    Cavalli Controversy Continues...

     
    Saturday 7th June Sufi students held demonstrations in Dusseldorf and Washington D.C. outside Roberto Cavalli stores. The students were campaigning against the misuse of their sacred Sufi emblem. They are outraged by Cavalli's use of their sacred logo on his Just Cavalli line. They were protesting for the removal all of his merchandise which have their logo on it.

    Chants of: "What do we want? Our Logo! When do we want it? Now!" and "We want justice Sufi Rights!' were heard by all passerbys.

    Other successful demonstrations have also been held in London, NY, LA and Dallas.

    The London demonstrations held outside Victoria and Albert Museum were Cavalli was due to give a talk was cancelled at the very last moment with rather ambigious explanations. The story was covered by Times and Guardian.

    The campaign continues by the Sufi students on social media using the hashtag #TakeOffJustLogo and #SufiRights

    Many of the demonstrators felt the sole way to stop this form of corporate bullying would be through protesting and boycotting all Cavalli products.

    Attack on minority faith groups must stop - hopefully this campaign will be the start of something!
