Petition to EU Commission against Bullfighting and Blood Fiestas Subsidies

April 28, 2015
Bullfighting

Every year the European Union provides a large subsidy of over £110 million via the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) to farmers who breed bulls for bullfights and other blood fiestas.

British taxpayers help fund bullfighting in Spain with over £13.5 million a year.1

This support towards bullfighting conflicts with Article 132 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union, which states: ‘That the Union […] and the Member States shall, since animals are sentient beings, pay full regard to the welfare requirements of animals.’

Bullfighting constitutes cruelty to animals, and without the backing of the European Commission and Spanish Administrations funds, the industry would be on the verge of collapse.

Sign the petition today demanding the EU to prohibit European subsidies being used to support bullfighting!
