"MALMÖ, SWEDEN, 29th of December.

This seems to be a pretty bad year for the fur dealers, at least in Malmö. We once again hit the two of them which has the worse economy.

Nordiska Päls had all their sunscreens (the kind which sits above the windows) slashed with a knife, and Pälskonfektion had a bike locked to their gates, and slogans painted all over the walls.

We intend to close down all of the furshops, and we will. 2004 will be even worse, so close down while you still can...
