UK: Half-naked models protest against fur clothing at London Fashion Week

Half-naked activists of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal organisation (PETA) caused a stir at London Fashion Show when they staged a protest in front of one of the venues on Brewer Street, Friday.
Three models wearing just underwear and gas masks, and with tape covering their nipples, stood with signs reading "fur is toxic" and depicting a skull with crossed bones. Security guards from the venue attempted to end the protest but without success.
According to the organisation, the gas masks symbolise the toxic chemicals used in the production of fur clothing. Animal rights campaigners want fur to be completely banned from the textile industry.
PETA is a non-profit corporation, which is one of the largest animal rights group in the world. Its slogan is "animals are not ours to eat, wear, experiment on, use for entertainment, or abuse in any other way." Founded in March 1980, today it focuses on four core issues—opposition to factory farming, fur farming, animal testing, and animals in entertainment.
