Victims of domestic abuse are increasingly being forced to sign for credit, by their domineering and threatening partners, to finance abusers gambling, drug, drinking and dating habits – Citizens Advice Bureau suggests (2014).

Exercising financial control over someone or coercing them to get into debt is becoming an ever more common method of abuse.

An increasingly large number of women, have been being forced to take out loans, including payday loans, and then hand the money over to their partner. The also have access to their own working salaries restricted or completely seized by the abusive partner for his own personal disposal resulting in women having to beg and seek help from family members and friends for the basics such as food gas and electricity. In a report, published to coincide with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Citizens Advice warned that financial abuse was dramatically on the rise.
Almost three quarters of Citizens Advice workers, who spoke to those reporting financial abuse, said the victim had been forced by their abuser to take out credit and/or hand over their earnings under threat of violence.

You are NOT ALONE…………………………………..

Womens AID in the UK have been campaigning extensively to have all forms of abuse that are “non physical” (and as such largely unlegislated to date) recognised in law. The campaign has been met with a landmark achievement of accepting that Coercive control is at the heart of domestic abuse and that behavior of this nature is to be included in the serious crime acts.

Polly Neale, Director of Women’s Aid was reported to comment:

“Victims can be frightened of the repercussions of not abiding by someone else’s rules. Often they fear that violence will be used against them, or suffer from extreme psychological and emotional abuse.”
“Being subjected to repeated humiliation, intimidation or subordination can be as harmful as physical abuse, with many victims stating that trauma from psychological abuse had a more lasting impact than physical abuse.”
“Perpetrators will usually start abusing their victim by limiting her personal freedoms, monitoring her every move, and stripping away her control of her life; physical violence often comes later.”

Understanding what is and what is not abuse:

The Duluth Model is the most common batterer intervention program used globally to assess domestic abuse.

It is based in feminist theory positing that “domestic violence is the result of patriarchal ideology in which men are encouraged and expected to control their partners”.

The Domestic Abuse Intervention Project was the first all encompassing multi-discipline program addressing issues of domestic violence. Conducted in Duluth, Minnesota in 1981 and coordinated the actions of a variety of agencies dealing with domestic conflict, The Duluth model curriculum was developed by a “small group of activists in the battered women’s movement” with battered women and men as subject matter. The program has now become the model for western jurisdictions who seek to clearly identify and deal legislatly in prosecuting and protecting women from domestic violence.

The feminist theory underlying the Duluth Model is that men use violence within relationships to exercise power and control. According to the Duluth Model, “women and children are vulnerable to violence because of their unequal social, economic, and political status in society.”

Treatment of abusive men is focused primarily on re-education, as “we do not see men’s violence against women as stemming from individual pathology, but rather from a socially reinforced sense of entitlement.”

The program’s philosophy is intended to help batterers work to change their attitudes and personal behavior so they would learn to be nonviolent in any relationship.

HANNIBAL FINALE – Extended 12″ Skinned Alive REMIX – The Full Story

Banner-explicit-WEB2 bYELLOW

HANNIBAL FINALE – Extended 12″ Skinned Alive REMIX – The Full Story

After 3 months of preparation, near zero budget , we pulled the HANNIBAL anti-Fur video together.

With fantastic energy and support throughout the production team to get this message out there it finally all came together in August in our Hannibal Finale to the Anti Fur awareness campaign. Our hope is that the sheer volume of content we have created both here in London and in the inside footage from Fur Farms in Norway, that we will be able to continue a long and widespread awareness campaign over the unethical conduct of the Fur Industry as it continues to drive and brain wash young peoples minds that they “simply cannot be any one of importance, or exist in modern society without having to own a real fur”.

The Media machine of the Fashion Industry has accelerated it’s sexualization of the image of Fur to expand on the financial gains of opening markets and it’s working. Young Women we have questioned in fur have openly commented that they feel a real fur enhances their sexuality and standing, makes them more attractive to the opposite sex and more accepted in high society.

The Hannibal song has been criticized for appearing to be rapey or degrading to women. but on what grounds ? lyrical content ? At FISHINABOX we take all criticism on board and check whether it is constructive and valid or whether it is just a knee jerk reaction to controversial issues.

So we asked around in Hoxton and Stratford on a few Saturday afternoons and evenings on the Bar circuit (before people got past their first drink) about what the image of a girl in a fur conjured up for them ? What we got back was right on the money with the Hannibal track:  “Trashy / Street Trash / Prostitute  / Thick / Wanabee / The Kardashian’s but with an empty purse / a one night stand ” , When asked would they see a girl in a denim or a leather jacket in the same way, (aside form the jokes that Mark after a couple of pints would shag a lamp post) the response was no, its the fur that makes them “game” .These responses were being bandied around by young males in East London.

The Bottom line ? From the responses we got back overall, HANNIBAL is not “rapey” but it does capture the clear issue of concern, that the status of a Women in a fur coat when compared to one without is degraded and not enhanced unless as an object.

