United Against Bullfighting

Injured bull in the arena after being attacked by matador, SpainAll around the world, people agree – chasing, stabbing, mutilating and killing a bull isn’t very entertaining, nor does it constitute “culture”, in Spain or anywhere else. So, upon learning that over the next few weeks, the Spanish government is considering legislation to protect and promote bullfighting and recognise it as cultural heritage, international animal rights groups decided to take action – together!

PETA has joined forces with Humane Society International, the League Against Cruel Sports, World Society for the Protection of Animals, CAS International and Spanish group Fundación de Ayuda a los Animales to oppose the plans to protect bullfighting, which could result in spending public money to prop up the barbaric “sport” and might even threaten existing bans in regions such as Catalonia.

In addition to mobilising, collectively, tens of thousands of supporters to write to the Spanish embassies in their countries, the coalition of organisations will also sign a joint letter to Spain’s culture committee explaining why protecting bullfighting is the wrong decision – for animals and for Spain.


We’re stronger when we act together. Our combined voice will send a powerful message to the Spanish authorities – so please, join the movement by taking action today. You can also show your support on Twitter by tweeting with the hashtag #LoveSpainHateBullfights.
