The Campaigners

Around Europe and beyond ... anti-fur campaigners drive home the message

Croatia has one of the most prolific animal welfare groups in Eastern Europe, but the country is also the world's largest exporter of Chinchilla fur.

Since being launched "Animal Friends Croatia" (AFC) have achieved positive responses with their aims to ban fur trading and to bring about new animal welfare laws.

Suported by PETA, Goran Višnjic, Croatian actor from the TV series E.R. joined an early AFC anti-fur campaign with his message "If you wouldn't wear your dog - please don't wear any fur!"
Višnjic wanted consumers to know that for each fur coat, collar, or cuff, animals are trapped, drowned, or beaten to death in the wild or gassed, strangled, or electrocuted on fur farms. He was inspired to speak out after seeing a magazine article featuring fur. "[My wife and I] were disgusted," he said. "What's going on? Civilization is advancing, but some people are going backwards. Today we can use many different materials to warm ourselves without killing other beings."
In Zagreb and towns around the country, campaigners dressed up as chinchillas while handing out leaflets to women in fur coats. In the photo left, fire eaters burn fur coats in the main streets of Zagreb.
Singer, Sophie Ellie Bextor has also helped to promote AFC's message, and buses and billboards are regularly covered with campaign posters.
Even the city's fashion college have held impromptu fashion shows at bus stations to help spread the message.
