Success: Bull Stabbing Festival Banned

Target: Alicia Garcia Rodriguez, Counselor of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism for Castile and Leon

Goal: Thank the government for banning the barbaric bull stabbing festival.

Every fall, the Toro de la Vega festival is celebrated in Tordesillas, Spain. During this festival, a lone bull is chased, tortured, stabbed, beaten and eventually killed by a group of men on foot and on horseback. The men are equipped with weapons including darts and spears.

Thankfully due to protesters and petitions like the one at ForceChange, this barbaric festival is now a thing of the past. Festivals like this one are common throughout Spain, however the tide is turning and more and more of these events and festivals are being banned.

Sign this petition and thank the government for putting an end to this awful festival.


Dear Ms. Rodriguez,

For years, the Toro de la Vega festival has been celebrated in Tordesillas, Spain. This festival was celebrated by men on foot and horseback chasing, beating, torturing, stabbing and eventually killing a lone, scared bull. The event was absolutely barbaric and showed some of the worst sides of humankind.

Thankfully, the event is now banned. It is great to see inspiring changes happening throughout the world. Thank you for banning this festival and saving countless bulls from unnecessary pain and agony.
