We are happy but France's agriculture minister has criticised Amazon after the internet retailer banned selling foie gras on its British website.

Not easy to get foie gras lovers to want to ban and boycott I,t wherever it is produced, sold or served, but possible with increased awareness and action.
Force feeding of geese, in this way, is shameful.
Fattening up pigs and cattle has been common practice for a very long time. Systematically, gorging geese for pate/ profit, is revolting.
Glad to know Amazon has helped make some progress on it's British website.

HOORAY!!! Thanks for this Jill - sadly I can't give you another green star as I just gave you a star for the rhino horn story - but this is wonderful!
