SEVERAL animal rights groups continue pushing the council to make Palma de Mallorca a bullfighting-free city.
The campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ (Mallorca without blood), created by associations AnimaNaturalis and CAS International, will hold a festive parade on July 25 calling for Palma to put an end to bullfighting locally. The demonstration will depart from Palma Town Hall and will finish at the bullring.
The protest is to be hosted only five days before the council’s plenary session, in which a law to ban bullfighting will be put forward by several local political forces.
“We expect this parade to be the last one held in the Balearic capital,” said coordinator of the campaign, Guillermo Amengual. “We are sure that the few bullfights which will be held in Palma this year will be the last ones. We are only a few days away from reaching a historic achievement, and putting an end to years of animal torture for the pleasure of a few.”
The campaign Mallorca Sense Sang was born in 2014 with the aim of banning bullfights in the Island. It has already seen 130,000 people sign up in support and 17 municipalities across the island have been announced ‘anti-bullfighting’ regions.
