Nottingham Animal Rights works to co-ordinate the activities of many of the groups and individuals campaigning for animal rights and welfare in Nottingham.
At each fortnightly meeting a number of events are planned, including...
Nottm Fur Protests - Sunday 12th February
Fur trade protest at 1pm at Flannels, 34-36 Bridlesmith Gate, Nottingham NG1 2GQ
Followed at 2pm at Paul Smith, 20 Low Pavement Nottingham NG1 7DG
Despite assertions that they will stop selling fur in 2012, Paul Smith still features fur in their collections, so protests continue.
These times will be repeated on Sunday 19th Feb