The Fashion industry angle that “Fur is sexy is also true it seems, but sexy in what way ? It is true Fur does make you more appealing, but only as a free ride on the village bicycle.  What did anyone expect ? Was the “Sex” in wearing a fur ever going to be anything more than a pornographic statement ? After all The fashion rags are selling an image of objectification and that is exactly what wearing a fur creates. Not class, not luxury, just the image of a street hooker for free. When you wear a fur out on the town is this how you want to be perceived ? Are these perceptions acceptable ? absolutely not , but the glamorization of fur has created that image not the minds that have read and seen the ad campaigns and soaked it in. The fault lies with the fur industry and it’s marketing campaign.

After such socially ground breaking steps in Animal Rights legislation and Women’s rights and feminism over the last 40 years, we hit the new millennium and Empathy and Responsibility have been thrown out of the window. This is the age of the Selfie and in the age of the Selfie, shallow plastic painted faces in pornographic skins ripped of the bodies of beautiful wild animals while still screaming is the new “black”.

The ability to think for ourselves culturally has been “sold” to our mobile phones, news rags, and plastic passion icons of no substance. The evidence is everywhere, from what you see tottering along in Knightsbridge in heels that cost more that a studio flats monthly rent, through to even the pitiful egotistical choices for candidates in the US Presidential election. The Social and Political spheres of the western world are no longer right wing or left wing but self wing.

Humanity is heading for a fall, the Fashion Carnival has made a mockery out of people and a tragedy out of the animal it persecutes. but for what ? to satisfy one simple thing: greed.

We hope that Hannibal, whether you find the content offensive or not, will get this message to you.

Do not degrade yourself and sacrifice your independent ethical choice, morality, or true beauty as sentient beings by engaging and buying into the base, immoral and pornography of the Fur Industry. Just say NO to FUR.

Footage shot in side Fur Farms in Norway and used by kind permission of Nettverk for dyrs frihet/ Anti Fur Society

Filming HANNIBAL we basically only had enough budget to get the film studio blood (V) , pull together some costumes and the petrol to get to location. When we reached out to the Fashion Community to fund / donate / support this campaign no one wanted to touch it. responses over ” it’s fashion suicide for our business to be involved in such a campaign/ we have been told to ask you to leave,  through to , you don’t understand the power of the Fur industry, just walk away”

We were able though to secure the good support and to work once again with the Animal Rights Group “FBI Animals” (best known for the weekly Saturday Anti Fur and Anti Fois Gras protests in Knightsbridge) to produce the video.

The Story line follows a play off with a hunt and trap group coming across a wild tribe, they are trapped hunted and skinned for their fur coats then discarded. Simple story . Basically the story of forest and field mammals all over western Europe, US, Canada and Asia.

We have placed into the story some symbolism worth mentioning to better understand the depth in the story:

CARNIVAL MASKS: Carnival and Circus Masks were used on the catwalk to parody the fake plastic image of the Fashion Industry  and its endless re-branding of bling and glitz. This symbolism is aimed at the shallow self wing lifestyle that the industry and fur products appeal to.

MASKS IN GENERAL: FISHINABOX continues to use the symbolism of the mask to focus people on what is being presented in the story and not the people or players behind the set. There is nothing, no self , no personality beyond the story. The Mask has always been, throughout all tribal culture, used as a way to project the character carved into the Mask and to loose the person animating it from behind. Religious and ceremonial Masks have been assigned with Magical transitioning qualities throughout history.

UMBRELLAS: The Umbrella became a symbol of revolution during the Hong Kong Umbrella Revolution. Yellow Umbrellas were assigned significance as meaning “our home” and red for the blood of the downtrodden. The Umbrellas in the Hong Kong Protests were used as a wall to deflect tears gas and protect the demonstrators.

In the HANNIBAL video we use a giant Yellow Umbrella sail for the roof of the Fur Tribe home and the twirling Red Umbrella in the hands of Catwalk models, or, just discarded on the floor to symbolize the fickle disregard to the lives of the animals that had been killed for pelts.

NOTE: Previously FISHINABOX has also used this symbol as a defiance against the Japanese Whaling industry representing the spilt blood of Dolphins in the annual Taiji Cover Slaughter)

CATWALK SCENE: The Catwalk scene was included as it is the core image of anti-fur protesting. The trashing of Fashion Models, in Furs, with Blood stains stems back to the LYNX campaign in the early 1980’s where they pictured a woman in heels and fur coat leaving a trail of blood as she walked. The idea has been done many different ways but essentially around the same theme. It is not an original concept though is central to the subject matter of the storyboard hence it’s inclusion.

FIRE: Is used as a symbol of cleansing and cremation. In the Video the furs skinned off the Fur Tribe as set on fire and waved in a circle signifying Samsara the wheel of life and reincarnation. As they are turned in a circle the reference is that the Fur Tribe will be reincarnated and restored to life which is opposite of Humanities spiritual ideal that they will be able to leave the eternal cycle of reincarnation and achieve enlightenment and nirvana.

