[CAFT-UK] National Anti-Fur March in London Sat Dec 1st + Anti Furweek





National Anti-Fur March & Rally

Saturday 1st December

Meet 12 noon, Belgrave Square, London SW1 (nearest Tubes Victoria, Hyde Park Corner or Knightsbridge)



There will be a National Anti-Fur March and Rally in London, on Saturday 1st December. After a rally in Cavendish Square, we will be marching around the Knightsbridge area of London, which is home to some of most notorious designers of fur, including Gucci, Versace, Fendi, Armani, Dolce and Gabanna, as well as campaign targets such as Escada, Joseph, Burberry, and of course we will be marching past Harrods, Europe's largest store, and the only department store in the UK still selling fur.



Unlike the rest of the UK where the fur trade has largely been stopped, London, and in particular the area around where the march will will take place, is still a major centre of the fur trade. Fur of all kinds is a common sight in the area both in the shop windows, and draped on pedestrians, tourists for the most part, but quite a few residents as well. London activists are fighting an uphill battle to finish the fur trade in the capital, this is a chance for the rest of us to show our solidarity.



Please bring placards, banners, friends and enthusiasm. We are discussing the route with the police, and the march will have official permission.



More details to come, but please keep the date free, and start planning transport.



National Anti-Fur Week

Saturday 24th the Saturday 1st December



The march and rally in London will be the culmination of National Anti-Fur week, which will be from Saturday 24th November to Saturday 1st December. During this week, we are asking groups and individuals to organise events, demos, info stalls etc in their own areas to highlight anti-fur week. More details to come, please let us know if you are planning anything so we can feature it on the website.



More details of both to come, but please start planning now.
