Hello, this email is about our Foie gras campaign. We are doing another action this Friday at Blue Hour restaurant: 250 NW 13th Ave Portland, OR 97209. (503) 226-3394

What we want to organize:

1. Phone jam all day Friday from 11:30 am until demo time asking them to stop selling FG.
503-226-3394 or 503-221-3005. Bruce Carey is the owner and Kenny Giambalvo is owner/chef

2. Pre demo uniformity and solidarity meeting is at 6:30 pm at NW 10th and Davis right near Blossoming Lotus. Then, at 7pm we will demo Blue Hour. Tim has already sent out letters and we gave them FG video, which they probably have not watched!

3. tactics:
signs
constant chanting
designated educators and flier people to engage customers
bull horns
drums
fliers (Suzanne has some)
do not take anything that if offered to you by Blue Hour, such as water or french fries, so bring your own libations
*****Please make a message t-shirt with FG slogans on it if you can: Like "force fed ducks foie gras sucks" An old t-shirt should work

*****If anyone can procure a lawn goose and bring it and force feed it oatmeal for a bit of street theatre, that would be excellent!!!

4. Chants: Learn these chants if you can:

a, do some thing that's right
take foie gras off the menu tonight

b. force fed ducks
foie gras sucks

c. Blue Hour sucks
force fed ducks

d. shame on you
shame on you
shame on you

e. we won't be here
if you take foie gras off the menu

f. that's not dinner
that's diseased liver

g. your money, your choice
ducks and geese have no voice
