Ban Fur in Berkeley
Every year the fur industry confines and kills at least 30 million innocent rabbits, foxes, minks, and seals. The brutal, cruel treatment of these innocent creatures has no place in a liberal society that considers every individual's suffering.
That is why we are calling upon the Berkeley City Council to ban the sale of fur within Berkeley. These products of animal exploitation belong nowhere.
To the City Council: let's do this. Our mayor has courageously promised to "lead a movement to change the direction of our country." Let's start a trend of caring about everyone who can feel pain. Let's outlaw industries of needless cruelty. We---along with countless fur-bearing animals---are counting on you.

Animals need our help. Every year, millions are killed for fur. These animals are confined to tiny cages, suffer immense cruelty and neglect, and are killed, often by being shocked to death. No one—human or nonhuman—deserves any of those things. Make Berkeley the second city in the United States to ban the sale of fur. It’s only a start, but it will make a difference.
