Naked protesters say “Have a heart, don’t buy fur!”
Category : Uncategorized
As part of National Anti-Fur Day, we staged a protest downtown at the Bay here in Vancouver. There are protests happening in 17 22 cities across Canada (most on the 14th – the actual anti-fur day).
6 nude activists wearing big paper hearts were the centerpiece of the protest, with other activists holding signs or distributing leaflets.
Of course, this meant that I had to strip down to my underwear and stand out in the 4 degree weather. At least it was sunny. But it was still freezing!
Here are some photos from the event. (I’m the goofy guy on the end of the nudies.)
People walking by were very supportive of the cause, and we only had a few negative comments. We had a great media turnout so we will hopefully see some coverage in the news. 24 Hours already has a story up online:
