Activists in central Barcelona protest against the fur industry

Demonstration organizer Cristina Ibanez said: & # 39; Our country [Spain] avoids discussing the issue and it's time to bring Spanish legislation into line with the rest of Europe & # 39;

In December 2012, the Netherlands, the second largest mink producer in the EU, adopted a ban on fur farming and mink production will be completely phased out by 2024.

Other countries that have introduced laws prohibiting or gradually abolishing fur farming are Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, Greece, Sweden and Germany.
