PROTEST | Protest Against Bullfighting | Campo Pequeno | FREE
August 23, 2019 @ 20:30 - 22:00Free
“Bullfighting is the only art in which the artist is in danger of death and in which the degree of brilliance in the performance is left to the fighter’s honor.”
Do you, too, have a thing for animals?
Whether you’re a fan of Hemmingway or not, there’s a chance you think that the art of bullfighting is not art at all but, rather, plain old animal cruelty. And while you may not be able to save your first-floor neighbor’s depressed, backyard-imprisoned dog (you know what we’re talking about) — when it comes to bulls, you have a chance to make your voice heard this Friday.
Direct Action, the organizers, say this:
“The cruelty practiced against bulls and horses is not limited to the arena …
Violence is evident in all acts of aficionados. An example of this is what happened one year ago in Albufeira.
Another night of barbarism is scheduled in Campo Pequeno.
We will be there in another loud protest to show how much we are against the torture of the innocent!
Join us! August 23 at 20h, we await you!
Long Live the Bulls!
Death to Bullfighting!”
And death to Hemingway’s love of the sport too, dammit.
Go help fight the good fight.
Participation is free.
