Intermix in Georgetown gets fur protest

Intermix, an upscale clothing shop in Georgetown, has stated that they have not received “enough public pressure” to consider removing fur products from their shelves. From 7:30 PM until closing on Dec 17, animal activists showed up outside to correct this.

The 17th of December may have been the first time animal activsts showed up at Intermix, but it surely won’t be the last unless they do the right thing and stop selling fur.

One of the protest signs displayed a raccoon dog, a small dog native to Russia, with his/her skin removed for the fur trade-and STILL ALIVE. This kind of brutality for fashion will never stop inspiring people to target any business selling the products of the fur industry.

Intermix will not only have to answer to protesters, but to all their neighbors in tony Georgetown who many not appreciate having a neighbor that attracts animnal rights protesters and possibly militant anti-capitalists as well. Surely Intermix’s neighobrs and their landlord remember the October Rebellion in 2007, when upscale chain stores boarded up at 500 IMF protesters marched on Georgetown!
