Fur Free Friday is
one of the Anti-Fur Society’s efforts to reach people around the globe to
bring consciousness to consumers who may have no idea of the immense
cruelty they are supporting. We are against the use of any materials
derived of animal product, including leather, down, and silk . Please join
us in this effort.
First we will meet
at Gartenhaus Furs (7101 Wisconsin Ave, Bethesda, MD) and Millers Furs.
Next we will march to Petsmart (6800 Wisconsin Avenue
Bethesda, MD 20815) to protest their use of fur, feathers and other things
taken from animals to make toys and accessories. Both locations are
convenient to Bethesda Metro.
provide you with signs, Anti-Fur Society leaflets and Evolve for Animals’
new leaflet on Veganism. This will be a very peaceful protest. A megaphone
will be available for anyone who feels moved to do peaceful speaking on
behalf of the animals.
Consumers need to know that the use
of fur is not only immoral but also totally unnecessary. The fur industry
is one of the most cruel, barbaric and superfluous industries in the
world. They do not have ONE leg to stand on, not only because of the
superior faux materials available but also because they cannot even claim
that it is for human good or nutrition. To name a few, animal carcasses
are dumped in the ground, polluting our waters, and the deadly chemicals
used to tan the skins are greatly damaging to the environment.
please take advantage of this opportunity to come by and speak up for the
many billions of defenseless fur animals who have already been
slaughtered, but also for the many millions who are being slaughtered just
as we speak.
Please do not think that your voice will not make a
difference, because it does. If you are able to convince one person to
stop using fur, you have already saved hundreds of animals. Why? That same
person will go on convincing others. This is the same as many links on a
chain, that keep growing. Even if you save only ONE animal, it may not
seem a lot to many, but it will mean the world for that one animal. Think
