Successes in Mallorca

Mallorca Sense Sang For the end of bullfighting @ Mallorca Sense Sang

With the campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ (for a bloodless Mallorca), an initiative of AnimaNaturalis and CAS, we have scored our first successes! The main objective of ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ is to abolish bullfighting from the Spanish Island Mallorca. The greatest success until now is the declaration of the municipality Artà as anti-bullfighting municipality.

Thanks to the political lobbying done by members of the campaign a motion has been submitted to ask the municipality of Artà to declare itself as anti-bullfighting. Finally the motion has been adopted with 6 votes in favour, 0 against and 5 abstentions.

Furthermore, Deparkel, an association that supports people with Parkinson, has decided not to accept money from the bullfighting sector anymore. Sometimes bullfights are organized to raise money for good causes. We are very happy that Deparkel made this decision thanks to the campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’.

In the mean time, 15,000 people have signed the petition and 15 companies support us. You can help us to collect more signatures to persuade the politicians in Mallorca to ban bullfighting on the whole island. Please sign the petition and share it in the social media!
