Stop bullfighting!

Bullfighting is a disgrace for our country, period. Fortunately, according to the latest surveys, in present Spain there are more people who are either indifferent or against than in favour. And we are on the increase. For sure it depends on regions: the “antitaurino” movement is very strong in Catalonia (56 towns -53 in Catalonia- are officially against) and perhaps weaker in regions where it’s identified with some kind of Spanish essence, whatever it means.

Just google the word “antitaurino” and you’ll run into a quite different Spain. For example, you can visit www.thebulltribune.org, www.latortura.es or  www.asaltoalruedo.org .

If you are a foreigner, I ask you not to support this crime. Don’t attend a corrida as part of your visit. On the contrary, do give publicity to Spanish antitaurino movements.
