Animal Rights Activists Campaign Against Foie Gras
05/18/2004
Duck killed by foie gras production The Campaign for A Foie Gras-Free Pittsburgh has been going strong lately, with two successes under their belt. The campaign, which is motivated by the recognition that foie gras (a spread made from inflamed goose and duck liver) is produced under conditions that all would abhor as inhumane has already gotten two restaurants to remove it from their menus. As Baum Vivant in Oakland and the Carlton downtown have both pledged to stop selling foie gras, activists are turning their attention towards Lucca, a prominent Italian restaurant in Oakland.

The protesters have been leafleting and holding signs at least twice weekly, and are encouraging concerned individuals to contact Lucca and other restaurants to express their displeasure with foie gras.
