Longtime animal rights activist Pamela Anderson is taking her dedication to vegan living one step further by opening a restaurant in France, her new home, that will not serve any meat or daily products. The announcement is buried in a tribute to her boyfriend, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is trapped inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Anderson wants to convince political leaders around the world to help Assange become a free citizen once again. The Barbed Wire actress writes:
I am reaching out to Emmanuel Macron, and to his wife Brigitte Trogneux. As a resident of France, my adopted home, I would like to meet with you and discuss Julian's situation. I am opening a new vegan restaurant in France in July, and I would like to extend my invitation to the new President and his First Lady. Join me on the day I open the doors, and we will sit and eat good food and discuss what can be done for Julian. France could display its strength, and so could you, if you give Julian asylum.
And in a new update on her homepage, the former Baywatch star explains that she’s partnering with chef Christophe Leroy on this new temporary restaurant in the southwestern commune of Ramatuelle. The restaurant, dubbed La Table du Marché, is part of the country inn called Les Moulins de Ramatuelle, which is owned and operated by Leroy. According to Pam’s website, La Table du Marché will open on July 4 for 50 nights only. The announcement is accompanied by a series of photos of Anderson posing in the French countryside with a golden retriever.
No word yet on whether the President of France and his wife will take Pam Anderson up on the offer to dine at her seasonal vegan restaurant and wine bar in the south of France, but he’d be a fool not to at least seriously consider this invitation.
