Campaign Against Foie Gras
4 evenings of demos from Wed - Saturday from 7pm - 9pm outside Minibar in Bath, which continues to sell Foie Gras.
Every year in France, 30 million ducks are forced into cages so small they canít even stretch their wings. Trapped and helpless, a metal tube is thrust down their throats and vast quantities of food are forcibly pumped into their stomachs so that their livers swell painfully to up to 10 times their natural size. There is no escape and no respite.
The suffering of these birds is so extreme it would be illegal in this country. However, free trade laws mean that every year we import tonnes of these diseased livers, marketed as an expensive delicacy. Britain is a driving force behind this cruel industry.
Forced to ingest so much food that their livers swell up to 10 times their natural size.
For the millions of little female ducklings born in France another horror awaits. They are tossed alive into electric mincers at just a few days old to suffer a violent and horrific death Ė their only crime is they donít put on weight as quickly as their brothers.
