Coronation Street Cast Speak Up for Bears

Sally Webster

Coronation Street favourites Cilla, Fiz, Hayley, Kelly, Kirk, Liam, Maria, Molly, Sally, Kevin, John and Sean recently took leave of their love triangles, scandals and dramas to show their support for PETA's campaign to end the use of real fur for The Queen's Guards' ceremonial caps. Wearing fake-bearskin caps with PETA's "No Fur" logo and holding signs reading, "Save the Bears", these big-hearted stars from Britain's much-loved soap also signed a petition to the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

Why are these Street stars striking out at the MoD? Like the majority of the British public, they are appalled that in the 21st century, animals are still being hunted and slaughtered for nothing more than ornamental headpieces. Despite this opposition, the MoD has spent £321,000 of taxpayers' money fuelling an industry that is so cruel that it has been banned in Britain. Please take a moment to contact Prime Minister Gordon Brown today. Tell your friends and family, and urge them to do the same for the sake of the bears!

What You Can Do

You don't have to live in Weatherfield to make a difference! Join your friends from Coronation Street in their fight to save the bears by signing PETA's petition urging The Queen and the MoD to switch to humane, faux-fur caps for the palace guards. Please also take a moment to contact Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
