Bullfighting and politicians who support it: a shame for Europe

 

Spain, PACMA – Partido Animalista

For months, the government has tried to avoid deliberately talking about the aid it would allocate to the bullfighting sector. But, finally, he has decided to support him with public money, as always, yielding to his pressures.

First, already last June, the Minister of Culture and Sports, José Manuel Rodríguez Uribes, announced that workers in the bullfighting sector could avail themselves of the CREA fund, a line of credit of 40 million euros for «professionals of the Fine Arts”(!!!)

And now, when we are still in the middle of unprecedented health and social crisis, and instead of allocating public money to strengthen the health system, the Government decides to include an extraordinary aid for workers in the bullfighting sector of 775 euros per month for three months.

More public money for paid animal abusers.

A government that calls itself progressive should not give aid to bullfighting to desperately try to revive it, but rather work for its definitive ban. In its day, Unidas Podemos promised a referendum on bullfighting, but instead of carrying it out, it gives in to pressure from bullfighting.

As always, PACMA is the only political party that is on the side of the animals, without exceptions or half measures.

We will continue working for the definitive end of bullfighting.

 And I mean…What is Podemos’ promise to hold a referendum to ban bullfighting?

Instead of working to make this mess illegal, the government of PSOE (Socialists) and Podemos are supporting the animal abusers with public money.

In 2007, EU parliamentarians presented a written declaration on an EU-wide ban on bullfighting.
As was to be expected, there were not enough supporters in Parliament at the time.

In November 2013, Spain declared bullfighting as “cultural heritage”, thereby legally protecting the murder in Arenas.

In terms of education, Spain is at the very back of Europe, which is also noticeable in the fact that traditions from the Middle Ages are perceived with enthusiasm and are declared a cultural heritage, which would only deter and disgust any other educated person.

The fact that even children are allowed to watch the bloody spectacle and cruelty to animals shows that only money counts for the bullfighting industry because with it no child can get education, empathy, or humanity.

And that although the majority of the Spanish population is not behind it – only about 14 percent support the senseless bloodshed.

We will not stop fighting this disgrace in Europe.

We won’t look the other way just because some politicians still want to pay protection money to the bullfighting mafia!

My best regards to all, Venus
