Rochester Activists for Animal Rights Invite You to Protest Against Cruelty!
03 May 2011 06:14 GMT
The cruelty that occurs on fur farms is beyond comprehension. Every year 30 million animals are raised in captivity only to be killed for their fur. These animals are literally being skinned alive, if not electrocuted, drowned, or beaten to death. Thousands of other animals are captured in the wild using “leg crushing traps”. The animal is literally left there to suffer in pain for days before the hunter comes back to beat the animal to death.
Rochester Activists for Animal Rights (RAAR) seeks to change the prevailing attitudes about animals, and to cultivate compassion for all living beings regardless of species. RAAR strives to raise awareness of and reduce animal exploitation through public education, direct action, and collaboration with other social justice organizations in our community.
RAAR hosts a monthly demonstration against fur seller Held Projansky Furs at 2240 Monroe Ave. on the first Saturday of the month from 1:00PM to 2:30PM. The group meets on the first and third Tuesday of the month, 5:30PM-7PM, at the Flying Squirrel Community Space, located at 285 Clarissa St.
