Moda, Peta protesta in piazza Duomo: “Smascherata la crudeltà verso i coccodrilli”

Ormai è quasi una tradizione: gli animalisti della Peta, alla vigilia della settimana della moda, mettono in scena la loro protesta contro l’uso di pelli e pellicce. Questa mattina un trio di modelle in mutande e reggiseno, con il volto coperto da maschere di coccodrillo, ha stazionato in piazza Duomo brandendo cartelli con le scritte: “Smascherata la crudeltà verso i coccodrilli” e “Gli animali muoiono per le pelli esotiche”. Da Peta spiegano che, secondo una loro recente denuncia, negli allevamenti di coccodrilli in Vietnam – tra cui due che hanno fornito le pelli a una conceria di proprietà della società madre di Louis Vuitton, Lvmh – gli animali sono confinati in piccole fosse e a volte vengono squartati mentre sono ancora vivi. Ne abbiamo scritto qui su 24zampe, quando l’associazione ha annunciato di aver acquistato un pacchetto di azione del colosso del lusso per tentare di “combatterlo dall’interno”. “Non c’è niente di chic nell’ammassare dei sensibili esseri viventi dentro a pozzi, farli a pezzi e poi lasciarli morire – dice il direttore dei programmi internazionali di Peta Mimi Bekhechi – Peta chiede a tutti di evitare i prodotti realizzati con pelli di animali esotici e scegliere invece la gentilezza dello shopping vegan”.
