Episode Description

Kangaroos Are NOT Shoes: That’s the message hundreds of activists sent to Adidas, in a global day of action at the height of the holiday shopping season. Marching into Adidas stores, across the United States, Canada, Europe & Australia, animal activists demanded Adidas stop its involvement in the largest mass slaughter of terrestrial wildlife in the world. Led by Australia’s Animal Justice Party,Their Turn, the Center for a Humane Economy & supported by dozens of other organizations, including UnchainedTV, the message is clear: Kangaroos are not shoes. Adidas has, so far, refused to join Puma, Nike, Diadora and other brands that have kicked kangaroo leather to the curb. Now, Australian Member of Parliament Emma Hurst, Center for Humane Economy’s Jennifer Skiff, Animal Justice Party’s Louise Ward & TheirTurn.Net's Donny Moss reveal their strategy for ending kangaroo slaughter to UnchainedTV’s Jane Velez-Mitchell! Adidas is invited on any time to respond.
