Campaigners yesterday returned to Van Zellers restaurant in Harrogate to protest their use of foie gras in their dishes.
Dressed smart, two activists were led to their reserved table by staff and left ready to wine and dine. After a short while, they begun an in-house demonstration of the production methods used in the rearing of ducks and geese for this dish. A staged ‘force feeding’ was conducted, much to the horror of clients.
As expected, they were forcibly evicted by the waiters as a noisy demonstration begun outside. Van Zeller clearly showed dismay at the shame brought to the business as he stood outside yelling down the phone to the police.
With dozens of businesses nationwide ditching this vile dish in recent weeks, there is no doubt that pressure is mounting on those who continue to support the cruelty of foie gras. According to the police present there have been numerous false bookings of tables at the restaurant.
More protests are planned for the coming weeks and local newspapers have printed articles about the campaign.
For a foie gras-free Britain!
