Protestors Gather for Fur Free Friday

Approximately 30 protesters gathered along Cedar Road near Beachwood Place Mall to protest the sale of animal furs

Some 30 protesters led a Fur Free Friday protest at Beachwood Place Mall along Cedar Road just outside the mall's property.

Leigh Davis of Cleveland Animal Rights Alliance said that forty-five million animals are killed a year at fur farms for their fur. The alliance has been in existence for 19 years. Davis urged shoppers to buy cruelty free products.

Well said Gia! I wish I could have gone, maybe we should get the protest back up and running at Summit Mall?

Thanks for the support

I am a former vegetarian who wears fur and supports these people entirely. What I am a little befuttled by, is the venomous, evil, hate that is personal in nature towards the protesters. Everyone has a right to free speech, but some of the comments are not free speech. They are slanderous hate filled tirades. FYI everyone better leave Thunder out of it.

Then why do you publish profanity and aliases?

Gia, I commend all of you that were there! I wish I could have participated:) From what I have seen of the amazing individuals involved in animal rights and activism in the area is that they act with integrity and respect. It is unfortunate that the shoppers could not reciprocate with common courtesy. With that being said I know that we will not let the voice of the innocent and helpless be lost and will persevere!!! I look forward to helping out in the future! Proud to be Vegan! Rebecca Moraco
