Subject: Dª Irina Bokova: Toro de Jubilo

Dª Irina Bokova
Directora General de la UNESCO
D. Francesco Bandarin
Subdirector de la UNESCO

Estimada Senora Bokova.

Estimados Señores, Estimadas Senoras:

Esta carta pretende ser una petición de un gran número de Españoles et
de Franceses que nos sentimos ofendidos e impotentes de ver como un
años más, se celebrará en sus inmediaciones la popular fiesta llamada
"Toro de Júbilo".

El Toro de Júbilo, una fiesta legendaria y muy conocida en Medinaceli
pues data del siglo XVI, y somos conscientes de la tradición popular
que ha representado a la ciudad desde entonces, y entendemos la
apreciación que los lugareños tienen a ella. No obstante, es necesario
que se tenga en cuenta la opinión de una gran mayoría de españoles et
Franceses, que cada año vemos con desolación la celebración de esta
fiesta, que para nosotros, no es más que otro maltrato hacia un animal
indefenso e inocente.

Si bien es cierto que el animal no muere en la fiesta, este no es
argumento válido para justificar el sufrimiento físico y psicológico
que si padece, pues recordamos que se realiza en contra de su voluntad
y ejerciendo actos que van en contra de sus instintos naturales. Es
sabido que el fuego es temido por todos los animales, pues
inconscientemente saben que deben huir de él, y el hecho de exponer al
animal al fuego de una forma tan directa y cercana, provoca en él una
gran ansiedad y estrés, que se acentúa con la muchedumbre de personas
que se abarrotan por las calles, gritando y corriendo alrededor del
toro, que desconcertado al principio, intenta desprenderse de las
bolas de fuego y seguidamente deambula buscando un refugio, sin
obtener resultado.

Además, es necesario recordar que dicha fiesta estuvo prohibida desde
1966 hasta 1972, después de que unos reporteros británicos denunciaran
la fiesta, por la crueldad que emana, provocando que las mismas
autoridades españolas tuvieran que evitar la celebración de la misma.

Concluyo pues, haciéndoles una invitación a la reflexión. Hasta que
punto va a llegar España en las celebraciones de sus fiestas
populares? Es necesario todo este sufrimiento animal para nuestra
diversión? Realmente estamos respetando los derechos animales de los
que también deberían gozar los toros?

Les pido por favor, que reflexionen sobre esto, y tomen medidas de
concienciación de la población a fin de que el pueblo español dé, de
una vez por todas, un paso hacia delante en materia de respeto animal

Muchas gracias por su atención

"Y perdona el crimen se convierte en cómplice" (Voltaire)

Rodanero, tué l’an passé à Tordesillas.

Señores, Señoras,

Me acaba de llegar una información con respecto a la manifestación que tendrá lugar el 15 de septiembre y durante la cual un pobre toro será una vez mas víctima de una práctica horrible y bárbara en Tordesillas.

Es realmente imposible comprender, para una persona que forma parte de un mundo civilizado en Europa, que tal acto correspondiente a una mentalidad medieval pueda aun suceder en un país que se pretende civilizado, que declara esta actividad de interés turística y que además dirige esta monstruosidad con la intención de honorar la Virgen de la Peña - todo esto con la complicidad de una iglesia que acepta este acto bárbaro en lugar de enseñar el amor y el respeto hacia todos los seres vivientes.

España es un país muy interesante a todos puntos de vista y tiene mucho que ofrecer a los que desean visitarlo, pero le aseguro que por todas las razones arriba mencionadas, no visitaré de ninguna manera Tordesillas, Valladolid, o las comunidades de Castilla y Leon, mientras que este crimen hacia un toro siga siendo practicado.

Le saludo atentamente,

Google translation

Madam, Sir,

I just got information about the event held on September 15 during which a poor bull is once again the victim of a horrible and barbaric practice in Tordesillas.

It's really impossible to understand, for a person who is part of a civilized world in Europe, that such an act corresponding to a medieval mentality can even happen in a civilized country that is intended, declaring this activity tourist interest and also directs this monstrosity with the intention of honoring the Virgen de la Peña - all with the complicity of a church that accepts this barbaric act rather than teach love and respect for all living things.

Spain is a very interesting country to all views and has much to offer those who want to visit, but I assure you, for all the reasons mentioned above, I will not visit in any way Tordesillas, Valladolid, or communities of Castile and Leon, while this crime to a bull still practiced.

