Help stop EU subsidies for the bullfighting industry

Bullfighting has been banned in the UK since 1835 and is illegal in many other European Union countries, such as Germany and the Netherlands. However, the European Commission is using our tax money to subsidise the breeding of bulls for bullfights.

It is estimated that bull breeders who provide bulls for bullfighting receive around 30 million Euros a year in subsidies through the EU. These subsidies are dispensed through the Common Agricultural Policy, to which the UK contributes billions of pounds each year.

I know you agree with us that bullfighting is an appallingly cruel and totally outdated ‘sport.’ Bullfighting is a dying industry, but these subsidies are helping to keep it alive. And it’s YOUR money that’s keeping it alive.

We need your help to send a strong message to European decision-makers that bullfighting has no place in a modern, civilised society. Please join campaigners across Europe and take action now. Email Dacian Cioloş, the European Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development, and tell him to stop the subsidies HERE.
