The bullfighting

While in Spain it is always claimed that bullfighting is an form of culture and art, I am sure most sane people would dare to argue otherwise and see it as totally unneeded cruelty against animals. Is there light at the end of this long tunnel? Maybe. Spanish region Catalonia voted with a small majority to pick up a citizens initiative to create a law that would forbid bullfighting. Mind you, 180.000 signatures were collected! So no law, but a process started to make a law. In 1991 bullfighting was already banned on the Canary Islands, another Spanish region.

ps: added a new category: Good news.
