No Foie Gras National Day of Action this Sunday!‏

Join us in a national day of action against restaurants that sell foie gras!

Foie gras is the diseased liver of ducks and geese who are kept in confined conditions and force fed with a metal pipe. This force feeding can result in severe injuries to the birds throats, in a matter of weeks their livers swell up to ten times the normal size, and the birds can scarcely stand or walk. After three months of this torture they are killed.

There are events in Wellington that can be viewed here

In Auckland, we are holding a protest outside Sabato at 3pm on Sunday 4th October afternoon.

Meet at 57 Normanby Rd, Mt Eden.

Hope you see you there! Bring noise-makers and placards!

I tried emailing Sabato, and they are the rudest company I have ever dealt with.

What about ethically produced foie gras? What about that which comes from animals not force-fed, but left to gorge of their own accord?
