National Anti-Fur March and Rally -
Saturday 17th October -

Meet 12 noon, Belgrave Square, London, W1. (Map)

Last year over 400 activists took part in the National Anti-Fur March in London, the biggest anti-fur march for many years, see here for the report. Let's make this year's march bigger and even better.

Although the farming and trapping of animals of animals for their fur has now been outlawed in this country, it is still legal to import and sell fur which has been produced using these same horrific methods.

This year the march will once again take place around Knightsbridge in London, which continues to be a major centre of the fur trade. In this fashionable part of London, there are dozens of shops selling fur of all kinds. The march will take us past many of these shops such as Fendi, Gucci and Armani, as well as campaign targets such as Escada and Joseph, and not forgetting Harrods, the only department store in the UK which still sells fur.

London activists are out all year round campaigning against this trade, this march will be a chance for us to show our solidarity with them, and our determination to see this trade ended once and for all.

Please start making travel plans now, and we hope to see you in London on October 17th.

National Anti-Fur Week - Saturday 17th - Saturday 24th October

The Anti-Fur March also marks the beginning of National Anti-Fur Week, which is organised each year by CAFT.

During Anti-Fur week we are asking campaigners across the country to do at least one action against the fur trade, whether it's a protest outside a shop in your area which sells fur, or maybe a street stall to give out information to the public about the horrors of the fur trade and how they can stop it.

Contact us for more details, we can supply leaflets, posters and other materials. We may also be able to put you in contact with others in your area who are taking part. Also if you let us know what you are doing for Anti-Fur Week, we can publicise it on the website and maybe get more people involved.
