Pamela Anderson meets french parliament to ban force-feeding for foie gras



The actress met the French Parliament a week ago. She supports a newly proposed law that prohibits force-feeding of ducks and geese for foie gras. She asks the parliament to support this new law proposal and the french people to stop eating foie gras. As expected the deputees reacted in the most inappropriate ways.



Just before Christmas 2015 the association L214 in France published some new videos of the foie gras industry. Female ducklings are of no use, so they are killed in a grinding machine. The males will have an even more terrible fate, being forced-fed for almost 3 weeks before they end up on the slaughter line. The video is difficult to watch, but please do! This industry has to stop! France and Belgium are the main foie gras producing countries in Europe.
