The Norwegian Labour Party votes to end fur farming
The Norwegian Labour Party resolved to put an end to fur farming at their 2011 Party Congress.
This resolution is a clear sign that the Norwegian Labour Party takes voters, employment and intelligent tax policy seriously.
- 6 out of 10 Labour Party-voters are against fur farming
- The fur trade only provides few and unstable part-time job opportunities
- The fur industry still receives 45 million Norwegian kroner of taxpayers’ money each year
Could be the end of fur farming in Norway
The Norwegian Labour Party voting against the fur industry, could spell the end of fur farming in Norway. The majority of the Government now supports an abolishment of fur farming. This is important when the subject will be re-evaluated in 2013.
Your involvement matters!
The Norwegian Animal Protection Alliance has been campaigning for years to end fur farming in Norway. Prior to the Party Congress, we have worked night and day to increase the political support of the Labour Party for a ban on fur farming. We owe this success to our members, and to those who have contributed by sending emails or in other ways showed the Labour Party that there are many of us supporting the animals.
We are now working together for a final ban on fur farming in 2013.
