Had this through from friend and animal buddy Mark (Glover) at Respect For Animals.
Have put this on the site as it is very important action against fur farming; and 1 Million signatures need to be obtained during the next year for EU action on this citizens initiative. This can only be signed by citizens of the EU; so if you are one of them, please do it and pass on the link to all your contacts.
Please note – ONLY EU CITIZENS can sign this – here is the citizens initiative / petition link:
Fur Free Europe | Eurogroup for Animals
ACT NOW FOR A FUR FREE EUROPE
Animals on fur farms live in intense confinement, in row upon row of small barren cages. They suffer from self-mutilation, infected wounds, missing limbs and cannibalism. Fur farming contravenes even the most basic concept of animal welfare.
The European Citizens’ Initiative “Fur Free Europe” calls on the EU to:
- Ban fur farms
- Ban farmed fur products from the European market
Be part of achieving history!
Act now by adding your name to the Initiative.
This is not just a petition. Once we reach 1 million validated signatures, the European Commission is obliged to respond and take action.
