National Anti-Fur Day Toronto 2020
February 8, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Come and join Fur Free Toronto and National Anti-Fur Day on February 8th from 1pm to 3pm as we join forces with cities across the country to educate and inform the public about the fur industry and urge them to not support the industry and join us in our actions in the future. We will be congregating at the intersection of Queen and Spadina in Toronto and will get activists to occupy all 4 corners of the intersection with Fur Free Toronto cards to distribute and copies of our petition to ban the sale of fur. We will have big heart shaped posters in addition to other signage and also do feel free to be creative and make your own with captivating messages about speciesism and having a heart and not wearing fur. If you are an artist and feel inclined, beautiful images of fur-bearing animals would be so powerful as well.
There is so much momentum globally with city, state and country-wide bans on the sale of fur, fur farming and trapping. No nonhuman should be commodified and turned into fashion decorations. In 2020, it is unnecessary and unjust and more and more humans are recognizing this. We must keep the pressure on the industry and corporations making a profit off of mass violence.
Let us disrupt speciesism and end violence against nonhumans, they need us all to stand in solidarity with them.
This is a nonviolent event in our words and actions so please do be mindful to do your best to keep calm while being unapologetic in your advocacy. We want to indeed address the urgency involved and capture the attention of their hearts and minds for the sake of the victims. If you feel things are escalating do walk away and take some time to breath and/or find one of the organizers who will make themselves known when we assemble.
Looking forward to seeing you all!
