Stop Bullfighting Sign at Plaza de Toros La Monumental, Barcelona, Spain

Stop Bullfighting Sign at Plaza de Toros La Monumental, Barcelona, Spain  [enlarge]

This is a detail of the box office window at La Monumental bullring in Barcelona, a place that is becoming rather obsolete these days in this part of the peninsula. The slogan is a whole declaration of principles: Neither Art Nor Culture, This is Torture, a polemic topic that as usual has defenders and detractors. I don't have nothing against traditions but all living things are to be respected and we don't have the right to kill them just for fun. It is too high a price to pay.

  1. I remember getting tours from Catalans. They made it a point to tell me that bullfighting is not popular in Barcelona and to see it, I would need to go to the south of Spain.

  2. well, here in catalonia we don't like bullfighting so it's usual to find actions like this. I don't know.. my mother use to say that in the slaughterhouse there's no a better way of dying for the bulls. If that was right, a conclusion might be that ours is a naive and hypocrite puritan attitude.

  3. Estoy de acuerdo, realmente matar a un animal de a poco es muy cruel y creo que no deberia permitirse.

    Thank you for giving it a voice, that humans should be called intelligent, because they do have fingers.

    A wonderful Wednesday for you.

  6. I have never been to a bullfight, but have been to cockfights (which are now illegal) and it's terrible to see the animals fight to death. I guess I would feel the same way about bullfights.
