VICTORY! Catalonia Bans Bullfighting!

VICTORY! Catalonia Bans Bullfighting!

Tags: bullfighting, Catalonia, Spain, bulls, cows, victory

Three cheers for Catalonia, which today became the first major region in mainland Spain to ban bullfighting! Cheers broke out in the assembly as the vote was passed 68 to 55. Phew!

Thanks to the inspiring campaigning of Catalonian animal advocates and all those who supported the campaign, thousands of bulls in Catalonia will be spared a cruel and gruesome death in the name of 'entertainment'.

In the lead up to the vote, the Catalonian Parliament receieved thousands upon thousands of petition signatures, letters and emails from caring people in Spain and all across the world (including nearly a thousand Unleashed members) in support of a ban. If you signed a petition, wrote a letter, or helped in any way to achieve this historical victory, then thank you!

Time for a fiesta!

Great News!! This will put pressure on other areas to ban this horrible act too.... Just like sow stalls and caged eggs will slowly but surely be banned and removed across Australia! Kicking Ass For The Animals!!!!

Lets hope the rest of the country can now feel the pressure and get rid of this barbaric custom altogether.
Its like anything, if people do not go they have no market for this.
Well done, this is great news.
