New Turkish anti-fur campaign: Take off your fur, wear your conscience!
AFP PhotoFamous faces from Turkey appear in a new anti-fur campaign film produced by the Take Care of Me (BGKO) animal rights organization and the Production Team of Turkey (PToT).
The film intends to raise awareness of the inhumane methods used in fur production and the torture of animals killed for their fur, and features famous local actors including Alican Yücesoy, Ayça Varlıer, Bennu Yıldırımlar, Kenan Ece, Levent Üzümcü, Mert Fırat, Özge Özder, Özgün Uğurlu, Özgür Çevik, Serkan Altunorak and Şebnem Bozoklu.
The film also warns against cheap clothes, accessories and ornaments sold under the guise of “faux fur” that are actually made from the “real fur” of stray animals abducted from the streets and killed for the products.
The campaign calls on viewers to “take off your fur” and “wear your conscience.”
