Call for Foie Gras Ban Continues in Cambridge

Animal Rights Cambridge have been lobbying Cambridge City Council to get them to ban Foie-Gras on council premises and land. We met with the councillors to deliver our petition and one of our members addressed the council’s Strategy and Scrutiny Committee about the cruelty involved in Foie-Gras production.

The local paper, the Cambridge Evening News, published an article about our campaign and ran a poll asking the question ‘Should foie gras be banned?’ with 51.3% of respondents agreeing that it should!

We still have a way to go in getting this through the council processes but we hope to see this motion past and for Cambridge to join the ranks of councils like York that say no to foie-gras.
