Barcelona to debate bullfighting ban



Just thought I'd share some good news.



Did a quick search and didn't see this posted anywhere else, sorry if it's a repeat.

I hope it gets banned. I've never understood bullfighting. I've seen videos of it in the past and it's just barbaric and cruel.

It´s still a long way to go before it gets banned. So far, they got the go-ahead to debate the possible ban in Parliament but the battle is far from being won.

Besides, the bullfighting partisans, powerful lobbyists, business people have the support of most of the Media, which slants all the information to their probull interests.

Furthermore, the entrepreneurs are striving to "export" bullfighting beyond its present borders, and they have staged some shows in Las Vegas, in China etc with a view to polularize this shameful , despicable practice
