Campanet anti-bullfighting municipality  ©

The Spanish municipalities of Campanet and Deia (Mallorca) have declared themselves as anti-bullfighting municipalities. Eleven municipalities have declared themselves against bullfighting on the Spanish Island till now. This has been achieved thanks to our campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ (Mallorca without Blood). The total number of anti-bullfighting municipalities in Mallorca is now 15!

Thanks to political lobby the municipalities of Campanet and Deia decided to discuss the initiative to stop bullfighting. In Deia the city council decided unanimously to declare the city as anti-bullfighting municipality. The conservative political party PP, that usually supports bullfighting, did approve the initiative. In Campanet 4 members of the city council voted in favour of the declaration, 4 other members voted against it, and there were 3 abstentions. Thanks to the positive vote of the major of the city, a vote that counts dubbel, Campanet could be declared as anti-bullfighting municipality as well.

The main objective of ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’, a campaign of AnimaNaturalis and CAS International, is to abolish bullfighting on the Spanish Island of Mallorca. Several successes have been achieved in the meantime.

The list of anti-bullfighting municipalities now numbers 124 worldwide.

We have reached more than 60,000 signatures. You may help us actively so we can collect more signatures to convince the local politicians to forbid bullfighting on Mallorca. Please help us by signing and sharing the petition!