FUR TRIBE MAKE-UP: The Tribes make up were based around Native North and South American Amazonian and other Women strong warrior tribes.

MA’IINGAN (THE WOLF SPIRIT): The Wolf Spirit appears in line with First Nation Canadian Spiritual Beliefs of the Wolf as a Teacher, Mother Protector and Guardian and predictor of the future. Where the Wolf Spirit Dies so does it’s people. Ma’iingan being shown as a powerful Forest Dwelling Spirit captures the belief that in the end the Fur Tribe will be victorious over the plague of endless hunting. rape and destruction. Ma’iingan holds the anti fur placards and beats them on the ground to drum support from us the people to stop the crimes of the Fur Industry.

The Notes:

Track 01 – HANNIBAL

Acoustic Wordsmiths Urban Rap track on Fur , back in Fashion Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

Real Fur,. It;s everywhere again ! Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ? The reality is FAUX FUR never really looks that great after a few weeks and a rainstorm, If your trim still has its bright eyed and bushy tailed look,. its most likely real fur,. pretty sick stuff,. with a global growing skin alive policy,. back handers to hide sources and material tagging to get round import restrictions, elite advertising and profiteering Real Fur is the symbol of absolute ethical and social decadence.

When people wear a jacket with a FUR trim, you are making the clear statement: “Hey i’m really cool with that, and cares about where it comes from as long as i look pretty”..but are you ? really, what kind of person would be ?

Lyrics:
Rabbit Fur , Dog Fur, why not skin a cat fur ?
thought you had the quality but you have got the crapfur
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,
on your Bush…x2
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,

Been down the fur shop wax your muff and all that,
but you fucking came back with a fluffy fur hat
I seen a poster offering a reward for you lost cat
whats the reward for fur on the back ?
what if you were killed for your fur coat ?
seen that PETA advert where that bloke
picks up a pole and wacks her round her boat
strips off her back spreads blood like a moat

There’s no difference between fido and your fucking mink hat
And if you think there is then you’re truly a twat
Now stand in line as I give you all a slap

Good News – We found your lost kitten / Puppy ! Bad News is your wearing it !

Track 02 – Fur Trade (NORDICS) Not FAMILY FRIENDLY

02. European Fur Farms Exposed

sales figures on fur in the UK have sky rocketed through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

The Fur Farming prohibition act was passed in 2000,. to prohibit the keeping of animals soley or primarily for the slaughter value of their fur.

Prior to the ban there were 11 fur farms in the UK producing 100,000 mink skins for luxury retail consumption a year. A public consultation in 1998 found there was overwhelming public support to end the practice in the UK.

So if there are no Fur farms in the UK who’s producing the fur that finds itself on to the UK high street ?

Cheap trims and hoods are classically imported from Asia or via Us markets. due to the rise in cost of producing fake fur, cheap real furs such as dog, raccoon in in the toy market cat fur have replaced fake as the main staple supply.

The fine mink and chinchilla furs favored in luxury London retailers are being for the most part supplied via Denmark and Norway. Both these countries insist their fur production is ethical.

A series over undercover recordings and video footage within the Nordic fur industry presents a distressing picture that appears out of step, in every way with this public statement. Please consider the impact of allowing this industry to continue unchallenged.

The following recording presents the experiences Animals for Fur go through, from the initial confinement leading to the knawing of limbs, starvation eating of excrement, and other , normal , physiological disorders caused for confinement. through to the execution of animals, the removal of skins and disposal of the carcasses as waste or by product.

Act    I – Confinement

Act   II – Execution

Act III – Defilment

Our thanks for support to make this production possible : Nettverk for dyrs frihet/Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge and the Anti Fur Society

Track 03 – China Anal Electrocution and Skin Alives

03. China Fur Farms (Main Retail Supply) (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

Right,
this recordings on China.
This was taken in Chinese Fur Farms using a skinned Alive practice. (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

They skin the fur off the animals alive.That’s for the trims and then for full pelts what they do is rather than damage the fur they capture the animal and they anally electrocute it with electrodes so they remove the fur without and damage to the fur and word is that the meat goes to pet food so at least there is some sort of by product.

It goes back into the pet food chain, whereas with some European furs they just, they just dump it for rubbish ,. ..

it goes back into the pet food chain so there is some by product but it’s a cruel process, here’s the recordings

Western demand for cheap fur product.
this demand has created a multi billion dollar industry, animal theft, and an explosion of the fur farming in china. The industry is unregulated* and many of the animals processed for fur have been found still wearing pet collars.
Fur, such as dog raccoon and cat are being processed at a rate of over 100,000 pelts a week and have last year passed the 5 million animal mark yet despite this demand continues unchecked and unchallenged.
Stores have been outed as labeling cheap fur products as fake and as recently as last week, a leading high street store in Covent Garden Store was forced to remove 4 products following an oversight on labeling. Most furs for sale in the UK are being sourced from the cheap fur unregulated network and purchasers are unaware of the origin of their product believing them to be very good fakes.

