London Fashion Week Protests Make Global News!
Sep 20, 2017 — Hey everyone!
Our three day protest outside of London Fashion Week could not have gone better. At our peak we had about 250 + protesters and I feel so inspired by everyone's passion and conviction for this campaign. Through our protests we managed to get into The Mirror, The Metro, The Evening Standard, The Daily Mail, The New York Times, The Telegraph and The Independent.
We were also on prime time television in Holland, America, Australia and New Zealand as well as making the news in Israel and BBC News here in London. Thousands of people saw our protests in person and the amount of support we have received has been overwhelming.
Here’s an interview I did with The Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/fashion/london-fashion-week/wanted-make-bold-statement-fur-protesters-hit-london-fashion/
& here's a great article in support of our campaign: http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/london-fashion-week-fur-animal-rights-protestors-a7952046.html
To keep the pressure on please keep sharing the petition far and wide and commenting on the social media pages of the British Fashion Council asking them to ban fur - we can do this! There are nearly quarter of a million people backing this campaign and I truly believe we can all make progress for the animals together if we keep pushing.
