Ask Nordstroms to stop carrying fur

Believe it or not, Nordstrom’s carries fur.  The Nordstrom’s family claims to support animals and that they only carry fur due to customer demand.  Let them know how you feel about Nordstrom’s purchasing the skins of animals that were killed by such methods as drowning, poisoning, strangulation, genital electrocution, and being trapped or beaten to death. Send them an email, or call them and let them know you will not shop at Nordstrom’s until they pledge to stop carrying fur.

Ask the West Seattle Junction Merchants to stop mule rides
West Seattle is having a family holiday festival with many lovely activities, but on December 2nd and 16th they are hosting mule carriage rides. Please take a minute to email and ask them to leave the mule carriage rides out this year. They are cruel and inhumane.


Tell L.L. Bean to Go Fur-Free
L.L. Bean still sells fur-lined hats and gloves. A company that has been around for 100 years should know better than to support the incredibly cruel fur industry. Refuse to shop at L.L. Bean until they make the compassionate decision to go fur-free.

Stop South Korea from killing whales before it’s too late
On December 3, the South Korean government will consider a proposal to establish its own ‘scientific’ whaling program. The first harpoons could be fired in less than six months. It’s up to us to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Backed by what remains of its old whaling industry and countries like Japan, South Korea’s fisheries ministry is pushing hard to resume whaling. But this is the Prime Minister’s decision and government sources have indicated that “other issues” will be considered. That means political pressure.
Last summer, when South Korea announced to the International Whaling Commission (IWC) that it would begin ‘scientific’ whaling, there was an uproar around the world with governments voicing concern and thousands of articles appearing in the press. This is because ‘scientific’ whaling, which never produces data needed for management of whales, is widely seen as a fraud and an excuse to prolong the dying industry of commercial whaling.
Tell the Prime Minister of South Korea that there is no place for the needless slaughter of whales in the 21st century and to block his country’s plans to establish a ‘scientific’ whaling program.

About rachel

Hi, I'm Rachel and I've been active with NARN as long as I've been vegan 13 years! I made the choice to be vegan after learning about what happens to egg laying chickens and dairy cows. I had previously been vegetarian for 7 years because I finally made the connection that beef came from cows and pork came from pigs (duh, I know). I didn't want my food choices to cause the death of an animal. It just seems like common sense to not eat animals if you care at all about animals, the earth or your fellow human beings. I became active with NARN because after I found out about the atrocities happening to animals, I felt that I had to do what I could to help stop these injustices. NARN is local, puts the animals first, and networks with other groups. We aren't worried about getting credit - just helping the animals. One of my favorite quotes is: "I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all." ~ Leo Rosten and "Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they know to be right cannot be done." --Russell W. Davenport
