Two important demonstrations

Monday 27th of February 2012, 12pm, Carrigaline: ARAN Demonstration against fur farming in Ireland.

***URGENT DEMONSTRATION NOTICE***: A decision on the future of Irish fur farms will be made very soon. ARAN has requested a meeting with the Agriculture Minister, Simon Coveney, at his Cork constituency office but this was declined. As all our supporters know, we’re running a smashing campaign to shut down Irish fur farms and we need to ensure we work up until the final hour when the decision is a…ctually made. TAKE ACTION: Don’t miss ARAN’s peaceful demonstration outside the Cork constituency office of, Minister Simon Coveney, on Monday, February 27, 2012 at 12noon sharp until 2.30pm. At this stage we’ve done our best, but we’re not giving up, we need you to be there, not for us, but for the many tens of thousands of lives caged on cruel fur farms waiting to be gassed, painfully skinned and electrocuted. If possible, please share this event notice and encourage family and friends to attend too, we’re going to ensure his office hears the animals’ plight loud and clear. Please be sure to RSVP at or PM via Facebook. Thank you for all that you’re doing to help animals, ARAN.
