Spanish demonstration against bull-killing ‘sport’

This is a Spanish video, explaining why people demonstrate against bull-killing ‘sports’.

It says about itself (translated):

22 August 2013

For 8 years, the Party for the Animals in Spain PACMA has been trying to end the Toro de la Vega. So over the years we have carried out various activities in Tordesillas. These events and the celebration itself have been recorded and broadcast in so many ways that they have had extensive media coverage.

Furthermore, in 2011 the campaign “Break a lance” started, supported by numerous well-known people in our country who gave more impact to our campaign.

This year PACMA has decided to ask for political responsibility to the major parties: PSOE as the mayor of Tordesillas belongs to this party, and PP as they are the government of Castilla y León and have regulations which allow barbaric bullfighting.

Therefore this year 2013, we have organized a demonstration in Madrid on 14 September at 17.00 to go from the Plaza de Colón to Plaza de España. We will pass in front of the headquarters of the PP and the PSOE in order to ask for the end of the Toro de la Vega.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

SPAIN: Thousands of people gathered in Madrid on Saturday to protest against an annual bull-spearing event which they describe as an act of extreme abuse.

The demonstrators broke wooden spears in a symbolic act against animal torture and marched against the annual Toro de la Vega event.

During the event, men riding on horseback drive a bull into a field and then kill it with spears.
