Schumacher Furs Protest Report (I'd rather go naked than wear fur), February 18

 
While about twenty protesters stood out in the cold holding signs and passing out literature in front of Schumacher Furs last Saturday, another half dozen protesters stripped down to g-strings and shoes, some with strategically placed anti-fur stickers, others with anti-fur slogans written on their bare skin with black ink.

Meanwhile a crowd gathered across the street, fascinated by our protest, and more than usual amounts of educational literature were distributed. Why would people take off their clothes downtown in 37 degree weather? To drive home the point that we'd rather wear nothing than wear the product of intense animal abuse and suffering.
