Dear minister Weyts,
I am delighted to hear from my friends at PETA and GAIA that the flemish government has decided to ban fur farming as well as the cruel practice of force feeding for the production of foie gras. This is really excellent news for hundreds of thousands of defenseless animals that have been the victims of a ruthless industry for such a long time.
I salute your lasting efforts as well as the ethical considerations of the Flemish government.
In doing so Belgium will become a fur farming free country, an example for governments and a source of inspiration for countless animal rights advocates around the world dedicated to a cruelty free society.
On behalf of the animals, thank you Flanders, thank you Belgium.
Very best wishes,
