Denmark wants to prevent Israel to be Fur free!
The bill for a total ban on fur trade in Israel will be voted on in the Israeli parliament on September 2nd.
This influential bill is being put into jeopardy by the extreme lobbying of the fur industry.
They are demanding of the Israeli Minister for Trade to fight the bill and without his backing the bill can not be voted in.
Over 85% of Israelis, who want to see the fur trade gone from Israel, are seeing their efforts sabotaged by this conflict of interests, and the intense lobbying of the fur industry from other countries as well. To make matters worse, the Trade Minister, Benjamin Ben-Eliezer has caved in to the fur industry's demand that he votes against the ban, thus becoming against it.
The Danish government with Minister of Foreign Affairs Lene Espersen in front are doing everything that the law not being implemented to protect the Danish fur breeders.
None Danish parties should defend the unethical fur industry when the entire 85% violated the law by last year's controls, although the requirements are in themselves quite insufficient to ensure the animals are good conditions. On farms get animals allowed to go with large open wounds or lying dead in cages with live fur. It is perfectly understandable that Israel does not want anything to do with this business.
Please watch the video and see the extreme cruelty of the animals.
Please send a letter to Israel’s Minister for Trade telling him that you support this bill and that passage of this ban is vital to the innocent animals in the fur trade and to worldwide public opinion of Israel!
