FUR IS DEAD
- Beautiful People Saving Beautiful Animals

- Animals slaughtered for fur suffer miserable lives and excruciating deaths. Fur farmers use the cheapeast and crudest killing methods available, including suffocation, strangling, and anal electrocution. With these cruel killing methods, animals sometimes end up being skinned alive. There is no excuse for using the skins of abused animals when there are so many humane alternatives available.
The only bigger fashion victims are the animals.

Well, I'll tell you what I've done!
I have sent letters to the editors of my favourite magazines, explaining the the cruelty of the fur industry, informing tham about burberry, and giving advice on how readers can help!
It's really quite a simple task, and it only takes a few minutes!
Wanna give it a try? Go you!
Just read the "Letters" section of your chosen magazine, there should be an address you can send you letter to, or an e-mail address!
Otherwise, you can just visit their website, and get their contact info from there!
Then, the rest is easy! Just write your leter/ E-mail [remember to be respectful at all times, otherwise you will not be taken seriously! plus, nobody likes an ignorant person!]
I also sent an E-mail to Mary Coughlan, The Irish Minister for Agriculture, respectfully asking her to ban fur farming from Ireland [Yes!! It's happening right here! There are 4 fur farms in Ireland, that I know of so far].
This is also a very simple, quick and easy task, that takes no time at all, but is so effective!!
I explained th econditions that animals are kept in, how they are mistreated, and why it should be banned!
I would urge you to do the same!!
If you need guidlines or advice on writing letters/e-mails, don't hesitate to contact me, I will be glad to help.

Ditch the soccer T-shirts and sport an animal rights message instead! Use your trip to the store, the ball game, and anywhere else to proudly declare pro-animal messages.
Stuck in a jam? Give drivers something to read besides your license plate. Make that drive to work count: Put a bumper sticker (more than two is too many) on your car.
Leave a trail of leaflets wherever you go. Carry literature with you and leave it everywhere—at the laundromat, in waiting rooms, on the bus, or in dressing rooms, bookstores, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Never pass a bulletin board without tacking up a leaflet or poster. How much easier can it get?
Engage in button and sticker activism. Wear compassion on your sleeve (or backpack or hat). It’s amazing how effective simple activities, like strategically placing a GoVeg.com sticker or an “Ask me why I’m vegan” button on your jacket or backpack, can be. Quick and easy actions like these can help you get your message to dozens of people (or more!) every day. You’ll be amazed by the conversations that one little badge or sticker can start! It’s also a great way to meet like-minded people.
Speak out! Within earshot of other shoppers in the checkout line, talk with a friend about the television special that you saw on animal experimentation. Have loud conversations on the subway or bus about how great it is to be vegetarian. Be sure to carry literature with you so that when everyone around you starts asking questions, you can provide them with more information. People eavesdrop all the time—use their nosiness to animals’ advantage.
Make your refrigerator into a billboard for animals. magnets, posters, and stickers are always great things to put in the kitchen, especially if yours is often visited by nonvegans.
Set up an information table for an animal rights group. Contact them and they will most likely help out and provide you with everything you need! [Groups: Peta/Peta2- USA/ Europe, VIVA!- U.K, ARAN- I reland]
A great way to reach a large number of people is to set up an information table in a busy area of your town (try the local mall, concerts, street and craft fairs, middle schools, high schools, colleges, etc., and be sure to get permission). Stock your table with fliers and factsheets and get ready to amaze and educate passersby.
Donate animal rights videotapes to a video rental store.
Make a library display. Public libraries usually have prominently placed display cases that members can use to educate others about issues that concern them. A display with a collage or poster, some leaflets, and appropriate books from the library is sure to get attention and turn heads!
Plan a demonstration. Organizing a demonstration is a great way to help animals, and it’s not as scary or difficult as it may sound. In fact, demonstrations can involve as little as passing out leaflets and holding posters. Groups like ARAN have all the information that you’ll need to hold a successful demonstration.
Promote animal rights on cable-access TV. Expose thousands of people to the plight of animals on factory and fur farms, in laboratories and in circuses by organizing your own cable-access television show. It’s easy, and ARAN can supply you with all the information and tapes that you’ll need for free! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Use your connections. Members of local organizations can talk to their clubs about offering vegan meals at all functions. Church members can speak with pastors about veggie options at church dinners and fundraisers. Be sure to write letters to the editors of all magazines to which you subscribe on animal rights issues. Actions like these will take very little time but make a big difference for animals.
Host a vegan dinner party. Many people would lik
