Protests have been taking place around the country outside Karen Millen "fashion" shops because of their use of fur. The Liverpool store has removed all fur due to pickets and the pickets of the Manchester shop (King Street, Deansgate) are set to continue. Days of action have been organised for the first week in February and 6th March. Please join in the demos and also write to Karen Millen informing them of your opposition to fur and asking them to never use or sell fur again. The address is: KG Stanford, Managing Director, Unit D11, Maidstone Business Centre, St Peter St, Maidstone, Kent ME16 0ST, or email: KarenMillen@dial.pipex.com. For details on the pickets contact: 0151 726 0339 or pager 01523 478842

Ban Fur Forever

A Private Members' Bill to ban fur farming has been launched by Liverpool Garston MP Maria Eagle. Despite the ban being promised by Labour before the election they have made few moves towards it and MPs have decided to take action themselves. Watch this space for updates on this important move.
