To get their fur some of these animals are farmed and skinned alive…

Nearly all the retailers has seen sense now and do not sell any. Fashion wise, wearing fur these days is very unpopular. But there are still some shops that want to profit from this cruelty and try to sell it. In Liverpool, Cricket is that shop.

The O’Leary clan have been out there (on Mathew Street) the last few weeks and will be there this coming Saturday and any others that they can spare. If you have some time and want to join them… They’ll be there around 12.30 to 3ish. (There will be a demo outside the shop every Saturday until Cricket see sense and stop selling this stuff. )