This audio recording documents the anal electrocution and skinning alive of dogs and raccoon’s for the westerns fur trim and hoods market

*Legislation against Cruelty has been drafted in 2009 but sidelined due to financial implications of applying the law though the main fur regions such as HeiBei have released Public statement that they are ethical.

Track 04 – London Protest and OUTRO (Hannibal Insrumental)

This track is the closing Outro to the Anti Fur campaign Awareness E.P.
The recording captures some protest action in London Earlier in 2015 along with an Instrumental Version of Hannibal.

The protest footage was taken in Knightsbridge, London in 2015

Take a leaflet,
Take a leaflet,
if {UNNAMED Leading London store} were to attempt to produce fur in the UK there would face a wrath of prosecution. It’s an absolute scandal that {UNNAMED leading London Store} continues to sell products of extreme cruelty.

Take a leaflet
Please
take a leaflet

This animal has been skinned alive on a fur farm in China, to make a bit of fur on a bobble hat.
Its all pain, human animals, non human animals, we all feel pain in the same way,.

Its not good for us that this is happening, very bad for the human soul,.
this is what {UNNAMED Leading London store} are selling.

Track 02 – Fur Trade (NORDICS) Not FAMILY FRIENDLY

02. European Fur Farms Exposed

sales figures on fur in the UK have sky rocketed through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

The Fur Farming prohibition act was passed in 2000,. to prohibit the keeping of animals soley or primarily for the slaughter value of their fur.

Prior to the ban there were 11 fur farms in the UK producing 100,000 mink skins for luxury retail consumption a year. A public consultation in 1998 found there was overwhelming public support to end the practice in the UK.

So if there are no Fur farms in the UK who’s producing the fur that finds itself on to the UK high street ?

Cheap trims and hoods are classically imported from Asia or via Us markets. due to the rise in cost of producing fake fur, cheap real furs such as dog, raccoon in in the toy market cat fur have replaced fake as the main staple supply.

The fine mink and chinchilla furs favored in luxury London retailers are being for the most part supplied via Denmark and Norway. Both these countries insist their fur production is ethical.

A series over undercover recordings and video footage within the Nordic fur industry presents a distressing picture that appears out of step, in every way with this public statement. Please consider the impact of allowing this industry to continue unchallenged.

The following recording presents the experiences Animals for Fur go through, from the initial confinement leading to the knawing of limbs, starvation eating of excrement, and other , normal , physiological disorders caused for confinement. through to the execution of animals, the removal of skins and disposal of the carcasses as waste or by product.

Act    I – Confinement

Act   II – Execution

Act III – Defilment

Track 03 – China Anal Electrocution and Skin Alives

03. China Fur Farms (Main Retail Supply) (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

Right,
this recordings on China.
This was taken in Chinese Fur Farms using a skinned Alive practice. (*See CONTENT note in footer.)

They skin the fur off the animals alive.That’s for the trims and then for full pelts what they do is rather than damage the fur they capture the animal and they anally electrocute it with electrodes so they remove the fur without and damage to the fur and word is that the meat goes to pet food so at least there is some sort of by product.

It goes back into the pet food chain, whereas with some European furs they just, they just dump it for rubbish ,. ..

it goes back into the pet food chain so there is some by product but it’s a cruel process, here’s the recordings

Western demand for cheap fur product.
this demand has created a multi billion dollar industry, animal theft, and an explosion of the fur farming in china. The industry is unregulated* and many of the animals processed for fur have been found still wearing pet collars.
Fur, such as dog raccoon and cat are being processed at a rate of over 100,000 pelts a week and have last year passed the 5 million animal mark yet despite this demand continues unchecked and unchallenged.
Stores have been outed as labeling cheap fur products as fake and as recently as last week, a leading high street store in Covent Garden Store was forced to remove 4 products following an oversight on labeling. Most furs for sale in the UK are being sourced from the cheap fur unregulated network and purchasers are unaware of the origin of their product believing them to be very good fakes.

This audio recording documents the anal electrocution and skinning alive of dogs and raccoon’s for the westerns fur trim and hoods market

*Legislation against Cruelty has been drafted in 2009 but sidelined due to financial implications of applying the law though the main fur regions such as HeiBei have released Public statement that they are ethical.

Track 04 – London Protest and OUTRO (Hannibal Insrumental)

This track is the closing Outro to the Anti Fur campaign Awareness E.P.
The recording captures some protest action in London Earlier in 2015 along with an Instrumental Version of Hannibal.

The protest footage was taken in Knightsbridge, London in 2015

ETHICAL FUR FARMING IN EUROPE – EXPOSÉ Focus on NORWAY

Banner-explicit-WEB3111

ETHICAL FUR FARMING IN EUROPE – EXPOSÉ Focus on NORWAY

The Fur campaign has got a lot of feedback from so called “Fur Lovers”,. Comments such as “Yeah sure, It’s out there, but the unethical stuff is over in China not here !” (Asian Fur Scandals Skinning Alive, Anal Electrocution – actually global export to Canada, South Korea and Arab States), “yeah yeah, Rabbits, Dogs and Cats oh my !,.” (but it doesn’t affect Europe right ?) and “I only wear High Furs, Guaranteed Ethically farmed”.

