Animals in the wild are caught in leghold traps in which they suffer and die in agony. The biggest number of animals which are killed for their fur are ranch-raised and being killed by millions after they spent their lives in tiny cages.
Promotion, selling and wearing of fur garments should be condemned. Therefore Animal Friends invites all citizens, celebrities and Croatian media to condemn cruelty and the killing of animals for their fur and publicly support this campaign and be as loud as possible in creating a Croatia without fur.
Performance "Creating Eve" as support to the campaign
EkS-scena also supports the "For Croatia without Fur" campaign with a benefit performance called "Creating Eve" by the co-author of the initiative OOUR. The performance will be realized in cooperation with the Student Center's "Kultura promjene," on Monday, February 5, 2007, in the ITD Theatre, Savska cesta 25, at 8 P.M. The gains of the sold tickets will be donated as a support to the "For Croatia without Fur" campaign.
