There were two anti-fur protests on Black Friday, the 23ed of November 2012. One protest by the Anti-Fur Society lined the streets in front of Gartenhaus Furs at 7101 Wisconsin Ave with a solid wall of people with picket signs.
One of the staffers at Gartenhaus reponded with threats to the videotaping of what few customers they got, but was called on her bluffs. When police responded, she surely complained to them but got no results because the videotaping was in and from public space. The only thing police had to say was to stay on public space and not enter the store’s property, that was it.
Meanwhile, those few customers did have to run the gauntlet to get onto that private property. They were offered fliers but refused to take them and then were pursued by protesters calling them out for making the choice to wear coats that cost $5,000 or more and 40 animal lives or more.
Gartenhaus used to have a second store in DC itself, across from Neiman-Marcus aka Neiman-Carcass, bug it went out of business. Protest organizers claimed partial credit for that victory.
A smaller protest of folks from DARTT and the Anarchist Alliance-DC Network went to Millers Furs, opened the doors, and yelled into the building. A pasty-faced manager or owner came out and tried to argue with the protesters to go away, without effect. During Millers Fur protests in the late 1990s, Manny Miller gained a reputation for liking to fight, unknown if this was him.
