Lend Your Voice to Ireland’s Activists

The picturesque village (pop. 1600) of Stradbally in SE Ireland is known for an annual arts and music festival called the Electric Picnic.  It is NOT known for the largest fur farm in the country,  just 13 minutes away.  There, thousands of mink are kept in horrendous conditions and gassed to death when just six months old.

Email Minister of Agriculture Simon Coveney.  No one wants their country to have e negative image in other parts of the world. Tell him Ireland should be known for other things instead of concentration camps for fur-bearing animals. Tell him you support a total ban on fur farming and an immediate closure of Ireland’s fur farms.
