NARA (National Animal Rights Association) is a voluntary, vegan, animal rights group based in Dublin, Ireland:
We have many ongoing campaigns, and are constantly out spreading awareness through our protests, demonstrations and information tables. Whether it’s a fur shop, a circus or a pharmaceutical company that funds vivisection – anywhere we find to be violating the rights of animals – we will be there.
NARA recently release the fantastic documentary, ‘Ireland’s Fur Trade’, for free on YouTube:
This is a documentary exploring the fur industry and trade in Ireland. Currently, there are three fur farms in the Republic housing roughly between 100,000-150,000 mink and there are at least dozens of shops selling real fur across the country. In 2010, the Irish gov’t pledged to ban fur farming but after the collapse of a Fianna Fáil-led coalition in 2011, Fine Gael scrapped the proposal and it’s back to square one. However, active efforts demanding both a ban on fur farming and to convince shops to remove the sale of fur continue.
