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 are now calling for months of action in autumn and winter 2018.

 

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-braki

ng, 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 2018 – 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 beeing 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. For autumn 2018 we ask everybody again to join our coordinated protests, especially at 2nd and 3rd of november for the International action weekend against Escada’s furtrade:

  • 31.08.-01.09.2018: Days of action to start the autumn protest against Escada
  • 02.11.-03.11.2018: International action weekend against Escada´s furtrade
  • 20.12.-24.12.2018: Winter protests against Escada´s furtrade
