Campaign: Let’s stop ESCADA’s fur trade


ESCADA´S FUR POLICY

After ESCADA was a target of international protests of animal rights activists from 2007-2010, the luxury fashion company declared to go furfree, but in 2017 ESCADA started to sell real fur again. They offered clothes with fur of foxes and rabbits and other animals again in their shops and online. As ESCADA ist ignoring every attempt to talk about their new fur policy Animal rights organisations started protests and days of action with dozens of actions in winter 2017/18 and three action weekends with dozens of protests in serveral different cities such as Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Frankfurt, Vienna, Rome and Milano. The Offensive gegen die Pelzindustrie is now calling for Days of Action on 22nd and 23rd of february.

 

Every year the fur industry kills more than 50 million animals all over the world. Most of them are held captive for months in cages in so called fur farms. In late autumn they are killed through neck-braking, genital electrocution or gas. Minks, foxes, chinchillas, martens, racoons, rabbits, lambs and other animals are the victims of the bloody fur trade. Being back with selling real fur, Escada is one of the few companies in todays shopping streets that still make profit with the fur of animals.  That´s why we ask everybody to participate in the protests against Escada´s furtrade again to demand the returning to an indefinite furfree policy to the full extent.

 

 

DAYS OF ACTION FEBRUARY 2019 – LET’S STOP ESCADA’S FUR TRADE

For many years animal liberation organizations have been campaigning against companies that sell real fur. Many companies like Zara and Peek und Cloppenburg stopped selling fur after being targeted and experiencing public pressure like demonstrations and other actions. This way of putting pressure on the companies is a successful strategy to convince them of a furfree policy. Loosing the places to sell fur puts the fur industry in real trouble. After successful Days of Action in autumn and winter 2018 in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy, as well as protests in between, the next days of action are settled: The Offensive gegen die Pelzindustrie (OGPI), the german coalition against the fur industry, calls for action in February 2019. On 22nd and 23rd of february we ask everybody again to join our coordinated protests.

 

ESCADA was a target of international protests of animal rights activists from 2007-2010, so the luxury fashion company declared to go furfree. But in 2017 ESCADA started to sell real fur again. They offer clothes with fur made from foxes, rabbits and other animals again in their shops and online. And they ignore every attempt to communicate about their new fur policy. So we have to keep protesting in front of ESCADA´s shops and online.
