The beneficiaries are six bullfighting associations, which will organize children’s activities such as bullfighting workshops, bullfighting painting contests, and literary contests, even magazine publications, colloquium talks, and even bullfights with death.
Six bullfighting associations are going to receive 44,000 euros from the government of the Region of Murcia to develop dissemination activities and support for bullfighting during 2021.
The activities they will carry out range from a contest for bullfighters without picadors to bullfighting workshops for children, children’s bullfighting painting contests, magazine publications, colloquium talks, or literary contests.
The beneficiaries are the Torre-Pacheco Bullfighting Club Association, the Peña Taurina Yeclana, the Lorca Bullfighting Club, the Cehegín Bullfighting Club, the Murcia Bullfighting Club, and the Calasparra Bullfighting Club.
The objective of this measure is to increase the dissemination of bullfighting, promote it and bring it closer to society through different actions of both a recreational and cultural nature.
The Director-General of Local Administration, Francisco Abril, stressed that “currently there are certain sectors opposed to the visibility and dissemination of bullfighting as what it has always been: a fundamental expression of the traditional culture of the Spanish people. That is why it was essential to start these grants, to promote the sector and increase knowledge about the festival, especially among young people ”.
From AnimaNaturalis we believe that it is a scandal that in the midst of a pandemic and economic crisis due to Covid19, a government decides to allocate public money to the promotion of an activity that the majority of Spaniards reject, and also neighbors of Murcia.
And I mean…Public money again for the indoctrination of Spanish children into the torture of defenseless animals…
Bullfighting and bull festivals violate any ethics of modern civilized countries and societies and value a “culture” of primitive people
Education and the future of Spanish children are not worth a cent in and for Spain.
One notices that every single day.
As the Pisa study shows, in terms of education, Spain is at the bottom of the list in Europe, which is also noticeable in the fact that traditions from the Middle Ages are followed with enthusiasm.
One must be very primitive to be able to believe that in modern Europe one can get away with this kind of cruelty to animals in the long term.
Time is ticking for the animals and we know it will end.
My best regards to all, Venus
