The New Strategy to Create a New Generation of Bullfighting Fans:
Bullfighting at School
The bullfighting lobby, in their attempt to safeguard an activity that is everyday more rejected by
Spaniards have started to play their foul game: indoctrinate children at schools in bullfighting.
Children have a natural empathy towards animals, they are attracted by them and feel very
distressed when seeing them suffering. Teaching animal show to spear, stab and kill an animal for
mere entertainment is a denaturalization of this beneficial instinct and a threat to their moral and
emotional development, as many studies demonstrate (i.e. Dr. JP Richier, psychiatrist “Does
bullfighting represent a psychological danger for Young Spectators”).
What it is already taking place in this regard
BULLFIGHTING AT SCHOOLS
Different municipalities are taking children from school to bullfight arenas or fields where the bulls
are raised, where they are taught on the “art” “cultural” “tradition” of bullfights and where
toreros are presented to them as real heroes.
Only in the Autonomous Community of Madrid 13,000 students where taken to the Bullring of Las
Ventas, with public money. The opposition party PSM denounced that this was done with some
(350,000€) of the money supposedly allocated to create employment among the Youth.
Other activities done at school are drawing and writing contest around the subject of bullfighting,
awarding the winners with visits to bull raising farms or bullfights.
Students are also given free tickets, financed with public money or important discounts to attend
bullfighting.
In other occasions schoolchildren are taken to see bullfighters practice and “try” bulls to see which
one is more apt to be in a bullfight.
WEBSITE BULLFIGHTING FOR CHILDREN
One of the most important initiatives developed by the bullfighting lobby is the creation of the
website: http://www.torosparaniños.es There, it may be appreciated how much investment (both public
and private) is being put to lead children into bullfighting.

BULLFIGHTING SCHOOLS
More and more public and private funds are being put in giving children scholarships to attend
bullfighting schools. In these schools not only they practice with live calves but they also get often
seriously injured.
The New Strategy to Create a New Generation of Bullfighting Fans: The Bullfighting Foul Game
BULLFIGHTING ON PUBLIC TV FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES
A key pillar of the Strategy to lead children into Bullfighting is the return of bullfighting to public
television during children audience time. This had been banned before but the current
government has brought it back. Having kids witnessing bullfighting, means that not only they will
be able to see and accept as normal the torture and killing of the bull, along with the accidents
with the horses:
But that they can also witness, at any moment terrible human injuries including the death of the
bullfighters. It is paradoxical that this same tv would protect children from viewing fake violence at
films.
This return of bullfighting to public TV has generated the largest number of complaints sent from
the public to the “TV audience ombudsman” ever, but they have been ignored.

Bullfighter Padilla losing an eye. He is show in
the pictures above among children, with a
patch in his eye, portrayed as a hero to them.
OTHER SPECTACLES INVOLVING BULLFIGHTING CHILDREN MAY ATTEND TO
Bullfights are just part of the spectacle involving bulls that children may witness in Spain.
Unfortunately there are many others which are just as bloody or even more.
Toro de la Vega, Tordesillas, where the bull is killed with spears by hundreds of men on horses and
at foot.
Depending on the Autonomous Community of Spain, children are or are not allowed in
bullfight arenas. In Madrid, for example, children of any age may attend and witness
these images.
Toro de Jubilo
Capeas, amateur bullfights made in family or friends parties on little calves and where children are
invited to participate.

Becerradas, bullfights made by amateurs on little calves. This can also be witnessed by children
who often are invited to cut the calf ear as an award.
Running of bulls, running, on a horse, or even on tractors.

Toro Ensogat: People hold the bulls with strings
AL AÏGUA Bulls are chased to the water
And many more.
What would take place if the Law proposed by the Popular Legislative Initiative passed.
This law previews reinforcement through subsidies to bullfighting to:
- General promotion: advertising, expositions, art related to bullfighting etc.
- Programs at schools: as a curricular activity in all schools.
Also it aims at cancelling all regionals laws that prohibit children to attend any kind of bullfighting.
Bullfighting is an atrocity which denaturalizes children natural empathy towards animals and
makes them lose their compassion to other beings. This cannot contribute to a less violent
society but all the contrary, to harden Spanish children hearts before the suffering of others,
with the only excuse of amusement.
The bullfighting lobby is making a great effort to export this activity, starting this year to be
running of bulls for the first time in Virginia, the USA.
It is the responsibility of any good citizen to try to stop this and aim, instead to a more empathic,
more compassionate world towards all sentient beings.
From the platform La Tortura No Es Cultura, we know of the importance of raising awareness
among Spanish families on the harmful effects of this New Strategy to Create a New Generation
of Bullfighting Fans.
The bullfighting lobby counts on great amounts of funds, both public and private. We don’t. But
we know that we count on the support of millions of citizens around the world who do not want
this to continue. We ask this citizens to contribute with anything they can for us to set the
necessary campaigns to stop this madness.
We are more, and together, we can make a difference.

