From the NARN* newsletter:

Convergence at the Seattle Fur Exchange
When: Monday, March 14th - Wednesday, March 16th
Where: American Legend Corporation (200 SW 34th Street, Renton, WA) (map)

The Seattle and Portland Animal Defense Leagues are combining efforts to organize a convergence at the Seattle Fur Exchange. The events will last over March 14-16 and more details will be announced as those dates approach. Please join us!

The Seattle Fur Exchange (now American Legend Auction) is the largest trading auction of animal pelts in North America. It is the longest running auction in the world, held at the Renton, WA warehouse of the American Legend Cooperative, the largest farmer-owned cooperative involved in the marketing and sales of mink furs. The Exchange occurs twice a year (March and May). It involves the trading of millions of animals' pelts between over 20 countries. It is here that the industry coordinates between farmers, designers, and retail. It is a crucial nexus in the international fur trade. To disrupt the ongoing trading could create a cascading effect felt throughout the entire industry. As an industry built upon the brutal exploitation and domestication of wildlife, disruption and abolition are exactly what it deserves.
