Back! And what’s next…

Due to personal reasons, I have had to take time off from fighting this cause and unfortunately have not been able to campaign on this matter as vigorously as I have hoped. But there is not one day that goes by when I do not think about what is happening and the urgency of the matter.

I am very thankful to all those who have replied, who have written in to request for the reports, and who have sent in your petitions. For those who have emailed me for the reports, I will reply very soon. Please check your SPAM folder as some email providers may treat it as spam.

We are still collecting petitions on the website. It is ongoing. The fight continues!

Announcement #1

Have you signed this petition yet?

KIM BASINGER TO TOP DESIGNER WILLIAM TANG: CRUEL FUR IS OUT OF STYLE

“Actor Kim Basinger has sent a letter on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Asia to leading Hong Kong designerWilliam Tang urging him to pledge not to use fur — including fur trim — in his collections. Basinger’s letter is accompanied by a PETA DVD that documents the widespread misery suffered by animals used in the fur industry…” Read more.

Announcement #2

Please continue to support Animal Saviors. I have recently been in touch with Peter Steele who is currently busy working on a new website for Animal Saviors, in preparation for the Animal  Saviors Unite Campaign. Here is a brief write-up from him with future plans:

“Whilst the awareness we have created in our first 18 months has exceeded all expectation, the horrific live skinning continues, so as part of the Animal Saviors Unite Campaign” we are going into China.  Our rationale for doing so and how we’ll be addressing the issues in China will be contained on the new Website.

Essentially, there are 4 areas in which we will be seeking help:
1.            Awareness.
2.            Investigation.
3.            Financial.
4.            Sending some email letters (pro forma letters supplied) the Campaign…”

We hope to hear more from him very soon!

Announcement #3

What is next? The next two months will be completely dedicated to sorting out the petitions we have received so far and to continue to write letters/raise awareness. We will continue to keep everyone updated with ongoing campaigns by like-minded organisations and post information on petitions related to the anti-fur campaign. In addition, we will also work toward developing a systematic and sustainable plan for next year’s campaign. Let’s make 2010 a fur-free year!
