The corrida, or bullfight, has long been a part of Spanish life. But this week the Catalan parliament in Barcelona will consider a proposal to ban it, becoming the first region in of Spain to do so.

"All the activists see the blood, they don't see the art. The fight is the struggle between man and beast, transformed into art."

How can anyone possibly consider this barbarity to be "Art" !!

It's just brutal torture and killing!! The poor bull in this photo is being finished off with a dagger to the head...the pain and torment he has been subject to is beyond words..

Once again on tenterhooks!
While the majority of good Spanish people are opposed, more often than not, governments simply turn a blind eye when there's a buck to be made - as we well know here in Oz!
Fervently hoping for once sanity prevails - these hideous practices have no place whatsoever in any society which lays claim to being "civilised."
Thanks, Anne - fingers firmly crossed!

VICTORY! The vote has passed and there WILL be a debate next year! Congratulations Prou - this a historic day for animals!

Support the Catalonian people and say ‘enough’
