Fur Demo Report 15/05/07

Fur Demo
Outside the Dept
For Agriculture

On the 15th of May, we held a demo outside of the Dept of Agriculture on Kildare St, Dublin. The demo highlighted the cruelty that occurs on Ireland’s fur farms and was a call to the Minister of

Agriculture to outlaw farming of animals for fur in the republic of Ireland.
The 15 activists handed out leaflets, took petitions, held a banner and posters and voiced facts about irish fur farms on a megaphone . For 2 hours, the public on Kildare St learned
about the horrible lives and deaths of the victimised minks and foxes on Ireland’s 6 fur farms.

At the end of the demo, we handed in petitions from the public asking the Minister of Agriculture to ban fur farms in Ireland. The Minister is the person responsible for issuing licences to the fur farmers.
The petition had 2650 signatures. Most of these were collected in the few weeks beforehand. This goes to show how much the public of Ireland doesnt want fur farming in Ireland.

We would like to thank AFAR who took the opportunity of this demo to hand in 250 signatures that they had collected, and also thank all the animal rights groups and people who supported us on the day.