 FISHINABOX  decided to take a look into this feedback and do a little digging. A search and find mission to track back the Faro Fox and Mink high furs that are so favored by the “fashion elite and wanna bees” of  our Glamour Culture.

FISHINABOX wanted to understand what does it mean when you pop into stores like Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Joseph etc and the shop assistant says “It’s OK its Ethically Sourced…” What do they think is Ethical ? and does it meet expectations ? The mission was simple, look up the meaning of “Ethical” and sample test the industry to see if it meets expectations.

ETHICAL:being in accordance with the rules or standards for moral right conduct or practice“.  

What does Ethical mean to you ? look at the documented evidence below and then ask yourself the question.

Our research to chase “Ethical Fur Farming” has taken us to Norway, one of the main established bastions of the European Fur trade (after Denmark). Here are some of the Fur farms,. they seems to look just fine out here in the tranquil forest and mountain expanses, so let’s take a look on the inside track of the Ethical Fur Industry.

Engaging with the team on the ground: Nettverk for dyrs frihet/Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge via the Anti Fur Society to collect evidence from Norwegian Fur Farms.  Nettverk for dyrs frihet/Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge have been working tirelessly to gain access and document the Ethical Fur Trade in Norway we can now share the findings of the group to raise the question.

In all cases , All fur farms investigated contained the same conditions. Animals keep in dire confinement have resorted to gnawing their own limbs, attacking each other, neglected,, eating excrement when not feed, death and disease is unchecked and carcasses are left with living animals.

It goes on and on,.  Every farm every cage, every pen, the same story. This is where your Fur Trim comes from.

This is the little extra you get when you put the Fake Fur back on the rail and buy a real one. This is the result solely of YOUR action, YOUR purchasing power and the Fur Industry response “People want it, they demand it”,. do you demand this, really ?  There are 6,000 fur farms in the EU. The EU accounts for 63% of global mink production and 70% of fox production they exist because YOU want it !

Our busy globalized world is hard and fast and unrelenting on giving us all advice on what to eat , what to wear. Our Media feeds are constantly full of “spoon fed advice to pay up and shut up if you want to be someone, someone socially recognized”.

Endless exotic, sexualized eye candy to model ourselves on. Take a good look at what they represent, who benefits from this trade ? is it you ? or the select few ?

Decide whether you want to be associated with the hard and fast, buy now and think later culture or whether you want to abstain or even better help us turn the tide against it.

FAKE FUR SCANDAL: Is your FAUX FUR actually REAL FUR ? Street Action – Get Involved !

FUR04-ADD

I BOUGHT A FAUX FUR – IT LOOKS GREAT !

The reality is FAUX FUR never really looks that great after a few weeks and a rainstorm, If your trim still has its  bright eyed and bushy tailed look,. its most likely real fur

Real Fur production is on the rise,. 60% of the US fur import market is real fur coming in from Asia, unregulated and undercutting synthetic fake fur production costs by up to 70% ! These bargain fur price points are driven wholly by scale farming and the increasingly cruel cost cutting methods which involve now “normal” industry practices of skinning alive, anal electrocution, horrific conditions of confinement in cramp quarters filled with excrement , beating, suffocation, gas, and poisoning.

When you wear a jacket with a FUR trim, you are making the clear statement: “Hey i’m really cool with that, and who gives a shit about where it comes from as long as i look pretty”..but are you ? really, what kind of person would be ?

Do you ever feel like you’ve been cheated ?  

Do you support regulation and ethical farming world wide ? Feel you want to do something about it ? GET INVOLVED:

London ANTI-FUR Campaign – HARRODS HARVEY NICHOLS – Protest Tourism LONDON

Banner-explicit-WEB23

London ANTI-FUR Campaign – HARRODS HARVEY NICHOLS – Protest Tourism LONDON

Despite FUR farming being illegal in Britain, sales figures here in the UK are sky rocketing through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

There has been a History of Anti Fur Protest activity against Harrods from a number of Animal Rights Groups and Organizations. Most recently form 2005 to 2013 Anti Fur protesting at the Elite Store was being driven by Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade. In 2013 despite widespread public unrest, Harrods succeed in securing a court Injunction to effectively silence protest. The Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade has now turned there attentions to Harvey Nichols outlets.

In November 2014 Heidi Mary Porter, committed animal rights activist nudity protester and model, under her deep probing animal rights investigation operation “FBI animals” took up the banner and started protest again against Harrods Store policy of stocking Real Fur. Heidi and a growing movement of protesters can be seen outside Harrods Every Saturday  from 2 – 6.

