Organised annual Fur Farm awareness days and protests at Ireland's largest fur farm in Laois
In 2009, for the first time in the history of Irish anti-fur campaigning, we organised a 'Fur Farm Exposé Tour', in which we traveled to every fur-farming county to leaflet the towns and protest outside the actual farms. This was a very effective tool in highlighting the issue, resulting in a lot of newspaper and radio coverage.
Produced a campaign video on the issue, thanks to anonymously received footage exposing Irish fur farms, which can be viewed here: http://www.youtube.com/naracampaigns
Sent out 109 fur farm exposé packs to to various TD's, Ministers, SPCA's, radio stations and newspapers. This resulted in a number of Irish politicians getting onboard with the campaign, and an investigation on the fur farms being launched.
Leafleted and petitioned outside the Dept. of Agriculture every week for 3 years, until a phase-ban on fur farming was confirmed by the Irish government on Sat. 10th October 2009.
In July 2010, a new campaign was started to ban the import and sale of real fur in Ireland. Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council and South Dublin County Council have already adopted the ban. Due to current trading laws, these bans will not affect individual shops - but once we get the majority of Irish councils behind us, we will lobby for a change in legislation. Our goal is to get Ireland completely fur free by 2012, to coincide with the fur farming ban.
