About 80 protesters upset about the repeal of Chicago's foie gras ban are holding a candlelight vigil outside City Hall Friday night.
Besides candles, the demonstrators also are holding up signs with photos of ducks that were overfed to produce foie gras. One grisly photo showed a duck with a beak that allegedly was broken when a feeding tube was jammed down its throat.
The signs read: "Delicacy of despair" and "Too cruel to swallow."
But not many people are around to notice the protest, which began hours after City Hall closed for the week.
