TO KILL ANIMALS HAS COME BACK INTO FASHION FOR ESCADA
Following international protests that began in 2007, Escada, a German fashion company under the Procter&Gamble group, had finally decided to stop the sale of fur and fur clothing ‘indefinitely’.
But in 2017 the company resumed the sale of fur in its stores, mainly lambs considered ‘sub-products of the meat industry’, and panelled items of clothing with fur camouflaged and hidden by dyeing and cropping (racoons, chinchillas, minks, rabbits, karakuls).
The group’s executive board refuse to explain their resuming sale of fashion items based on the killing of animals.
Animals considered suitable ‘for fur production’ are bred with the sole purpose of killing them.
They are born and live as prisoners in narrow cages and then they are killed in cruel ways, which however safeguard their precious fur: gas chambers, breaking of cervical bones, fatal blows to muzzle and nape, electricity, electrocution.
Violent acts after violent acts perpetrated by the fur industry with its score of human hangmen who justify the massacre in the name of the economy that gets the world going… according to their vision.
The exploitation of animals and the control on their bodies are the products of the culture we live.
The fur industry proposes and re-proposes a fashion based on the suffering and killing of millions of animals and imposes violent practices concealed behind socially acknowledge elegance.
For this reason we are joining the international campaign against Escada, to protest against this murderous industry.
Against animal exploitation, for animal liberation, for total liberation!
