PROTEST | Protest Against Bullfighting | Campo Pequeno | FREE
April 12, 2019 @ 20:00 - 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.”
Ernest was a great writer, in our humble opinion. He was obviously also a fan of bullfighting.
And then he shot himself.
We’ll never know…
Whether you’re a fan of Hemmingway or not (and whether you’re vegan or not), there’s a good chance you think that the art of bullfighting is not art at all but, rather, plain old animal cruelty.
If this is the case, you have a chance to make your voice heard this Friday.
Here’s what Direct Action, the organizers of Protesto Contra a Tauromaquia, tell us:
“After a day of bullfighting, torture nights begin again in the Praça do Campo Pequeno, this being the inauguration of the bullfighting season.
Exploitation, humiliation, torture … all with the support of a state that feeds this shame with support and subsidies!
As long as they torture animals on this site, we will be there, and we are counting on you to be many!
Please join us, share the event, and invite your friends.
Go help fight the good fight.
Participation is free.
