Denver – As a part of a nationwide blitz on Uchi eating places, animal advocates will collect outdoors the chain’s Lawrence Avenue location on Saturday with pictures of staff force-feeding geese for foie gras, slamming the enterprise for providing the cruelly produced dish banned by quite a few corporations, together with Costco, IKEA, Sam’s Membership, Goal, and Entire Meals and greater than a dozen international locations.

When:    Saturday, December 17, 4–5 p.m.

The place:    Exterior Uchi, 2500 Lawrence St., Denver

The duck defenders will expose the hideous manufacturing course of behind foie gras, together with that a number of kilos of fats and grain are pumped into birds’ stomachs day by day by way of tubes shoved down their throats, inflicting their livers to swell to as much as 10 occasions their regular measurement. Investigations into foie gras farms within the U.S. and Europe have revealed sick, dying, and lifeless animals, some with holes of their necks from force-feeding accidents.

“Dishing up the diseased livers of force-fed birds is appalling and unjustifiable,” says PETA Government Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is asking on Uchi to return into the 21st century and ban this ‘delicacy of despair.’”

Comparable actions will happen on the identical day outdoors Uchi eateries in Dallas and Austin, Texas.

PETA—whose motto reads, partially, that “animals will not be ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
