ANIMAL liberation groups are urging people to boycott the Beijing Olympics because of the treatment of animals in China's fur industry.
A small but vocal group from the Anti-Fur Coalition gathered in a peaceful demonstration outside the Chinese Consulate in Melbourne's inner east this morning. It was one of 30 protests staged worldwide today as part of an International Day of Protest Against Chinese Fur.
Danielle Archer, a spokeswoman for the group, said the purpose of the gathering was to encourage people to boycott the Beijing Olympics because of the "horrific abuse'' of animals in China.

Finally, I wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your compassion towards fur bearing animals which would be in a far worse situation without your love and support.
