ANIMAL rights activists are planning to demonstrate against a running of the bulls event.
Animal protection association AnimaNaturalis has organised a demonstration against the ‘correbou’ to be held tomorrow (Friday).
This demonstration is expected to take place at the same time as the correbou, according to Fornalutx mayor Joan Alberti.
“People would be in danger if both events coincide,” said Alberti who added the town council has asked the Government delegation on the Balearic Islands to place the demonstration at a distant site.
An AnimaNaturalis demonstration against the correbou in 2011 ended up with several violent clashes.
Meanwhile, association V de Vegana (V for Vegan) has called upon its members to demonstrate against the correbou on Friday as well.
They have asked people to stand against “cruel traditions” according to their profile on a social network site.
The correbous is the main event of the Fornalutx festivities to be held from tomorrow (Friday) until Sunday.
Fornalutx council has already bought a 400-kilograms bull that will be left in the streets of the town.
