We’re throwing a holiday themed protest at Kitson on December 22nd! Faux ho ho ho! Come! It’ll be fun! We’re bringing soy nog and fauxlicious santa hats!
RSVP HERE: KITSON Fur Protest - Holiday Edition http://on.fb.me/Sov9ZG
Hot damn! We’re going to have to hire @veganvagabond as a male model for the new line of Fur Free LA t-shirts.
He’s wearing the “Get The FOX Outta Here” unisex tank top in blue. We’re adding more men’s styles soon, and all of our tees and tanks will be available on furfreela.com/shop very soon!
However, if you attend any of our upcoming protests, you can get them at 50%. (If there’s a style/size you like, let us know in advance so we can make sure we have it with us.
We target individual stores for the most impact. Without that kind of specificity, we wouldn’t have gotten Planet Blue, Urban Outfitters, LF Stores, True Religion, Dolls Kill, and Brandy Melville to all go fur free!
We are pro faux. Both Planet Blue and Dolls Kill came out with a line of their own faux fur after going fur free. If there’s a market for leather and fur, let’s make it fake.
We don’t want these stores to go out of business, we want them to be in the business of compassionate fashion.
We’re a small team, but our victories would not have been possible without your help. If you’re in the LA area, join us next Saturday December 1st from 1-4pm protesting Kitson on Robertson Blvd.
Hope to see you there!
This bunny is as mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore!
INTERMIX’s merchandise has been overtaken with rabbit fur. They’re selling rabbit fur coats, vests, scarves, blazers, mittens, hats, and ponchos.
It takes 40 rabbits for ONE fur coat.
Please sign and share our INTERMIX petition: www.change.org/intermix
Reach out to Intermix. Let them know they lost your business for selling real fur.

Holy Shiitake Mushrooms! Fur Free Friday had an amazing turnout in Beverly Hills.
P.S. We have two upcoming protests starting next week:
Most of KITSON’s fur is from a brand called “Dolce Cabo.” These coats and vests are labeled as “Rabbit / Raccoon Fur” and they’re all Made In China.
Now I’d like to point out that raccoons themselves are not native to Asian countries, however raccoon dogs are. Any “raccoon fur” that’s made in China, is actually Raccoon Dog (also known as Tanuki.) They are a part of the canine family.
Regardless of what species, animals raised and slaughtered on Chinese fur farms suffer tremendously. Their entire lives are spent behind the bars of their tiny cages, only to be taken out to be beaten and killed.
China has virtually no animal protection laws, so our best way to fight this barbaric industry is with our dollars. Without demand, there will be no supply of animal abuse.
I urge you NOT to shop at stores like KITSON and INTERMIX as long as they sell real fur. They keep the fur trade, one of the most vapid and cruel industries, alive and kicking. Shop with compassion. Shop fur free!

We had some bad luck with the weather at our inaugural Kitson: Please Stop Selling Fur demo, but we won’t let a little rain prevent us from being a voice for the voiceless.
To those of you that came out yesterday and braved the rain, I cannot thank you enough. So let’s try this again, shall we?

These picture do not do any justice to just how hard it rained today. ☔ It was pretty miserable outside, but that didn’t stop these amazing activists from showing up to today’s #furfree protest outside Kitson.
It was so rainy I was worried no one would show up, but @hrossetti16 @buff_doods @creestaaal and @xtagorix did and I couldn’t have done it without them.
