  • [01] Animal rights groups protest outside Fur Show

    Members of animal rights groups and independent organisations staged a protest demonstration on Saturday outside the venue where the 1st International Fur Show is being held in Athens.

    Minor tension erupted when demonstrators blocked participants from entering the trade fair's venue, the Expo Athens building, but quickly died down.

    "The organisation of such a fair in the midst of an economic crisis is an unprecedented and provocative action," Rita Anestopoulou, a member of the nationwide coordinating committee of animal rights groups, told ANA-MPA.

    According to rights groups representatives, an estimated 50 million animals are killed annually throughout the world for the fur trade.
