Protest against the #corrida, September 28, 2021
Congratulations to these volunteers who threw themselves into the arena to save the lives of the bulls.
Thanks for your courage !!
Animals are not objects for our enjoyment but living beings to be respected.
Boycott anything involving the use of animals.
And I mean…In November 2013, bullfighting in Spain was declared an “intangible cultural heritage” and the bloody slaughter was protected by law.
At the time, this decision could only be justified by the fact that the highly corrupt Spanish People’s Party ( PP ) (under the then Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy) tried to save the dying business of the bullfighting industry from collapse
It must be said that this has made it possible to promote the struggles with public money to this day.
According to a Spanish MP, around 130 million euros flow from the EU to Spanish fighting bull breeders every year.
Around 31 million euros of this came from Germany.
According to ANOET, the umbrella organization for bullfighting events, sales rose to over 3.5 billion euros in 2014; an estimated 200,000 people are directly employed by the organizers and the arenas.
Bullfighting is therefore much more than an “intangible cultural heritage” – it has been an industry that has been functioning well for years and makes billions in profits every year.
Where there is blood, pain, and torture, there will never be art, valor, and culture.
According to recent surveys, around 70 percent of Spaniards are against bullfighting. In fact, the majority of the audience is now reduced to retirees, visitors over the age of 60 and tourists.
We are now thousands, and thousands upon thousands, who want to abolish the bloody spectacle.
We are fighting to finally put an end to the corridas. The brave activists should know that they are not alone.
More and more anti-corrida people are standing behind them.
We thank you!
There is no other way to put it, people like you will make history!
My best regards to all, Venus
