SPAIN’S animal-rights political party has called its annual protest against bullfighting for Saturday,  April 6 in southern Spain – ahead of the country’s general election.

PACMA is the only party running in the 2019 elections on a platform that calls for the complete abolition of bullfighting in Spain.

The Partido Animalista Contra el Maltrato Animal has announced the annual anti-bullfighting protest will kick off at 5 pm at the Palacio de San Telmo in Sevilla, the capital of Andalucia.


The political group’s President Silvia Barquero will address the crowd.

The party has issued a 10-point election manifesto that also calls for the prohibition of hunting, the prohibition of the use of animals in circus acts, zoos and oceanariums, and other measures designed to ensure the safety and well-being of animals and pets.

PACMA say they want people to take to the streets en masse to say loud and clear that they do not want their city to continue being known as the cradle of animal abuse

The group say: “Sevilla is history, heritage, light, joy … and the time has come for the city,  which has advanced in many other areas, to demonstrate compassion and animal respect.”
