Party for the Animals at mass demonstration against bullfighting
On 10 September, Party for the Animals MEP Anja Hazekamp attended a mass demonstration against bullfighting and bull running in Madrid. On the Puerta del Sol, the central square in Madrid, Hazekamp addressed hundreds of thousands of activists: “Today we show the world that no animal deserves to die during cruel events for the purpose of entertainment. We will show everyone that we can celebrate without torturing animals. Together, we can and we will put a stop to this!”
The manifestation ‘Misión Abolición’ was organised by PACMA, the Spanish party for the animals. In addition to the Spanish and Dutch Party for the Animals, the Portuguese sister party Partido PAN was also present, represented by MEP André Silva.
The demonstrators want to put an end to all events involving bulls being chased, injured, burned alive or killed in a bullring.
