Cosmetics Team Up with ARAN to Ban Fur Factory Farming in Ireland!
Date: Tuesday, February 7, 2012, 6:46
Dear Members & Supporters;
As many of you know, ARAN
released the findings of a new undercover investigation back in November
2011, just in time for submissions that the Government were seeking into
Irish fur factory farming. The evidence that we presented to the Minister
for Agriculture, Simon Coveney, clearly showed the need for these farms to
be shut down.
Behind the scenes we are busy lobbying Irish Ministers
and TDs, and since the launch of our new investigation, literally thousands
of emails and dozens of letters have been sent into the Department of
Agriculture calling for a ban on fur factory farming in Ireland without
delay. We have also rolled a
giant billboard across Dublin to garner support from the public and hit
Facebook with adverts that drove supporters to our campaign website
This week, we�re delighted to announce our latest
partnership with International cosmetics company,
LUSH Cosmetics. A two-week campaign
initiative will be running in their three Irish stores, from 6 February
right through until 20 February. We�re strongly encouraging all our
supporters and members to drop into your nearest LUSH store where you can
sign a postcard and take an educational leaflet to support ARAN�s campaign
to �Ban Fur Factory Farming in Ireland�.
TAKE ACTION: -
coming weeks we anticipate and believe that a decision will be made on the
future of fur factory farming in Ireland. We urgently need you to take
action between now and until that decision is made. Please visit your
nearest LUSH Cosmetics Store and ask for a postcard to sign and then be sure
to mail this right away.
Please log onto our campaign website
www.banfurfarms.ie and send one
email that will go out to over 160 Irish politicians in one click of a

writing, emailing, sending letters and doing whatever you can to speak out
against fur factory farming in Ireland. We can do only so much, but we can
do even more with your help and support.
Let's keep the momentum
�Fighting animal abuse across Ireland�
This is not the first time �LUSH Cosmetics International� has teamed up
with ARAN. Over the years we have partnered with them in our campaigns
against animal experiments, veggie promotion, supporting the campaign to
push the �Dog Breeding Establishments Bill Through�. They also attended
our demonstration against the Ward Union Hunt as legislation was going
through Dail Eireann back in 2011, and they also fundraised for ARAN
with a �Charity Pot� that raised vital, much needed donations to further
our work to fight animal abuse.
