Urge MEPs to vote to stop massive bullfighting subsidies

28 Oct

Every year, the EU shamefully hands over around 150 million Euros (£110 million) of taxpayers’ money to breeders of bullfighting bulls. The bulls are tortured and killed in the blood-soaked bullrings. It’s time for this to stop. This Wednesday, 28th October 2015, MEPs will have an opportunity to act.

Please join us in urging all MEPs to support EU Budget Amendment 22 (tabled by Indrek Tarand MEP, Greens/EFA) which demands an end to subsidies for cruel bullfighting.