With protest action visible at both Harrods and Harvey Nichols, Knightsbridge has become a Tourism “hotspot” Websites are showing the protest action with a 72% rating as excellent / very good / informative. Protest tourism has become a popular way over the last few years for travelers to enjoy of a very special kind of sightseeing.

The Harrods “I’d rather go naked than wear Fur” action specifically has now also been listed on “Trip Advisor” with over 3500 4 or 5 /5 star reviews out of 4900 reviews. A must see / be part of for Londoners and tourists alike.

http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowUserReviews-g186338-d188901-r158837867-Harrods-London_England.html

The objective of the protest is to aim for HARRODS to review their commitment to stocking FUR products, specifically due the increasingly cruel cost cutting methods of farming FUR which involve now “normal” industry practices of skinning alive, anal electrocution, horrific conditions of confinement in cramp quarters filled with excrement , beating, suffocation, gas, and poisoning.

Harrods argument to stocking Fur is based on what is referred to “Ethical Sourcing” and “Public demand”.

Fishinabox, the Anti Fur society, Nettverk for dyrs frihet and Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge have all investigated lines of supply back to “Ethical” Farms and found evidence of gross negligence. In all cases , All fur farms investigated contained the same conditions. Animals keep in dire confinement have resorted to gnawing their own limbs, attacking each other, neglected, eating excrement when not feed, death and disease is unchecked and carcasses are left with living animals:

http://www.fishinaboxrecords.com/ethical-fur-farming-in-europe-expose-focus-on-norway/

It is essential that these investigations are made and shared as publicly as possible. As with failing demand and outrage leading up to the 1990 closure of the Harrods Fur Department,, the strength of the anti-fur campaign was based on concrete evidence of mistreatment.

Why Harrods ? Perhaps by gaining the support of one one the oldest and most respected stores in London the message will filter down to the retail sector in general over the archaic practice of selling FUR.

Harrods , (according to “wikipedia” and wikipedia is always right about aristo-crap-tic long standing Globally renowned establishments) is an upmarket department store located on the Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus UbiqueAll Things for All People, Everywhere has proven to be a poison pill when faced with the controversy of FUR. 

Harrods is the only department store in Britain that has continued to sell FUR. (That’s DEPARTMENT Store, not, retail chain – retail is rolling out FUR without limitation) Their elitist example of the “acceptability” of fur and the “class tag” of Harrods goods creates an acceptance in high society of the allure to FUR products which is challenged in this protest. 

Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

FUR04 ADD

“The last few month’s has seen intense weekly protesting at Harrods Knightsbridge over the continued refusal to re-address policies on the stocking and sale of Real Fur.

Anti Fur demonstrators and supporters are highlighting a sickening trend in British high society to support base and embarrassing commercial practices, resulting in an increasing number of high profile celebrities distancing themselves from the store and its fur policy.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-3005053/SEBASTIAN-SHAKESPEARE-Lumley-takes-Harvey-Nicks-cruelty.html

Harrods was sold to the Qatari royal family’s investment company in 2010, (according to “wikipedia”)  despite being a “money honey-pot” and bastion of the foreign investor/ “buy to leave” culture; it still clings publicly to it’s Empirically British and upmarket status as London’s premier department store.

Harrod’s is located on the Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London.

The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus UbiqueAll Things for All People, Everywhere has proven to be a poison pill when faced with the controversy of FUR. 

Harrods is the only department store in Britain has re-instated and continues to sell FUR. (That’s DEPARTMENT Store, not, retail chain – retail is rolling out FUR without limitation)  Their elitist example of the “acceptability” of fur and the “class tag” of Harrods goods creates an acceptance in high society of the allure to FUR products which is challenged in this protest. 

Harrod’s steadfast resistance to public requests to take Fur off  the shelves have led to an ever escalating anti fur campaign. In February’s Protest Action demonstrators have been under pressure from Bullish Security following the relaunch of action under the banner of “I’d Rather go Naked than wear Fur”.

In March the protesters were served with an all guns blazing 16 page restriction order from the Royal Court of Justice (dated 2013) and have been under pressure from the Store security attempting to impose the conditions of the order. The Order relates to previous anti Fur campaigns against the Store which had been constant through 2005 to 2013.

The pressure continues to mount against Harrods and in turn Harrods increasingly are tightening the screws to silence public dissent.

Interest is also gathering in Media Circles to run a TV show to find Harrods a high quality Fake Fur solution to the dire bad publicity trap of continuing to stock so called “Ethical Fur” after the fur farms have been opened and exposed as a public disgrace.

As far as Harrods History goes, its been off the shelf since 1990 so why is it back on sale again at London’s exclusive retail establishment ? With new fur farming techniques being even more offensive than the 1990’s,. how do retail establishments get away with blood on their hands and wash their dirty laundry and exclusive price points around our Capital City ?

The reason for restocking Fur is simple – They do it because YOU demand it, because YOU no longer care about the ethics of fur farming…

To expose the store on so called “Ethical Fur Retail” – Heidi Mary Porter and the London Vegan Action Group, (animal rights activists and nudity protesters) outside Harrods EVERY Saturday Afternoon.

