MORRISSEY CALLS FOR END TO IRELAND’S ‘STALE’ FUR INDUSTRY

Ahead of Dublin Concert, Music Icon Asks Michael Creed to Ban Farms Where Minks Are Driven Insane Inside Tiny Cages

Dublin – Ahead of his concert on Tuesday at Dublin’s 3Arena, Morrissey has fired off a letter on behalf of PETA thanking Michael Creed, Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, for banning wild-animal circuses – and urging him to “continue on this progressive path by also outlawing fur farming”.

“Ireland has three fur farms, on which 200,000 minks are jammed into squalid cages and denied the opportunity to roam, swim, or care for their young,” writes Morrissey. “This confinement causes them such psychological distress that many go insane and mutilate themselves. They’re killed when they’re only about 6 months old – crammed by the dozens into a box and gassed to death. And for what? A stale ‘status symbol’ that nobody wants to wear any more.”

PETA – whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear” – notes that the UK, Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and the Netherlands have all banned fur farming and that Norway announced its own ban just last month.

Morrissey’s full letter to Mr Creed is available here. For more information, please visit PETA.org.uk.

thanks to morrissey for speaking up for those innocent ones, forlorn and forsaken, who suffer endless pain and are kept away from the public eye to live in the most despicable and unendurable, man-made conditions and then, finally, die a brutal death

Yeah and while they're at it they could bring back residential schools. Forced integration has always worked well with canadas indigenous people:rolleyes:

They think that they are going somewhere but they go in a circle and end up in the same spot again.

There is a difference between the mink farms and the beef industry though. If you want to change the public view and have action taken it's a lot easier to inspire a negative view against the fur industry. Part of it is because people can be "against" fur without making any changes to their lifestyle. A mink coat is not in my budget. He does go on about beef pretty regularly, and he's not boycotting Ireland either way so in this case I think it's practical to focus on one issue.
"Plastic is dead" is an interesting campaign. Why does he insist on releasing physical products when most of it is consumed digitally anyway? Now if we can just get those solar powered mp3 players made out of recycled plastic collected from the ocean.

With all the amazing fabrics they got now-a-days, the best idea you can come up with is to murder Minks for their fur?
Is that really the best kind of thinking you can get done?
What ya need to do is let that Love seed inside ya self blossom and bloom, instead of wither away.

Woe is ye filthy Mink conditioning Ireland!
Ye have robbed these Minks of their nature!
Unable to survive in their natural surroundings!
Replacing a life with stress and death!
