EU funds are keeping the bullfighting industry alive. End EU subsidies to them.

Bullfighting – it’s cruel, and there’s nothing entertaining about watching an animal suffer. Still, each year, thousands of bulls are tormented and killed during bullfights in the Kingdom of Spain, and the Republics of France and Portugal. What's even more shocking is that public funds are currently used to help fuel the bullfighting industry.

Funds available through the EU's Common Agricultural Policy help subsidise this cruelty. While the EU cannot legislate to ban bullfighting, it can stop granting farming subsidies to bull breeders through its budget.

In just 5 days, the European Parliament votes on whether to cut these subsidies. Urge your MEP to support the amendment to stop EU funds being used to finance bullfighting activities!

Now is your chance to tell the European Parliament that you don’t want public funds being used to promote brutality against animals - that it’s time to cut off funding to the bullfighting industry right now.

Please act quickly to demand that no more EU funds be used to support bullfighting!

Thank you so much for all that you do for animals.
