Belgian animal rights activist group GAIA has made these prints as part of a campaign against the French cuisine delicacy Foie gras.
MoreWith these prints, Belgian animal rights activist group GAIA started an advertising campaign against the French cuisine delicacy Foie gras, which is made of the liver of duck or goose.
Foie gras - or “fatty liver” - is still a very popular Christmas and year end dinner dish in Belgium. Because most people don’t know it’s made from the grotesquely enlarged livers of ducks and geese, the result of horrifying force-feeding.
The campaign was supposed to run in 40 major Belgian railway stations… but the railway company refused the posters because they are “too shocking”.
