London Anti-Fur Demos

/img/arc/furfreeharveynichols.jpg There are demos every Saturday at shops selling fur. Regular targets include Harvey Nichols, Harrods and Joseph, as well as international campaign targets Escada and Max Mara.

Possibly 12 midday - 4pm or later at Harvey Nichols 109 - 125 Knightsbridge, London, SW1X 7RJ. Nearest tube is Knightsbridge. Call 07432 294001. Placards and leaflets and will be available.

Animals used to make fur included mink, blue fox, silver fox, musquash, rabbit, beaver, wolf, coyote, chinchilla and squirrel.

Following a campaign in 2004, Harvey Nichols introduced an ethical fur free policy. However in September 2013 the department store chain decided to drop its fur-free policy. It is vitally important to take action on this, if Harvey Nichols continues to sell fur, other department stores and fashion chains are likely to follow. Please come along to support the protest, you can help whether you can spare just an hour or the whole afternoon. There are also protests at Harvey Nichols in other cities

World Rat Day

/img/arc/worldratday400.jpg Cavy Rescue, a small animal shelter, invites rat lovers to celebrate World Rat Day in the UK.

All true fans of the pet rat know that these dear, sweet animals deserve greater recognition and admiration, and that their image suffers from ignorance and unthinking prejudice.

World Rat Day can be a day to win back some respect to rats through positive promotion, or at the very least, it will be a special day to offer delicious treats and fun gifts to our pets, making some rats very happy and getting some cute photographs in the process!

To offer a home to a rat (or any other homeless animal) check the Animal Rescue section of Veggies Directory or Cavy Rescue.

World Day for Animals in Laboratories

http://wwail.noflag.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/xHeader21-1024x251.jpg.pagespeed.ic.X4Oh38Em8k.jpg

World Day for Laboratory Animals is a United Nations recognized day of international commemoration of the suffering and killing of millions of innocent sentient beings in laboratories throughout the world.

Campaigning organisations in the UK and across the globe, will mark World Day for Laboratory Animals, a time to reflect upon the pain and suffering caused to millions of animals all in the name of a fraudulent scientific practice - a practice that is not only is so cruel to the animals so horribly abused and killed by vivisectors but a practice that so cruelly gives false hope to those with illness and disease.

In 2015 the call is for local groups to join together in organising regional demos to mark World Day.

Barry Horne Memorial Actions

http://barryhorne.org/images/barryhorne.jpg Let us know if you are organising events at local labs, or elsewhere, to commemorate Barry's death on November 5th 2001, and for the animals.

5th November is the anniversary of the death in prison of fellow activist Barry Horne. Barry died in Long Lartin prison of liver failure, a direct result of three prison hunger strike protests against government policy on animal experiments.

To mark the day, please either organise an event or action dedicated to Barry, or dedicate your planned event or action to Barry's memory.

The event doesn't have to be connected with vivisection, Barry was an all round activist. He was a vegan, a hunt saboteur for many years, was convicted of trying to release a dolphin from an aquarium, attended demos against all forms of animal abuse.
