Massive Anti-Bullfighting Demonstration in France

Posted by 4 years ago | Permalink | Comments (13)

In a tour de force, more than 2,000 citizens from 177 groups, including PETA France, took to the streets of Paris on Saturday to speak out against bullfighting.

After marching through the nation’s capital, past the UNESCO office, the activists gathered at the foot of the Eiffel Tower to illuminate a giant banner reading, “Corrida Abolition” (“Abolish Bullfighting”).

With the Eiffel Tower in the background, the activists raised a lit banner.

The demonstration follows another event in which 95 activists staged a peaceful sit-in protest in a bull ring in Rodilhan, only to be physically attacked by the pro-bullfighting crowd.

Countless bulls are violently stabbed to death in arenas throughout France. You can help end this so-called “sport” – take action for bulls today.

    Merci pour votre très important relais international.
    C’ est ainsi que peu à peu notre message contre la barbarie fait son chemin, et touche de plus en plus de monde.
    Un monde lequel jusqu’ à présent donnait l’ impression d’être indifférent.
    Des liens nouveaux se tissent, des formules jaillissent, des images percutantes frappent.
    La triste réalité de la corrida est désormais perçue à sa vraie place.
    Le meilleur moyen pour vider les arènes et parvenir à les éradiquer définitivement.

    un grand merci à tous les militants étrangers qui sont venus souvent de très loin pour nous aider à abolir cette abomination qu’est la corrida

    It takes a sad, sick person to enjoy the torture and death of a beautiful creature. It’s time to find something else to amuse you. You will soon be in the history books where you belong.