Get along to the DEMO on a Saturday afternoon and find out why the “fur is flying” again at London’s Premier Store.

I’D RATHER GO NAKED & FAMOUS THAN WEAR FUR – Every Saturday HARRODS

Banner-explicit-WEB3

I’D RATHER GO NAKED & FAMOUS THAN WEAR FUR – Every Saturday – HARRODS PROTEST AT LONDON’S EXCLUSIVE KNIGHTS BRIDGE RETAIL ESTABLISHMENT.

Despite FUR farming being illegal in Britain, sales figures here in the UK are sky rocketing through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

There has been a History of Anti Fur Protest activity against Harrods from a number of Animal Rights Groups and Organizations. Most recently form 2005 to 2013 Anti Fur protesting at the Elite Store was being driven by Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade. In 2013 despite widespread public unrest, Harrods succeed in securing a court Injunction to effectively silence protest. The Coalition to Abolish the Fur Trade is now targeting Harvey Nichols and FUR Retail.

In November 2014 Heidi Mary Porter, committed animal rights activist nudity protester and model, under her deep probing animal rights investigation operation “FBI animals” took up the banner against Harrods policy of stocking Real Fur and started protesting over Fur . Heidi and a growing movement of protesters can be seen outside Harrods Every Saturday  from 2 – 6.

The objective of the protest is to ask HARRODS to review their commitment to stocking FUR products. The protest group have raised concerns specifically around the increasingly cruel cost cutting methods of farming FUR which have been linked by Animal Rights groups to industry practices of skinning alive, anal electrocution, horrific conditions of confinement in cramp quarters filled with excrement , beating, suffocation, gas, and poisoning.

Harrods argument to stocking Fur is based on what is referred to “Ethical Sourcing” and “Public demand”.

Fishinabox, the Anti Fur society, Nettverk for dyrs frihet and Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge have all investigated lines of supply  for European stockists back to “Ethical” Farms and found evidence of gross negligence. In all cases , All fur farms investigated contained the same conditions. Animals keep in dire confinement have resorted to gnawing their own limbs, attacking each other, neglected, eating excrement when not feed, death and disease is unchecked and carcasses are left with living animals:

It is essential that these investigations are made and shared as publicly as possible. As with failing demand and outrage leading up to the 1990 closure of the Harrods Fur Department,, the strength of the anti-fur campaign was based on concrete evidence of mistreatment.

Why Harrods ? Perhaps the protest group believe that by gaining the support of one one the oldest and most respected stores in London the message will filter down to the retail sector in general over the archaic practice of selling FUR.

Harrods , (according to “wikipedia” is an upmarket department store located on the Brompton Road in Knightsbridge, in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. The Harrods motto is Omnia Omnibus UbiqueAll Things for All People, Everywhere has proven to be a poison pill when faced with the controversy of FUR. 

Harrods is the only department store in Britain that has continued to sell FUR. (That’s DEPARTMENT Store, not, retail chain – retail is rolling out FUR without limitation) Their elitist example of the “acceptability” of fur and the “class tag” of Harrods goods creates an acceptance in high society of the allure to FUR products which is challenged in this protest.

LAST MONTH: MARCH

The protesters were served by Harrods with, under UK Law, an “all guns blazing” updated 16 page restriction order from the Royal Court of Justice (dated 2013) and have been under pressure from the Store security attempting to impose the conditions of the order.  (The order has, by fault of the Harrods Legal team, not been updated for the current campaign and though it falls under the “expectation”  in section 2 against “Persons Unknown” actually omits the word “unknown”  which could be grounds of contention by FBI Animals , in the event of the being applied for arrest or detention against non CAFT members.

Fashion industry  – Hang your heads in Shame:

Newly shamed in the Fashion Elite for selling “FAUXFUR” but proved to be cat / rabbit / racoon / dog: Aquatalia /Belk/Michael Kors/Jacadi, and Nordstrom Rack

Michael Kors spokesman commented that the material falsely identified as “faux” on the store’s website due to “a clerical error,” (NO SHIT Sherlock ! – Source NBC News today show:

http://qz.com/316783/fashion-companies-just-got-caught-labeling-real-fur-faux-again/

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2890312/Your-faux-fur-actually-REAL-stores-like-Nordstrom-Rack-Neiman-Marcus-falsely-labeling-animal-pelt-clothing-fake.html

In the 1980’s  public rejected FUR en mass following a series of campaigns highlighting the techniques used in the processing of Seal Cubs for FUR. It is ironic that this method of processing FUR , so vehemently protested against is more humane than most of the global fur trade farming today. At least the seals were dead ! The Public had an issue with that but don’t have an issue with whats going on today ? it seems unbelievable….

