  • When we saw Miss Connie singer of Sneaky Sound System at the 2007 Arias wearing a fur vest we contacted her manager explaining how animals are killed for their fur and suggesting she watch videos we had included. After speaking to Connie regarding our letter we received a reply. Here is an extract: "after much soul searching we have now come to the decision that she will not even wear fake fur in the future. The last thing we want is for people to be under the assumption that she would even consider to wear real fur. Connie does not want to be seen to be supporting this industry and it goes against her beliefs" A great victory for animals and Ataac and shows that our voice CAN be heard!
