Birmingham city council

Stop the sale of fur at the Frankfurt Market

    1. Petition by

      Ray Kirkham

      Kings Heath, United Kingdom

Fur farms have been illegal in England and Wales since the The Fur Farming (Prohibition) Act 2000 was introduced on moral grounds.

The fur trade is a gruesome one in which animals needlessly suffer in barbaric fur farms or die under horrific circumstances in traps. There is no excuse to accept these circumstances, there is no need for the fur trade, and is has no place in today's society, or in the city of Birmingham.

We are asking that Birmingham City Council actively discourage the sale of fur products on public land by requesting that the Frankfurt Market does not feature any stalls selling fur from this year onward.

Birmingham can and should be a fur-free city, and the city council have the power to help.

This campaign is supported by Birmingham Animal Action.

      Fur farms are unecessary and if illegal in the country the UK should not condone ither countries doing it.

      What right do we, as earthlings exactly the same as other animals, have to do as we please with animals that share the world with us?
