CAS International (Comité Anti Stierenvechten) is the biggest organization in the world which works exclusively on the abolition of bullfighting and cruel fiestas (festivals) during which bulls and other animals are tortured. Together with our colleague organizations, we want to end this animal abuse as soon as possible.
More information about CAS International.
Bullfighting is one of the most cruel forms of animal abuse. Every year, more than 250,000 bulls and cows are tortured and killed worldwide during bullfights and similar events.
Also during fiestas ('village festivals'), tens of thousands of bulls and other animals are severely maltreated.

The council of A Coruña spends more than € 500,000,- in the organization of bullfights since 2009
A Coruña (Spain) subsidizes festivities with bullfights in a building owned by the local authority of A Coruña. These festivities have resulted in a fiasco in econonic terms as well as in its attendance. It is estimated that the bullfights organized in 2012 have led to economic losses of € 135,000 in just three days.
Sign the initiative!
The political party PP, that has the majority in the city council since 2011, imposes a veto to our initiatives, supported by the pro-bullfighting lobby, to stop us talking about bullfighting and its subsidies in spite of the fact that more than 73% of the inhabitants of A Coruña is opposed to bullfighting.
The city council of A Coruña intends to continue relegating public funding to the torture of animals while at the same time financial support of NGO’s is being cut down, sanitary and social services are being canceled and thousands of A Coruña families who suffer under the economic crisis are being excluded of any support.
For these reasons we have decided to present a popular motion against bullfighting, that you can sign here.
