Protesters take to streets against bullfight

  • Among the demonstrators were representatives from political parties, Podemos and Izquierda Unida, as well as animal rights organisations

Around 200 people took part in a demonstration against a planned bullfight in Vélez-Málaga last Saturday. Among the demonstrators were representatives from political parties, Podemos and Izquierda Unida, as well as animal rights organisations. The message, which was carried on banners and chanted, read, “No to bullfighting. Torture isn’t art or culture.” Vélez-Málaga announced the return of bullfighting to the town, due to take place on 10 June, earlier this year, months after signing a declaration making it “a town free of animal mistreatment”.
