      13 February 2006:
      International Day of Protest against Chinese Fur
      The fur industry is one of the world's cruelest, and China is the source of most of the world's fur products. In the absence of any legislation or government control, animals in the Chinese fur industry are subject to the most extreme forms of abuse. Investigations of fur farms in China have exposed shocking methods of trapping, transportation, confinement and killing. The species being used include not only typical sources of fur such as rabbits, foxes, minks and raccoons, but also domestic dogs and cats, whose furs are often being deliberately mislabeled and exported as fur from other species. More than 40 million animals are killed each year for their fur.

      For more information on the Chinese fur industry please refer to the these websites:

      In protest of China's reluctance to act against the horrific treatment of animals in its fur industry, an international day of protest will take place on Monday, 13 February 2006 in front of Chinese embassies and consulates worldwide. Organizations and individuals from all over the world are invited to join this initiative. Please pass on the call, join an existing vigil, or organize one in your area or country. Wearing black is recommended.
