The municipality of Sant Joan in the centre of Mallorca (Majorca) has become the Spanish island’s 16th to say NO to bullfighting.

A motion calling for bullfighting to be rejected was passed this week by the Sant Joan municipal council. It’s the latest success for the AnimaNaturalis and CAS International campaign ‘Mallorca Sense Sang’ (Mallorca without Blood) which aims to abolish bullfighting on the island.

The other Mallorcan municipalities to reject bullfighting are Muro, Consell, Esporles, Puigpunyent, Deia, Campanet, Manacor, Santa Margalida, Lloseta, Porreres, Algaida, Capdepera, Santa Maria del Cami, Sencelles and Arta.

Worldwide, 125 municipalities have declared themselves anti-bullfighting, including 100 in Spain.
