Ban Barbaric Bull Running Festival

Target: Mariano Rajoy, Prime Minister of Spain

Goal: Put an end to a festival which abuses bulls and puts human lives at risk.

The San Fermin Festival, also known as the “Running of the Bulls” is held over the course of a week in the northern Spanish town of Pamplona. The tortuous spectacle involves taunting and prodding a dozen bulls into a frenzy before setting them loose in the streets to chase down the up to 1,000 participants who try to keep one step ahead of the charging bulls.

The festival, which has just commenced, has already resulted in three men being gored. Given the festival’s bloody track record, it is likely that more will be injured in this unnecessary and barbaric display of cruelty. What is worse is that all bulls set loose each day will be killed as part of evening bullfighting events.

While some claim that because the festival is a long-standing tradition and must be upheld as a part of Spain’s cultural heritage, public outcry has grown in recent years both among Spanish citizens and those abroad. Sign this petition to lend your voice to those who are demanding that this bloodbath be put to an end.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Rajoy,

The annual San Fermin Festival has been celebrated as a part of Spanish culture and heritage, popularized worldwide thanks to the author Ernest Hemingway. While this so-called “Running of the Bulls” is a long-standing tradition, the outdated and barbaric torture involved as bulls are prodded and forced to run toward their inevitable doom has no place in the 21st century. The human suffering this has caused in terms of injury and death is also unnecessary and should not be encouraged.

Animal abuse must not be condoned as a form of entertainment. We, the undersigned, urge you to put an end to the violence and ban this horrific event once and for all.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
