Laura Broxson, founder of the National Animal Rights Association (NARA) in Ireland, joins Animal Voices to speak about campaigning against fur.
Last year, Ireland came within a hair’s breadth of banning fur farms, only to see the national government suddenly replaced by one friendly to fur farming. Undeterred, NARA is preparing for a busy year ahead. Building on impressive successes in Dublin — convincing stores to stop selling fur and convincing the city council to ban fur sales at its own fairs and markets — NARA will be taking the fight to the countryside: protesting and lobbying in the counties where mink farms exist, and pressuring the farms’ suppliers to quit dealings with them.
Broxson will also tell us about NARA’s work on circuses and vivisection, and share her best tips for staying safe while doing activist work.
