BELGIAN FUR RETAILER PELSLAND GOES BANKRUPT 07/27/2016

Veritable temple of fur in Belgium, Pelsland was declared bankrupt last month by the court of Antwerp. A part of the Belgian scene for 40 years, Pelsland's demise was supposedly down to an exceptionally mild winter, according to its director. However, according to Belgian Fur Free Alliance member GAIA, the reasons for the chain's bankruptcy go much deeper. In recent years there has been a marked decrease in global consumer interest in fur, motivated primarily by concern for ethics and animal welfare. Kopenhagen Fur, one of the world's leading fur auction houses, estimates that global production of mink fell from almost 72 million animals in 2015 to 52 million this year.

Activism

Animals deserve rights, regardless of how they taste or how convenient it is to experiment on them. Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have an interest in leading their own lives. They are not ours to use for food, clothing, experimentation, or entertainment.

As an activist, you can educate people in your community and positively affect their attitudes and lifestyles. You just need the desire to generate positive change and to believe that your voice and actions matter...
