I usually avoid stores like the plague on Black Friday because of the massive amounts of people and the rampant consumerism, which is just something I can’t get down with. However, it is the busiest shopping day of the year, which makes it a perfect opportunity to get the word out about the cruelty of the fur trade.
If you’ve been wanting to get active, here’s your chance. You can chant, carry signs, hand out leaflets or simply lend support by marching along with dozens of other local activists this Friday, November 27th. The march will begin at Daley Plaza (Washington & Dearborn) at 12 pm and continue through Chicago’s main shopping district, the Loop and Michigan Ave. , stopping at fur stores along the way. The event is sponsored by the Animal Defense League. For more information contact adlchicago[at]riseup.net.
