nice understanding even.