Here are some informative links on the reality of the FUR trade for those of you who like to investigate more:

SELLING DOG AND CAT FUR IS LEGAL IN CANADA WHATS THE ISSUE? http://www.straight.com/news/lesley-fox-selling-cat-and-dog-fur-legal-canada

SKINNED ALIVE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2045016/Raccoon-dogs-skinned-alive-make-cheap-copies-Ugg-boots.html

Back to London for some research: Why is it when you sit on your underground train around London, that so many women are happy to sit in full fur coats made from fox, rabbit, cat, dog imported furs, All evidence clearly shows the animals are treated inhumanly ?……

We took the matter to test, and, over the period of a week FISHINABOX asked 100 women between Highbury Islington and Stratford Station London if they were aware that their Fur coat or trim was real or not and if real, most likely subjected to methods of torture in its production.

Image3

Results: 28 of the women responded aggressively (verbally violent) or passively aggressively (ignored) and declined to answer. Of the remaining 72; 20 responded that they were fully aware;  52 said there trims / coats were most likely fake and were informed about the cases of the Tom Tailor use of cat fur and Canada Goose use of Coyote fur.

When advised that the cost of fake fur (therefore the likelihood that fake fur is actually Cat/Dog Fur) now exceeds the cost of cat/dog FUR, and, that the US FUR market who supplies the globalized west, currently has 60% of all FUR imports coming from China. where the FUR industry is a staple of  Cat/Dog and Rabbit Fur.All women of the remaining 52 questioned were unaware and shocked.

All women were then asked if they owned cats themselves of the 20 Women who were fully aware, 7 owned Cats, of the 52 women questioned 23 owned Cats.

At FISHINABOX we make the sweepingly judgement decision that Women who knowingly and happily wear FUR farmed on an industry of torture are basically just bitches and as a result we reached out to Heidi to support her in her work. As part of this campaign we will be releasing a number of profile Music Anthems targeting issues of Domestic Animal Abuse throughout 2015 with the sole aim of education the Public and reducing the number of people who wear FUR to only leave the Bitches.

So know you have read this article, whilst sitting with Cat on your lap purring and are, from the corner of your eye, looking at the fluffy black “fake fur” coat from Josephs (who market their FUR under the blurb “…has become synonymous with discerning fashion, the finest quality materials and the sleekest designs that fuse minimalist, and understated style with timeless elegance) that you paid £300.00 for and wondering if you want to be seen out in it any more……..”

If you want to check your Trim or jacket to see if its FUR: http://www.treehugger.com/sustainable-fashion/how-to-tell-real-fur-from-faux-fur.html

If you have bought FUR without realizing you should return it to the Shop of purchase and request a refund based on mis-sold goods consumer rights known as – Satisfactory As Described: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/shopping/consumer-rights-refunds-exchange

Do you ever feel like you’ve been cheated ? Feel you want to do something about it ? Attend the DEMO this Saturday outside HARRODS and ensure that the Fashion Industry hangs it’s head in Shame.

月光漫过的肌肤
像大理石一样冰冷坚硬

像竹片一样,我们静静地依偎在一起
你的每一次呼吸都透着寒意

像竹片一样,我们飞快地成长
每一步每一次呼吸每一个吻都让我们更紧密
竹子的根盘结纠缠日益强大
我们对彼此过度依赖
爱情让我们迷失了自己

Like bamboo, Like bamboo, Like bamboo , Like bamboo
Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe, still “lies”),

Like bamboo sticks we lie
Skin cold and hard in the night
I turn, I watch you by night
The flutter of your dreaming eyes (under your eyelids.. under your lies)
Like bamboo sticks we lie, (still lithe),
flawless against the moonlight
Like bamboo sticks we lie
Skin cold and hard in the night

我转身 看着夜色中的你
睡梦中的你眼珠在转动
你的嘴唇在沉沉的呼吸中被湿气氤氲
就像被削断的竹片 你已经变得脆弱而冷漠

你在睡梦中转身 在某个呼吸的瞬间你厌恶地背过身去
我想靠近你 触碰你 但已不再可能
我无法动弹 身体像水泥一样僵硬
所有的星辰已经陨落 你在曙光中慢慢苏醒
但你依然背对着我 像顽固的竹片一样对我视而不见
你忘记了我们的梦想 你起身兀自离开
我们就像竹片一样, 竹片
我们就像竹片一样, 竹片

Home Calling,.
Far Away from home, in a stranger’s land. I open up memories of home and remember:
that sky through the window, that voice behind the door, that scent of bouquet,
that softness of the lawn, the notes in that book, the warmth of that cup of tea,
the longing of the thread, the touch of the needle, the richness of the wine, the memories of my mother’s cooking,The sound of familiar voice,the sight of loving smiles. With both laughter and sorrow, with hearts mingled as one.

Home, where warmth lingers, where safety is found, where burdens are shed, and your true self is bare. There a lamp that will always be lit, to guide your way back home.
Home, where love is freely given, and abundantly received. No matter where we go, or where we are, heart is where our family shall always dwell, where we call home.
Where there is love, there are the traces of home, Thus one makes home, wherever one maybe.
To come home, is to come back to a place where you will be loved, understood, and totally accepted. I am on my way home. Where are you ?
