 Dear Sirs,
 I, the undersigned, do not want my tax money to subsidise the abuse and  torture that happens during bullfights and 'blood fiestas'. Bullfighting  is based on stressing, exhausting, injuring and/or killing bulls and  results in over 40.000 bull deaths per annum in the EU.Opposition to  bullfighting is mounting both in Spain and elsewhere. In April 2004, the  Barcelona City Council declared Barcelona an anti-bullfighting city in  an effort to eventually ban this primitive blood sport. Since then, 38  other Catalan municipalities have followed suit. I call on the  Commission to take further steps to ensure that EU farm subsidies cannot  begiven to farmers who breed bulls to
be used in bullfighting.
I urge  the Commission to work toward an EU-wide ban on bullfighting.
 Sincerely.
