From Animal Equality (UK):
On Saturday 6th April, we’ll be taking to the streets to demand a ban on foie gras imports!
We’ll be holding a peaceful protest outside a restaurant which serves foie gras in central London, and events will be happening in towns and cities across the country in solidarity.
If you’re interested in joining us, just click the link below and respond to our Facebook event to receive more information in the coming weeks.
Despite foie gras being illegal to produce in the UK due to the cruel force-feeding involved, we still import around 200 tonnes of it every year. Although feedback from the government about the possibility of a ban has been positive, we have yet to receive a firm commitment.
Now is the time to up the pressure and ensure the import of this barbaric product is banned as soon as possible!
Events are taking place in Bath, Cambridge, Cheltenham, Grimsby, Peterborough, Portsmouth and Worthing, as well as the protest in London.
Activists will be gathering petition signatures and encouraging people to send postcards to Michael Gove to show their support for a foie gras-free Great Britain.
If you’d like to organise an event near you, just email us and we’ll provide you with everything you need to make it a success!
Thank you for your support,
Dr Toni Shephard
Executive Director – UK
