Congratulations: Catalonia Stops Bullfights and Animal Cruelty

     |    Thursday, der 29. July 2010

News from the analog world:

The Barcelona regional parliament voted to end a form of mass entertainment based on torturing animals.

The referendum ended with 68 to 55 votes against bullfighting. Nine members of parliament abstained. A number of parties suspended party line expectations and allowed representatives vote as they saw fit. The animal protection group “Prou!” (”Enough is Enough!”) brought this issue to the fore. Last year “Prou” filed a petition and delivered more than 180,000 signatures in support of their goal.
