Welcome to Maxfield… and their 2012 collection

At the beginning of a campaign by Fur Free West Hollywood, celebrity-driven Maxfield agreed to remove and end the sale of all fur – like baby blankets and motor cycle helmets – from their West Hollywood store. They removed the fur, but then restocked it and actively oppose to a planned fur ban in West Hollywood by writing letters to the Mayor and other people of importance.

This Saturday (11th of February from 12 pm – 2 pm) Fur Free West Hollywood organizes an anti-fur protest outside Maxfield.

Important! Leading up to the protest we ask you to let Maxfield know what happens when they break their promise to the animals: send them as many protest mails as possible for the next 3 days and tell your friends to do the same!

Sample Maxfield Letter

Dear Representative of Maxfield,

West Hollywood has been a leader in passing groundbreaking legislation in the area of animal welfare. In 1989, West Hollywood passed Resolution Number 558 proclaiming West Hollywood a “Cruelty Free Zone for Animals.” It is time to further the effort to make good on that promise. West Hollywood has the opportunity to once again be a leader for animal welfare by becoming the first Fur Free City in the Nation, to be a place that is free of cruelty to animals and to be a place that no longer supports the barbaric fur trade by selling products made of fur.

Please watch the following account of the fur trade:

I call on you to hold true to your agreement with Fur Free West Hollywood to remove and end the sale of all fur.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]

Fur belongs on whom it was born
Not by the vain and frivolous,
Worn
If spacemen decided that
Humans were a coat
The humans would
Cry out in horror
And that not all
She wrote
So treat all beings
As you wish to be treated
Or you are no more
Than an expletive, deleted
