TO READ ALL OF THE ACTION ALERTS IN ENGLISH
A special thanks to
groups in other countries that supported our campaign!
in January 2011 Escada SE completely stops using any real-fur. This announcement
was circulating in the industry sector. After being asked Frank Elsner, the
representative for press and business communication confirmed it to the Escada-Campaign
on October, 15th.
Now that the company decided to also stop using rabbit
fur and Karakul (persian lambfur) the demands of the Escada-Campaign towards the
company are fulfilled and the campaign is finished successfully! Therefore we
call for a stop of all planned protests. Thanks to everybody who took part in
the campaign in the past by doing actions or supporting it in other ways! Read
Stop the fur trade!
Since October 2007 the luxury company
ESCADA had been the focus of an animal rights campaign by the Global Network
Against the Fur Industry. The campaign was against the sale of real fur products
by the ESCADA group.
Products made from animal fur are a part of
contemporary society´s system of animal exploitation, which must be ended
through emancipatory practices.
Violence against animals on "fur farms",
the commercial animal exploitation through the fur industry, produces suffering,
fear and death; yet the animal victims remain largely unheeded.
