Spain: The bullfighting industry is broke

 

Bullfighting celebrations are not the second show in this country by a number of spectators, as they claim from the bullfighting sector, but the tenth, behind football, cinema, monuments and sites, museums, current music concerts, and classical music, exhibitions, theater and art galleries.

 

The bullfighting sector is the show that gets the lowest mark in relation to the interest it arouses among citizens.

Only 8% of Spaniards went to a bullring in 2019, according to the “Survey of Cultural Habits and Practices” in Spain.

The cinema, the second show that brings together the most people after soccer, was attended by 57.8 percent of those surveyed.

It is followed by monuments (49.3%), museums (40.5%), current music concerts (30.1%), art exhibitions (29.8%), theater (24.5%), archaeological sites (21.8%), and classical music concerts (9.4%), which outperform bull shows for the first time in public.

And I mean…Unfortunately, these statistics do not tell us how many Spaniards are against bullfighting.
If one does not attend bullfighting, it does not necessarily mean that he is also against it.

There are also many people who don’t go to the theater, but most of them (at least in Germany) agree that theater should be subsidized with public money.

When the bullfighting was recognized as a national cultural heritage on November 7, 2013, the bull mafia was delighted.
Because that would mean subsidizing taxpayers’ money.
But business has been going bad for years and now is worse in the Corona Krisis.

The bullfighting industry expects a loss of 200 million euros.
Now would be the right time to end the matter once and for all.

Nevertheless, even the left-wing government of PSOE and Podemos, (the latter declared itself to be the enemies of this spectacle), have so far not dared to put an end to the bloody spectacle. Behind it are a strong lobby and powerful industry.

 

My best regards to all, Venus
