Humans are the only animals that knowingly inflict unimaginable suffering on fellow living, feeling beings, needlessly. Those that profit from the cruelties do their best to keep us from seeing the realities of our choices, so that we can continue to financially support the heinous ways by continuing to buy items made from the body parts of a once living being that did not want to die, and died a terribly painful and agonizing death… all for nothing.
Members of AnimaNaturalis, a non-profit group advocating for animal rights, have gone to considerable lengths to voice their dissent against the fur and leather industry.
A couple dozen demonstrators covered in a blood-like substance stripped naked and laid on the ground in Plaza de Catalunya (Catalonia Square) at the heart of Barcelona on Sunday to protest against the killing of animals for clothing.
AnimaNaturalis, a wildlife protection group which staged the protest, shared photos of the flashmob on its social media accounts. One of the activists was photographed holding a banner, reading: “How many lives just for a coat?”, with the pile of naked bodies being surrounded by amazed onlookers.
The organisation said it hopes the demonstration “will have an impact on a society that needs to know about the cruelty that the fur industry is hiding”.
