Last Sunday I was invited by a group of animal loving people to watch the documentary The Witness ~ one man’s emotional journey to becoming an animal activist, particularly around the despicable fur industry. It was comforting to view this moving documentary with others who cared – the circulating tissues were indeed reassuring. 

Before presenting the background to The Witness, I would like to share some thoughts that were raised on Sunday.

One task of an activist is to make others conscious about the ethics of an issue. Surely, though, being aware is not enough? It is one’s conscience that ultimately drives us to try and change an injustice.

  1. I will never forget the scandal that came out a couple of years ago that exposed the “fake fur” industry, which was actually using the fur of raccoon dogs. There was a documentary that showed how they are clubbed unconscious and skinned alive. Evil. Thank you for your site because only through awareness can we hope to stop these criminal acts.