The New Strategy to Create a New Generation of Bullfighting Fans: The Bullfighting Foul Game

  • 1. The New Strategy to Create a New Generation of Bullfighting Fans: Bullfighting at School The bullfighting lobby, in their attempt to safeguard an activity that is everyday more rejected by Spaniards have started to play their foul game: indoctrinate children at schools in bullfighting. Children have a natural empathy towards animals, they are attracted by them and feel very distressed when seeing them suffering. Teaching animal show to spear, stab and kill an animal for mere entertainment is a denaturalization of this beneficial instinct and a threat to their moral and emotional development, as many studies demonstrate (i.e. Dr. JP Richier, psychiatrist “Does bullfighting represent a psychological danger for Young Spectators”). What it is already taking place in this regard BULLFIGHTING AT SCHOOLS Different municipalities are taking children from school to bullfight arenas or fields where the bulls are raised, where they are taught on the “art” “cultural” “tradition” of bullfights and where toreros are presented to them as real heroes.
  • 2. Only in the Autonomous Community of Madrid 13,000 students where taken to the Bullring of Las Ventas, with public money. The opposition party PSM denounced that this was done with some (350,000€) of the money supposedly allocated to create employment among the Youth.
  • 3. Other activities done at school are drawing and writing contest around the subject of bullfighting, awarding the winners with visits to bull raising farms or bullfights. Students are also given free tickets, financed with public money or important discounts to attend bullfighting. In other occasions schoolchildren are taken to see bullfighters practice and “try” bulls to see which one is more apt to be in a bullfight. WEBSITE BULLFIGHTING FOR CHILDREN One of the most important initiatives developed by the bullfighting lobby is the creation of the website: http://www.torosparaniños.es There, it may be appreciated how much investment (both public and private) is being put to lead children into bullfighting.
  • 5. BULLFIGHTING SCHOOLS More and more public and private funds are being put in giving children scholarships to attend bullfighting schools. In these schools not only they practice with live calves but they also get often seriously injured.
  • 7. BULLFIGHTING ON PUBLIC TV FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES A key pillar of the Strategy to lead children into Bullfighting is the return of bullfighting to public television during children audience time. This had been banned before but the current government has brought it back. Having kids witnessing bullfighting, means that not only they will be able to see and accept as normal the torture and killing of the bull, along with the accidents with the horses:
  • 8. But that they can also witness, at any moment terrible human injuries including the death of the bullfighters. It is paradoxical that this same tv would protect children from viewing fake violence at films. This return of bullfighting to public TV has generated the largest number of complaints sent from the public to the “TV audience ombudsman” ever, but they have been ignored. Bullfighter Fernando Cruz at Plaza de Toros de Las Ventas Bullfighter Padilla losing an eye. He is show in the pictures above among children, with a patch in his eye, portrayed as a hero to them.
  • 9. OTHER SPECTACLES INVOLVING BULLFIGHTING CHILDREN MAY ATTEND TO Bullfights are just part of the spectacle involving bulls that children may witness in Spain. Unfortunately there are many others which are just as bloody or even more. Toro de la Vega, Tordesillas, where the bull is killed with spears by hundreds of men on horses and at foot. Depending on the Autonomous Community of Spain, children are or are not allowed in bullfight arenas. In Madrid, for example, children of any age may attend and witness these images.
  • 10. Toro de Jubilo Capeas, amateur bullfights made in family or friends parties on little calves and where children are invited to participate.
  • 13. Becerradas, bullfights made by amateurs on little calves. This can also be witnessed by children who often are invited to cut the calf ear as an award.
  • 14. Running of bulls, running, on a horse, or even on tractors. Young girl holding the bulls’ ears after the becerrada
  • 15. Toro Ensogat: People hold the bulls with strings
  • 16. AL AÏGUA Bulls are chased to the water And many more. What would take place if the Law proposed by the Popular Legislative Initiative passed. This law previews reinforcement through subsidies to bullfighting to: - General promotion: advertising, expositions, art related to bullfighting etc. - Programs at schools: as a curricular activity in all schools. Also it aims at cancelling all regionals laws that prohibit children to attend any kind of bullfighting. Bullfighting is an atrocity which denaturalizes children natural empathy towards animals and makes them lose their compassion to other beings. This cannot contribute to a less violent society but all the contrary, to harden Spanish children hearts before the suffering of others, with the only excuse of amusement. The bullfighting lobby is making a great effort to export this activity, starting this year to be running of bulls for the first time in Virginia, the USA. It is the responsibility of any good citizen to try to stop this and aim, instead to a more empathic, more compassionate world towards all sentient beings. From the platform La Tortura No Es Cultura, we know of the importance of raising awareness among Spanish families on the harmful effects of this New Strategy to Create a New Generation of Bullfighting Fans.
  • 17. The bullfighting lobby counts on great amounts of funds, both public and private. We don’t. But we know that we count on the support of millions of citizens around the world who do not want this to continue. We ask this citizens to contribute with anything they can for us to set the necessary campaigns to stop this madness. We are more, and together, we can make a difference.
