Taste the Cruelty events

NotPeta | 05.06.2008 16:00 | Animal Liberation | Birmingham | London

At selected locations around the country Channel4 in partnership with Sainsbury's are bringing extreme cruelty to city centre locations.

'Imagine a picnic in a park. Now multiply it by thousands of people. Invite all the best restaurants in the area to contribute the food, and discerning vintners to bring the bottles. Make sure some of the guests are famous chefs happy to help out with cooking hints, and organise live music to eat and drink by. This is a Taste Festival.'

Actually it's a pretty sick event, where people get to eat animals that have been exploited for the mere taste of their flesh.

'Taste of Edinburgh – 29 May - 1 June
Taste of Leeds – 5-8 June
Taste of London – 19-22 June
Taste of Bath – 3-6 July
Taste of Birmingham – 10-13 July

Taste Festivals Ireland
Taste of Dublin – 12-15 June
Taste of Cork – 27-29 June'

The Leeds, London and Birmingham events will all be supporting and promoting the trade in foie gras. They will be showcasing the extreme lengths they are willing to pursue in animal cruelty to provide their taste sensations.
