Berkoff in animal rights protest

Steven has taken part in a protest outside London's Fortnum & Mason shop to show the public the cruelty inherent in foie gras production.

"Berkoff took time out to team up with PETA in protest of Fortnum & Mason's shameful sales of a product that the government has deemed too cruel to produce in the UK. The action comes on the eve of a meeting between PETA representatives and Fortnum & Mason management about the department store's continued sale of foie gras.  To create foie gras – French for "fatty liver" – up to two kilograms of mash are pumped into the stomachs of ducks and geese through a pipe two or three times a day. Birds used in foie gras production live in crowded and filthy conditions, and they often become severely depressed, stop grooming themselves and sit shaking in fear and pain as they await the next assault."
