IDA’s 2012 Fur-Free Friday demonstrations in your area
Animal Protection Norway and Network for Animal Freedom reveals the new horror pictures from Norwegian fur farms. Fur industry has received numerous attempts to “improve animal welfare.” Nevertheless, we can for the fourth time since 2008 reveal extensive animal cruelty on Norwegian fur farms.
A Government Committee is now considering (2012-2013) the industry should be prohibited in Norway. Fur farming can never be consistent with good animal welfare. We therefore expect that the government will start arranging fur industry.
In summer and autumn, the two animal protection organization made unannounced inspections of 24 fur farms from Troms in the north to Agder in the south. Many thousands of pictures and several hours of video documentation from fur farms show that mink and fox suffering on Norwegian fur farms every day.
Over the last twenty-six years, Fur Free Friday has grown to become the largest animal rights demonstration of the year. Don’t miss your opportunity on November 23, the day after Thanksgiving, to join with thousands of activists worldwide for this important international day of action! Please check out our 2012 list of events to find a demonstration in your area.

fur belongs on whom it was born,
not by the vain and frivolous,
