Activists Go After Fur Industry
Fur Free Friday Across the Bay Area and Beyond
Along with Buy Nothing Day on the "busiest shopping day of the year", activists also targeted stores that sell fur and fur trim last Friday. In San Jose, activists paid a visit to Macy's Department Store at Valley Fair Mall, despite the resistance from managers and mall cops. Hundreds of flyers were passed out, and many people were educated on the barbaric industry of the fur trade. In Santa Rosa, activists converged outside Santa Rosa Mall, alerting shoppers with street theater and signs about the brutal slaughter of seals for their fur and how this ugly trade relates to all fur-bearing animals. In Walnut Creek, BeBe shoppers learned that fur garments come at a huge cost to the animals. In San Francisco, 50 activists converged on Neiman Marcus in Union Square to denounce the fur trade and educate the public.