Yours sincerely,

Subject: Fiesta Mayor Espagne


Estimado Sr. Alcalde de Algemesí, Don Vicent R. García Mont:

Me he llevado una gran decepción al saber que, por nuevo año consecutivo, el Ayuntamiento autorizará las becerradas durante la Fiesta Mayor. Me parece un insulto que unas fiestas tan dignas de mención y de visita del público local, nacional e internacional se manchen con la sangre de inocentes becerros, para el disfrute de la gente que se divierte torturándoles.
Siento comunicarle que dejaré de asistir a su hermosa Fiesta Mayor, no porque no quiera una tradición, sino porque me duele la tortura a unos inocentes animales y que el Ayuntamiento embrutezca de esta manera a sus ciudadanos, en vez de fomentar en ellos los buenos sentimientos y el respeto por otros seres vivos, o de reforzar manifestaciones como La Muixeranga o las procesiones a la Mare de Deu de la Salut, que además, y con gran acierto, han sido declaradas como Patrimonio de la Humanidad, y no así las becerradas, como es lógico, ya que éstas producen un evidente rechazo ciudadano por su carácter cruel.
Algemesí está tomando fama internacional de comunidad torturadora de animales, me gustaría desmentirlo, pero mientras sigan permitiendo la tortura de animales en sus fiestas, no puedo dejar de desincentivar el turismo y las visitas a su Comunidad y Municipio.
Creo que Algemesi se merece un puesto más alto, como ciudad generosa y amable que es. Pero mientras esa cara no se les muestre a los animales, no volveré a visitar su ciudad y trabajaré para que otros se sumen a la causa a favor de unas fiestas sin sufrimiento animal.

Subject: Black day in Spain/ Please forward

Dear Friends,

It is with intense bitterness that I must inform you that today the bull Volante, the "Toro de la Vega", was horribly tortured and killed by a savage blood thirsty rabble in Tordesillas, Spain. That in spite of a petition of 70.000 signatures, a written warning by the PACMA (political party against bullfighting) last month concerning the illegality of the event, many letters of protest and the peaceful action of a group of activists today that were attacked, wounded and chased by criminals on foot and horseback.The bull should have been let go because in his terror and pain he did manage to reach the outside of the "allowed" area of play but they killed him anyway. This has been happening for hundreds of years and but for a four year respite in the late sixties nothing has changed, the same sadistic savagery carries on from generation to generation in that infamous town.

What's worse, there are many other events just as cruel happening in many parts of Spain every year. As an example and mild compared to the injuries inflicted on cattle before their killing, please look below at the hapless cow that gave birth in the middle of her torture on Sunday, look at the wounds on her shoulder. Can I count on your support to help stop these unspeakable "traditions" in Spain? If so please let me know, I and some activist friends are starting to work against next year's horrors today and would like to have your suggestions and comments. We need to go to the EU with this and any good contacts you may have there would be greatly appreciated. I believe we should all concentrate on the Toro de la Vega, because once we stop that, the other hundreds of similar events should be easier to stop.

There are plenty of photos and videos of today's dreadful event, the Spanish Channel 3 even broadcasted it live, I can send you all upon request once they have been compiled.

Best Wishes,

La tortura no es cultura

Only a few days to stop Toro de la Vega, so please sign and share 21 petitions in this photo.

 

What is Toro de la Vega? Every year, (this year scheduled for11 September,2012) one of the most bestial rituals takes place in the Kingdom of Spain : El Toro de la Vega of Tordesillas.
Toro de la Vega” a “fiesta” which consists of a hundred or more men armed with lances, harass the animal with their thrus

 

ting lances until the poor thing, bleeding profusely, riddled with holes, its flesh torn with the stabbing lances, can go no further and as he collapses someone sticks a dagger behind his head to then cuts off his testicles. This often happens when he is still alive, some witnesses have claimed. It is a slow form of torture, watched by a rowdy multitude of spectators, a sadistic form of fun for slaughters. And parents take their children to see and learn from this gruesome event
This indecent event has taken place for three centuries, except for some years when it was prohibited; what is incredible is that it was illegal until 1999 when the Junta de Castilla and Leon incomprehensibly legalized it.
Most petitions are in Spanish, we're sorry but it's not possible to post their translation here, but they're all to stop/ban this cruel "tradition"

Translation
Each year in Fornalutz (Mallorca, Spain) in September after a night of alcohol and partying, the townspeople prepare for their traditional festivity, "La Baixada des Bou"; in which a bull is tied by both horns and forced to run through the streets of the town while the townspeople, sometimes even children, shout and push and pull the bull. The bull, frightened, sometimes crashes into walls and slips while people, trying to control it yank the rope back and forth, making the bull suffer, disconcerted and stressed, even more.

Al Sr. Alcalde Don José Corchero Sánchez


Es con asombro y repugnancia que me entero que seis vaquillas serán atormentadas en sus fiestas este 25 de agosto, en presencia de niños además. No se puede comprender como en el siglo XXI Peñalsordo sigue sumido en la tortura de inocentes animales, seres que sufren el dolor y la angustia igual que nosotros, y exijo que este evento sea cancelado de forma permanente, de lo contrario mi familia y yo no visitaremos el pueblo nunca más.

Subject: Votre fête votive de Saint-Laurent-d'Aigouze est en fait un spectacle cruel!!!!! C'est une honte! (letter against bullfighting festivity (very Urgent)!!

http://www.facebook.com/events/330498353707315/

A novillada is scheduled for Saturday, August 18 (in less than 10 days) in Saint-Laurent-d Aigouze (Gard). This "novillada" is actually a bullfight with killing as you can see in this video made ​​in 2008 in the same city: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gx2l_santi-mario-a-st-laurent -d-aigouze_creation and as this article demonstrates: http://www.corrida.tv/rubriques/actualites/index.asp?id=1988.
Anti-bullfighting friends,we must act.
We ask you to send this mail as quickly as possible (it is within 9 days) to prevent the killings. It targets very specific personalities at the meeting, the senate, the European parliament, in commissions, departments and missions and very specific activities.

