Protests against financial support for bullfighting in Spain

Protests against financial support for bullfighting in Spain

This summer, CAS International and AnimaNaturalis organized several protests in Spain against bullfighting. During these protests we requested the government not to give any financial support to the bullfighting sector. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, most bullfights planned in 2020 have been canceled, and the sector is demanding financial compensation.

Last weekend we protested in the Andalusian city of Málaga, and earlier this summer in Madrid and Alicante. Although bullfights ultimately did not take place in these cities due to the measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, we felt it was necessary to protest: he bullfights have been canceled, but are still not prohibited. And the bullfighting sector is asking for financial help. They even protested at the Ministry of Employment (and destroyed the minister’s car). We continue to ask the Spanish Government, always politely and peacefully, not to provide financial compensation to this bloody sector. The money they ask for can be better used on healthcare. Thanks to the pressure we are exerting, no support has been given to the bullfighting sector so far.

We continue to put pressure on the Spanish Government. In September we will protest in Logroño and Valencia. CAS and AnimaNaturalis have set up a campaign: you can send a letter to the Spanish government asking not to save the bullfighting sector. Currently, more than 171,000 people have sent the letter. Click here to also send a letter to the Spanish government.
