The Brigitte Bardot Foundation impeded a training meeting that was to take place in Grenoble to explain the proper ritual sacrifice of lamb for Eid al-Adha. According to the foundation, such meeting encouraged “secretive slaughters,” and the Minister of the Interior Michèle Alliot-Marie intervened so that the municipality would not allow the group to meet in a public space. The Association of Information and the Defense of Muslim Consumers (Asidcom or l’Association de sensibilisation d’information et de défense du consommateur musulman), helped organize the initial meeting, and claim that in 2007, 130,000 lambs were legally slaughtered and 70,000 clandestinely for Eid, celebrated in December.
