Fur farms have little public support and a big potential to cause an outcry. Yet only a few countries have actually banned them. As a result, tens of millions of minks, foxes and other animals still suffer and die for needless fashion accessories.

In this talk, I will argue that campaigning for a fur farm ban deserves more focus in the international movement than it currently has, and we should be more self-confident in pushing it through. I will describe common mistakes that cause anti-fur campaigns to fail. Consequently, I will identify key principles of a successful fur campaign and demonstrate it on our own campaign that led to a fur farm ban in the Czech Republic.
