(Finland) Animal Rights Groups Utilise 'Citizen Initiatives' to Push Finnish Fur Ban

Animal rights campaigners are making heavy use of the new 'citizen initiatives' scheme to introduce a fur farm ban into Finland´┐Żs parliament. A report from the YLE news agency said this week that the 'fur farm-free Finland' group has already collected 42,000 signatures since the citizen initiative scheme became a law on 1 March this year.

Should the organisation be able to acquire 50,000 signatures of Finns that are opposed to fur farming, parliament will have to consider the group's legislative proposal.
