Tuesday, April 25th 2017

Tauromaquia es Violencia
On Saturday May 13, CAS International will protest against bullfightng in the Spanish capital of Madrid. The protest ‘Tauromaquia es Violencia’ (Bullfighting is Violence) is part of a campaign of 17 organizations, among others CAS. Its main object is to end all types of events with bulls. We have united our efforts and will hold a big protest starting at 16:00 hrs. The starting location is Calle Bailén 8, Madrid.

On May 11 the festival called Feria de isidro will start in Madrid, a city festival with animal abuse. 27 bullfights, 2 novilladas (bullfights with young bulls) and 4 rejones (bullfights where the bullfighter fights the bull from a horse) will take place. At least 204 animals will be killed. In 2016, 20,000 bovid were killed in Spain, including 1,736 bulls during bullfights and 16,383 animals in the cruel town feasts. Bullfighting is violence, there is no doubt about it.

Raise your voice for these animals on May 13 in Madrid. We no longer tolerate this animal abuse and it subsidizing.

You can protest against bullfighting in London on May 13 too. A solidarity protest will take place there. For more information take a look at the facebook page of the event in London.
