Mayor Richard Daley and his City Council allies repealed the city’s foie gras ban this week before animal rights activists could mobilize and make a peep in protest.
But foie gras foes are determined not to let the mayor clip their wings, planning a candlelight vigil at 7 p.m. Friday at City Hall as a demonstration against the reversal of the ban.
According to a statement from leaders of the Chicago-based Mercy for Animals, the purpose of the vigil is "to mourn the loss of the humane measure and pay tribute to horrific suffering endured by ducks."
Around 80 people showed up to protest
