Despite a ban put in place in 2006 by the governor of Veracruz, the festival continues. Furthermore, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has named Tlacotalpan a "World Heritage Site," a prestigious title given to locations of cultural or physical significance.
Please contact city and state officials and urge them to ban this bloody and sadistic "tradition." Ask UNESCO to revoke Tlacotalpan's World Heritage Site status in light of this shameful event, and let Mexican tourism officials know that you will not travel to Tlacotalpan or Veracruz until this horrifying festival is brought to an end.

Already signed - it is time for these people to admit that this is deliberate torture of animals which has nothing to do with any form of culture, tradition or religion, other than being part of a culture of cruelty.