Monsieur, Madame, élu ou organisateur,

Une novillada est prévue le samedi 18 août prochain à Saint-Laurent-d'Aigouze (Gard). Cette "novillada" est en réalité une corrida avec mise à mort comme vous pouvez le constater sur cette vidéo faite en 2008 dans la même commune : http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x6gx2l_santi-mario-a-st-laurent-d-aigouze_creationet comme le démontre cet article : http://www.corrida.tv/rubriques/actualites/index.asp?id=1988.

L'office du tourisme et la mairie, que nous avons eu au téléhone ont, semble-t-il, voulu nous bluffer en prétendant qu'il n'y avait pas de mise à mort mais nous avons appris que les taureaux seraient issus de la Ganaderia Hubert Yonnet pour les maestros Medhi Savalli, Manuel Escribano et Tomasito. Il est alors bien évident que ces gens-là ne se délacent pas pour fumer le calumet de la paix mais bel et bien pour tuer du taureau à l’arme blanche.

Saint-Laurent-d'Aigouze est la "capitale" des Courses Camarguaises et la corrida assombrit cette image. Appeler cela "festival taurin" tient de la dissimulation pour faire croire aux novices que nous sommes que des animaux ne seront pas martyrisés et achevés à coup de couteau par des brutes en mal de gloire sous les yeux d'un public « d'afiocs » en transe suant la mort par tous les pores.

Je veux, par le présent courrier, réagir fermement contre cette fête votive de Saint-Laurent-d'Aigouze qui pratique la corrida et fait la promotion de ce spectacle cruel alors que 70% des Français sont contre cette barbarie. Comment en plein 21ème siècle, dans l'Europe où les consciences s'éveillent aux problèmes graves que connaît notre planète et à la disparition des espèces, de telles choses peuvent-elles encore se produire dans notre pays, dans votre ville monsieur le maire ?
L'homme est le pire des animaux lorsqu'il se comporte ainsi en s'abritant derrière la notion de tradition. Il fut un temps où l’on brulait des chrétiens dans les arènes car c'était la tradition Romaine ! Devions-nous suivre ces traditions ?

Désormais, j'éviterai de venir dans votre ville ou de conseiller à des amis de s'y rendre tant que je n'aurai pas la garantie que ces spectacles barbares qui s’y déroulent, sous votre responsabilité, ont définitivement cessé. De plus, par le biais de diverses associations anti-corrida, je me ferai un devoir de signaler votre ville aux Offices du Tourisme comme une ville pratiquant la torture sur des taureaux et se réjouissant de la souffrance animale. Le Sénat, l’Assemblée Nationale et Européenne seront également avisées.

Avec l'expression de mon profond regret.

yet another terrifying abuse to murder in the name of the friek Zulu culture.
The Zulu monarchy of South Africa needs to be shamed and stopped. NA

Each December, a single bull in South Africa is brutally killed by 40 men
with their bare hands.

Each year, more than 40,000 bulls are barbarically slaughtered in bullrings around the world.From the moment they enter the ring, the bulls don't stand a chance. They may be weakened by beatings with sandbags, debilitated with laxatives, drugged, have their horns shaved to impair their navigation, or have petroleum jelly rubbed into their eyes to impair their ability to judge distance.

In a typical Spanish bullfight, the bull enters the arena and is approached by picadors—men on blindfolded horses who drive lances into the bull's back and neck muscles. This impairs the bull's ability to lift his head and defend himself. They twist and gouge the lances to ensure significant blood loss.

Then banderilleros enter on foot, distract the bull, and dart around him while plunging banderillas—brightly colored sticks with harpoon points on their ends—into his back. When the bull has become weakened from blood loss, the banderilleros run the bull in circles until he becomes dizzy and stops chasing.

Finally, the matador appears and, after provoking a few exhausted charges from the dying animal, tries to kill the bull with his sword. If he misses, succeeding only in further mutilating the animal, an executioner is called in to stab the exhausted and submissive bull to death. The dagger is supposed to cut the animal's spinal cord, but even this can be blundered, leaving the bull conscious but paralyzed as he is chained by his horns and dragged out of the arena.

If the crowd is happy with the matador, the bull's ears and tail are cut off and presented as trophies. A few minutes later, another bull enters the arena and the sadistic cycle starts again.

The tourist industry is one of the biggest supporters of bullfighting. Travel agents and bullfight promoters portray the fight as a festive and fair competition. They don't tell tourists that the bull never has a chance to defend himself, much less to survive. Most foreign visitors who witness a bullfight are repulsed, disgusted, and saddened by the cruelty of the spectacle and never want to see one again.
