Des manifestants nus contre les toques en fourrure d’ours des Horse Guards

Quelque 70 personnes ont manifesté nues dimanche 21 mai 2006 à Londres contre l’utilisation de fourrure d’ours dans la fabrication des toques portées par les Horse Guards, la garde d’apparat de la reine.
Les défenseurs des animaux, bravant le crachin, se sont couchés empilés pendant 20 minutes sur des marches proches de la cathédrale Saint-Paul.

Selon eux, la fourrure d’un ours noir du Canada ne permet la confection que d’une seule toque.
Un porte-parole du ministère de la Défense a déclaré que les tentatives faites jusqu’à présent de remplacer la fourrure d’ours n’avaient pas été concluantes.
Les matières synthétiques, a-t-il expliqué, perdent leur forme et deviennent trop lourdes quand elles sont mouillées par la pluie.

  1. DOZENS of nude animal rights supporters staged a protest yesterday against the use of bearskin to make hats for the Queen’s palace guards.
    About 70 men and women lay in the rain on steps near St Paul’s Cathedral in London to demonstrate against the killing of black bears in Canada to make the hats.
    The protesters wore only bear masks, chanted slogans and held up banners during the stunt, organised by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta).
    Peta said more than 170 MPs had signed an Early Day Motion calling for the use of fake fur in the hats.
    Campaigners claim it can take the entire hide of one bear to make just one hat.
    Campaign co-ordinator Anita Singh said: « People wanted to show how passionate they are about this cause. Sometimes drastic things call for drastic measures.
    « The British government, which has outlawed fur farming, is perpetrating this. This wouldn’t be allowed in Britain.
    « It is indefensible cruelty and the government is having a lot of explaining to do now in the face of public opposition. »
    A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: « We appreciate how strongly people feel about it and we are, and have been for quite some time, trialling synthetic substitutes for hats. We just haven’t been able to find a suitable

    LONDON — Around 100 animal rights campaigners stripped naked in central London on Sunday to protest the use of traditional bearskin hats worn by British military guards on ceremonial parade.
    Wearing nothing but bear masks and carrying placards saying « Bears Slaughtered for the Queen’s Guards — Indefensible », the group gathered to call on Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and the Ministry of Defence to end use of the foot-high bear pelt hat known as a busby.
    « The Ministry of Defence has blood on its hands while it allows bears to be slaughtered for ceremonial caps when beautiful synthetics are available », says PETA’s Anita Singh.
    A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said they were looking for alternatives to the Canadian bearskin used for the hats but that it was proving very difficult.
    The ministry told the BBC three years ago that skins for the hats are a by-product of bear culls by the Canadian government.
    Soldiers wearing the hats can be seen all year outside the Queen’s official London residence of Buckingham Palace, where the changing of the guard is a popular tourist attraction.
    Wearing bearskins is thought to have been a tradition of some regiments since 1815 when the British monarch granted the right to don the head gear in recognition of the defeat of Napoleon’s bearskin-wearing Imperial Guard at the Battle of Waterloo.

  3. Effectivement cela semble à la mode de se déshabiller pour se faire remarquer. Je trouve cela bien dommage comme ça donne l’impression au ‘textiles’ que les naturistes font cela pour se faire remarquer voir que être nu est qq. chose de remarquable. Bien que c’est simplement … naturelle.
