Dear Sir/Madam,

Investec Ltd, South Africa: Please go fur free on all your properties and stop making money from the cruel and senseless fur trade!

    2. Petition by

      Dr M.E Wilhelm

      Kensington, South Africa

INVESTEC LTD. IS THE LANDLORD OF ERICH FISCHER FURRIERS, a fur shop in Johannesburg.

Despite public opposition to Erich Fischer Furriers in particular and the fur trade in general, Investec ltd. will NOT take an ethical stand against fur trading.

Wearing fur is an immoral "fashion statement" that does not justify the harm inflicted on precious animals and the environment. Millions of wild animals are farmed and killed in horrendous conditions for no real purpose.

EVERY PERSON SIGNING THIS PETITION FINDS THE SALE OF REAL FUR FOR FASHION DESPICABLE. THEY REQUEST THAT INVESTEC BANS THE SALE OF REAL FUR ON ITS PROPERTY.

INVESTEC, IT IS ASTONISHING THAT A COMPANY THAT CLAIMS “MORAL STRENGTH” AS ONE OF ITS CORE VALUES IS ASSOCIATED WITH ONE OF THE MOST IMMORAL INDUSTRIES ON THIS PLANET!

 

THERE IS GLOBAL DISAPPROVAL AND A TREND TO END THE CRUEL AND SENSELESS FUR TRADE!

INVESTEC DO THE RIGHT THING AND JOIN THIS INTERNATIONAL TREND. GO FUR-FREE ON YOUR PROPERTIES.

      Fur should be banned, it is cruel senseless and abhorrent to anyone with any sensitivity to the suffering of animals. There is no justification to take the life of a sentient being, who like you or I wishes to live. For the sake of greed and profit and the vanity of the fickle minded, animals suffer terribly and are killed for their fur. It is an anchronism of a bygone age which should be consigned to history forever. Time to ban fur. Time for retailers to do the right thing and stop selling fur.

      I will expose to the public the atrocity of Fur Farm practices. As long as you use fur to decorate your fashions, you are complicit with horrific animal abuse that is considered 'standard practice' by fur famers.

      Watch the video if you don't know what I'm talking about, please: http://www.peta.org/videos/a-shocking-look-inside-chinese-fur-farms/.

      Fur farming practices are a form of 'ritual torture.' Ritual torture of animals and children, who cannot speak for themselves and cannot seek help, is the most heinous of crimes.

      As a fashion designer, you represent all that is good about free enterprise. Yet you are an accomplice to animal torture.

      Being linked to animal torture is no different than being linked by to using slave and child labor to manufacture your clothing.

      Please announce you will no longer use fur in your fashion lines.
