Urgent: Ask MEPs to help end €129 million bullfighting subsidy

21 Oct

All Europeans are being urged to unite to banish bull fighting and its related forms of killing and torturing for fun. On Wednesday October 22nd the European Parliament will discuss its outrageous annual bullfighting industry subsidy of 129 million euros. The suffering bulls and horses used in such performances need your help.

Please join us in urging the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to act to stop the subsidies.

Sample Letter

Dear MEP,

I am one of the majority of EU citizens opposed to the cruel and barbaric practice of bullfighting. I find it entirely unacceptable that an estimated 129 million euros of EU funds are being given to those who breed bulls for this disgusting spectacle.

Act to stop this subsidization of animal cruelty. On Wednesday 22nd October, please vote in favour or MEP Bas Eickhout’s Amendment 6334.

Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely
