Huge Success for
Worldwide Fur Free Friday - Breaks All Existing Records!!
a record breaking 500 activists came together to take part in the local
rally for Worldwide Fur Free Friday. In another first, here was a second
action, a tabling on Shenkin Street. The number of global locations, also
broke all existing records; as the number of actions the world over reached
to about 200, bringing the worldwide participation to number in the tens of
thousands. An international cyber involvement was also set up for the first
time; enabling those that couldn't make it to an action in person.
The streets of Tel-Aviv were overflowing; as 500 of the public, carrying
posters depicting the millions of animals, often skinned alive in the fur
trade, walked from the meet-up point at Rabin center, to the long march
through the high streets and their classy shops that sell fur, to arrive at
Kikar ha'midina. Hundreds of people came from all over Israel, young, old
and families, many brought their furry friends (animals lucky enough not to
be among the dogs that are skinned alive for fur and sold to the
unsuspecting public via mislabeling!) The emotion was obvious as the well
inform participants, some with tears in their eyes, appealed to all not to
MK Ronit Tirosh attented the protest as well!
