Dear Friends,

We just discovered today that two barbaric festivals that are held in Spain every year are candidates to Intangible Heritage of Spain. We are talking of S. Fermin , Pamplona and “Rapas das Bestas” a festival where wild horses are gathered and shaved by force.

For more information about this last one please see:

These candidacies are being promoted by the International Bureau of Cultural Capitals, from all the candidates that entered in the competition 10 will be chosen as Intangible Heritage of Spain.

In this moment there are 13 candidates and the deadline is 31st of May. After this date they will proceed to vote. It’s very important that you protest without stopping.

We cannot allow that festivals of torture can be accepted as Intangible Heritage of Spain. We want to point out also that if these two candidates win, the next phase will be to be considered as Intangible Heritage of the World by UNESCO.

Let’s not forget that since 2005 bullfighters have been trying to promote bullfighting as an Intangible Heritage of the World.

If they succeed with this, they are half way there.
