Semi-Naked, "Blood-Soaked" Animal Rights Activists In Spain Protest Against Bullfighting [NSFW]

Submitted by: fancylad 3 months ago in News & Politics


From Ruptly TV: Activists from the animal rights group AnimaNaturalis staged a protest in Valencia on Sunday, stripping off and covering themselves in fake blood to decry the bullfighting tradition as this year's season kicks off. 

After stripping down to underwear, the largely female protesters doused themselves in the fake blood from buckets upon which was written "Valencia: bloodbath for bulls". Spokesperson for the group said was "a demonstration of all the blood that is spilled these days in the 'Fallas.' It is not necessary to spill blood to enjoy a party like ours here in Valencia."

SOT, spokesperson of AnimaNaturalis (Spanish): "Today's event has been a demonstration of all the blood that is spilled these days in the 'Fallas.' It is not necessary to spill blood to enjoy a party like ours here in Valencia."

SOT, spokesperson of AnimaNaturalis (Spanish): "Today we asked some activists to become semi-nude, and carry buckets of blood to represent all the blood that is going to be shed these days in the bullring, using the Fallas festivity as an excuse."

Deupokhari: Goats are ripped apart with teeth. Nobody cares
Nem Thuong: Pigs are quartered in a tug of war contest: Nobody cares
Eid al-Adha and Eid Qurbani: millions of camels, bulls and goats slaughtered in the middle of busy streets with rusty knives: Nobody cares.
Bullfights: Bull is executed in one sword move. Called "cruelty"

m3dm3d Um, bullshit? You obviously know not one fucking thing about it... look up the topic before saying such stupid things.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picador

As for the RELIGIOUS practices of Islam? You compare worship of God (Allah in this case) with A BLOOD SPORT for amusement? Really? *sigh*

Deupokhari: You compare ONE VILLIAGE and ONE GOAT in Nepal with TWO NATIONS (or more) who carry out tens of thousands of these every year? Who torture and kill bulls and horses for amusement. Really? *sigh*

5cats "You compare worship of God with A BLOOD SPORT for amusement". Slaughtering camels is not a worship of God. This is a cultural thing. There are 3.3 million muslims in the US. How many camels are slaughtered in the streets? None. There are 11.4 million Mexicans in the US. How many bullfights occur? None.

m3dm3d You are unaware of how often that happens in the USA? Muslims slaughtering animals on the streets? Do some research...

Bullfights are in MEXICO so please try to stay on topic, yes??
And how about cockfights? Dogfights? All sorts of other terrible things go on all over. Doesn't mean we should pretend bullfighting is anything different.

5cats I've lived in Europe and have been to bullfights, so I probably know more about it that what you can read on Wikipedia.

m3dm3d No one ever hurts the bull before the instant-kill "death blow" from the courageous Matador?? Oh please spare me that line of crap...

Wiki is a place to start. If you cannot even try to refute the facts? Why are you trying to discredit the source? Oh wait, because you have no facts on your side...

m3dm3d The torture beforehand is what? Inconsequential? Or are you denying Picadors exist? And all the rest of the things that go on in a typical bullfight? What are those things sticking out of the bulls?


You think the horse is having a good time? That they don't get gored and maimed as the crowd cheers and applauds?

I asked you a very simple question: "No one ever hurts the bull before the instant-kill "death blow" from the courageous Matador??"

And you don't want to answer even that? This is the real impediment to our conversation...

BTW I highly doubt every single bull is killed by a single stabbing of the heart, it often takes several. It takes several minutes for the bull to die like that anyhow, far from instant and painless. Facts which you have ignored.

5cats "I highly doubt every single bull is killed by a single stabbing of the heart" And you would be right. I don't know where your "corrida culture" comes from, but no corrida has ever ended with a stab to the heart. Ever. Probably because the bull skin is too thick...

m3dm3d So the bull gets hacked to pieces with multiple hits from a sword then? And you claim this is not an issue? Just what do they stab, after all those other woundings, to finally kill the blood-drained (while it is still alive) animal? If not its heart??

I honestly thought the "perfect ending" was to stab it in the heart and kill it with ONE thrust, but even that is too humane for the Spanish I guess... says you.

5cats please educate yourself. The sword goes in the head. One hit.

m3dm3d Right, because a bull's skull is much softer than it's sides :p

Whatever! Head, heart, that's immaterial. You continue to IGNORE the torture that goes on beforehand. That's fine, just ignore what you cannot refute, pretend it doesn't exist, it makes you look so smart!

Bullfighting is disgusting, it says a lot about the sick mentality of Spanish and Mexican people who support it.
It is not a sport, even less so than WWF. 

Why people pay to see such things is beyond my understanding, they should just go visit a slaughterhouse and watch the cows get killed, bled and cut to pieces. At least a slaughterhouse has the common decency to kill the animal quickly and painlessly first, unlike bullfighting which tortures it slowly...

holygod Yeah, bullfighting is pretty cruel. It's also not a 'fair' fight - the bull gets half-killed before the fight proper starts.

Interesting that they seem to have an actual bull in the protest, on the left at 1:05!

holygod It's repulsive and barbaric. I think they kill the bull even if it gores the bullfighter, right?

fancylad I think I read somewhere that in the rare circumstances where the bull wins they may allow it to survive for breeding purposes. However, if You have ever watched a bull fight, they don't just kill the bull, they repeatedly stab it with spears until it gets tired enough that the bullfighter can kill it with a sword.
