PETA recently protested against the cruel leather industry at the International Leather Goods Fair (ILGF) in Kolkata. Dressed as a Grim Reaper, a member of PETA "skinned" a live "cow" underneath placards that read, "Leather Is Evil" and "Leather Is Murder". Bags, belts and shoes made of dead skin should be shunned, not celebrated and promoted at a fair. Since wearing skins supports unimaginable cruelty to animals, we ask everyone to think before they buy, and leave leather out of their wardrobe. All you animal lovers, keep in mind “Animal skin is not in!”. Check out http://www.petadishoom.com/yourlife/past_fashion_tips.asp to learn more about alternatives to leather.
SIES College, Mumbai, organized a rally in association with petaDishoom as part of their annual college festival ELOQUENCE 2008. 200 enthusiastic people led by a volunteer dressed in a cow costume and holding PETA banners marched from Sion West to Matunga to show support to PETA by chanting slogans against animal abuse, urging people to go vegetarian, and to stop using leather. 300 students of SIES College also signed the a petition regarding the banning of elephants in urban areas and keeping them free and in the wild where they belong.
