Call-in Day: Tell L’Adour to drop foie gras
L’Adour, a french restaurant in downtown Syracuse has continued to host foie gras on the menu despite years of protests and complaining customers. After a successful Valentine’s demonstration which drew 19 protesters, we want to keep the pressure on L’adour until the next time activists come to their door. Visit to educate yourself about foie gras and then, on March 5th, which is during a $75 per person ‘Mardi Gras Masque’ give the staff at L’Adour a call to express your
displeasure about their support of the foie gras industry. L’Adour has claimed that they get their foie gras from Hudson Valley Foie Gras, which has been cited for numerous animal welfare and environmental pollution violations. Tell them you are boycotting their restaurant until it is removed
from the menu. L’Adour’s phone number is: 315-475-7653. It is not uncommon that you will be hung up on, but it is important to remain polite but firm.
When: Saturday, March 5th, 2011. L’Adour’s Saturday hours are 8am-10pm.
Where: Anywhere your phone is

>Inspiring Action for Animals Presentation

Join the New York Chapter of Mercy For Animals for free food, warm drinks and an inspiring presentation about the simple actions each of us can take to help put an end to needless cruelty to animals.

For years there has been a solid base of vegans, vegetarians and animal rights activists in the Syracuse area. This Inspiring Action for Animals presentation seeks to unite the animal-friendly Syracuse community in an effort to create a society in which all animals are treated with the respect and compassion they so rightly deserve.

This heart felt presentation reminds viewers that cows, pigs, chickens and other farmed animals are fascinating, intelligent and emotional beings much like our dogs and cats at home before showing how modern industrial farming has changed the way these animals are viewed and treated by our society.

With a strong call to action, this presentation leaves the audience with a powerful message of hope and pragmatic tips about how each of us can help end needless cruelty to animals.

Great tasting vegan food will be generously provided by Strong Hearts Café, which has been serving affordable and delicious animal, earth and health friendly food in Syracuse since 2008. This event is free and open to the public.

When: Saturday, February 26 · 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Where:Westcott Community Center, 826 Euclid Avenue, Syracuse
