hired to open Harrods Sale faces protests.
below for contact alert and protest details, and for links to demos from
and TV personality Amanda Holden has been hired to open the Harrods post-Christmas
Sale on Saturday 26th December, Boxing Day. With the world's media also
expected to be present, we will be there as usual with placards, banners
and leaflets, to expose Harrods' leading role in promoting and profiting
from the bloody fur trade. Please join us if you can
or not you can make the protest on the day, please take a minute to contact
Ms Holden and ask her not to promote Harrods while it continues to sell
fur, see below for details.
Meet from 8.45am to 9.45am at Harrods, 87 Brompton Rd, SW1X 7XL (next to
Knightsbridge Tube Station, head for tube exit marked Harrods). The opening
will be at 10am, and will only last a few minutes. Please make an effort
to attend the protest, it lasts less than an hour, but it is the most important
date in Harrods year. (This year the opening will take place by door number
3, not 5, as in previous years, due to pedestrianisation)
This is Harrods'
biggest event of the year, and the sale opening usually attracts worldwide
publicity. So as always it's an excellent chance for us to highlight Harrods'
role as the only department store in the UK which does not have a fur-free
policy. In previous years our sale protests have been publicised around
the world, see below for details.
Please contact Amanda Holden and remind her about the horrors of the fur
trade and Harrods' leading role in promoting fur, that Harrods is the ONLY
UK department store which does not have a fur-free policy, even though it
is illegal to produce fur in the UK. And also as in previous years that
we intend to be there to protest on the day.
A great animal
According to various sources, Ms Holden is a vegetarian and "a great
animal rights activist". Remind her about her about the terrible suffering
of the animals killed in their millions for the fur trade.
Ms Holden, in addition to her role as an actress, is also a judge on the
TV talent show Britain's Got Talent. Ask her to show the same compassion
and moral conscience as another talent show winner turned international
star Leona Lewis, who turned down an offer of £1million to open the
Harrods sale because of its sale of fur.
contact Amanda Holden via her agency and mark all correspondence FAO Amanda
Holden. Please keep all letters polite and informative, and please forward
