Finally somebody in Spain has stepped up to the plate and decided to ban bullfighting.
Politicians in Catalonia outlawed bullfighting today.
It’s about time..and it seems that winning the 2010 World Cup knocked some sense into the Spanish and the region that includes Barcelona is taking the lead. Nice one Barthalowna people.
Bullfighters are not taking this news lying down..oh wait, lets ask one shall we.
That’s what i thought c**ksucker. Stay there and shut the hell up.
“Lawmakers in Catalonia outlawed bullfighting Wednesday, making this Spain’s first major region to do so after an impassioned debate that pitted the rights of animals against preserving a pillar of traditional culture.
Cheers broke out in the local 135-seat legislature after the Speaker announced the ban had passed 68 to 55 with nine abstentions. The ban in the northeastern coastal region whose capital is Barcelona will take effect in 2012.
Catalonia is a powerful, wealthy region with its own language and culture and a large degree of self-rule. Many in Spain have seen the pressure here for a bullfighting ban as a further bid by Catalonia to stand out from the rest of the country.” [more at CBC]
