You can bring food and signs and we can all protest this awful establishment that promotes murder. So once again:

When: Wednesday, March 29th at 12:00

Where: Schumachers (10th and Morrison)

Why: Because fur sucks!

I hope to see you out there!

Check out a recent post over on BlueOregon here:  link to www.blueoregon.com
regarding the Schumacher's protest. See how Oregon's "blue community" views rights to protest and free speech. I urge you to add your comments there.

When a bunch of whiny liberals in progressive's clothing start carrying on about "are those darned animal rights protesters hurting our image" and so forth, you know that you are DOING SOMETHING RIGHT!!!!!! The weekly protests are obviously very, very, very effective. Instead of pissing and moaning, maybe the good folks at BlueOregon should think about how they could adapt those successful tactics to the issues they claim to care about. Assholes.

Yes, bring signs 28.Mar.2006 22:32

Love and liberation...

If anyone can bring some signs we have at the saturday protests, that'd be great, but otherwise we can make our own. Bring yourself! that's what's most important!

remember: 29.Mar.2006 11:31

protesters should bring video equipment, if we have it. You never know what Schumacher will pull next.

Oh, shoot! I'm sorry I didn't know about this picnic; I wd have cancelled my senior exercise class. Thanks for picturing one of my drawings -- I will memorialize our dear beautiful animal friends through drawings and videos and any peaceful/powerful way I can, forever. Love to you all, VS

Looked like the news was there... 29.Mar.2006 19:37

Sorry I couldn't make it... I did catch on the 5PM news on Channel 8. It looks like the fur is starting to hit the fan.

Then a double-whammy with Portland Tribune and The Oregonian
Now KGW. (Can't find anything on their web-site however. :(

Not to mention it being discussed on the Lars Larson show. (Yes, he is in favor of the Schumacher's. HOWEVER, not everyone who listens to his raving rants is on his side... I know some who listen to call in and confront him, get a kick out of the stupidity that people like him exist, etc.)

Yes, things are starting to finally happen. A very positive sign that we are having an impact on the fur industry!

Schumacher may lose lease 31.Mar.2006 13:16

Greg Schumacher called into the Lars Larson show today and said he received a letter from the building owners that threatened to cancel their lease if all offensive signs were not immediately removed from their store windows. Apparently they don't want more vandalism to occur.
