Subject: foie gras -- ALERT
I just received an e-mail from Farm Sanctuary, and they are very
concerned that the governor will VETO the foie gras bill unless he
hears from A LOT of people who strongly support this legislation.
The foie gras bill is now one of the bills that you can support with
an automated phone call (i.e., you no longer have to wait for an
operator). Farm Sanctuary has conveniently provided the info for us:
Call 916-445-2841. In the automated message,
press 2 to voice concern on a bill,
then press 4 to comment on SB 1520,
then press 1 to support the bill.
Farm Sanctuary asks: Please call as many times as you can, and urge
everyone you know to do the same! The phones have been very busy, so
if you don't get through the first time, just try back later.
You can also email the governor using his web form at email
On the subject line, scroll to "Force
fed birds/SB01520" and choose "SUPPORT" to show your support for
Finally, I'm not (yet!) a member of many of the local veggie groups,
so I can't send e-mails to them. Will someone please forward this
to B.A.A.R.N., the East Bay group, IDA, etc? Let's get the word out!
Thank you so much!
