The end of bullfighting in the autonomous Spanish Balearic Islands is getting closer! As part of our campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang'  (Mallorca without Blood) the authorities of the island of Mallorca declared themselves against bullfighting. This declaration was achieved thanks to 20 votes in favor from the political parties Podemos, Més per Mallorca, PI and PSIB, 8 votes against from PP and 2 abstentions. The next step is to achieve a prohibition on bullfighting on all Balearic Islands. With a prohibition the Balearic Islands would become the third autonomous state in Spain which has banned bullfighting.

‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ is a campaign of CAS International and AnimaNaturalis. 25 municipalities have declared themselves against bullfighting in the Spanish Island until now. We already achieved that Palma de Mallorca, the capital of the autonomous Spanish Balearic Islands, declared itself against bullfighting! The total number of anti-bullfighting municipalities in Mallorca is now 29!

The list of anti-bullfighting municipalities now numbers 142 worldwide. There are now 118 municipalities in Spain that declared themselves against bullfighting. We have reached now more than 140,000 signatures. You can be part of the end of bullfighting in the Balearic Islands by helping us so we can collect more signatures: please help us by signing and sharing the petition!
