Portuguese wine and olive oil company, Carmim, is being urged to stop advertising at cruel bullfighting events.

Several Carmim advertisement banners were on display during a recent bullfight in the bullring of Reguengos de Monsaraz.

In an email to the company, ICABS stated: “Your banners overlooked the area where bulls were repeatedly tormented and stabbed. The animals were seen gasping for breath and bleeding from open wounds.”

“A majority of people in Portugal and around Europe are opposed to bullfighting so we are surprised that your company would associate with such an activity,” we added. “We appeal to you to show compassion for the animals and end your support of bullfighting.”

Carmim produce several wines – including the Monsaraz, Reguengos and Terras d’el Rei varieties – as well as Monsaraz olive oils.

ACTION ALERT

Please join us in contacting Carmim and urging them to stop advertising at the bullring.
