11 June 2022 will mark the first Day Against Bullfighting

11 June 2022 will mark the first Day Against Bullfighting

Mis à jour le 31 August 2022

The weekend of 11 and 12 June will be celebrated with the first Day Against Bullfighting in thirty towns in France. One Voice — a member of the Féderation des Luttes pour L’Abolition des Corridas (FLAC) [Federation of Fights to Abolish Bullfighting] — and the Alliance Ethique are at the initiative of this previously unseen rallying, which will result in physical events such as rallies with signs, banners, and information stands; but also with online action, taking the form of a ‘tweetstorm’ of portraits bearing the image of dozens of partner associations using our communal hashtag: #StopCorrida, to shout out to our representatives and to abolish bullfighting [also known as Corrida].

See the Facebook page on the Day Against Bullfighting.
See the Facebook page for One Voice’s national actions.

Thirty-three towns in France and worldwide, dozens of partner associations and hundreds of citizens and leading figures condemning bullfighting alongside us.

In nineteen towns, within the framework of a coordinated national action, the One Voice branches will organise audience participation events within the public awareness programme. In Nice, Henry-Jean Servat will be there and we will be implementing a static audience participation event in a circle, as though it is an arena, with videos being broadcast on a large screen. In Paris, Jeanne Mas has been invited. In Captieux, a demonstration will take place in the context of a bullfight.

And in thirteen other towns, our partners from Collectif Nature et Sauvage [Nature and Wildlife Collective], CRAC Europe [Radical Anti-Corrida Committee], 269 Life, Colbac, or even from the Collectif Animaliste Sainté [Holy Animalist Collective], and other private individuals will take over the rallying. Finally, the Aichi Prefecture will also get involved and their virtual action will also be supported just about everywhere in Japan.

Dramatisation is expected, but photo albums will be created with the public in particular, supporting the initiative, which will add to the existing album.

2022 objective: 5000 portraits. Numerous leading figures have already given their support with images for the abolition of bullfighting.

To show your support online:

Choose the #StopCorrida visual in the list of participating associations, available here, print them in A4, take a photo of yourself, your family, your friends, and send your support to the following address: stopponslacorrida@gmail.com.

Shout out representatives on social networks:

If you would also like to take part in the first Day Against Bullfighting but you are not able to travel, here are the posts that you can use (and adapt) at your leisure on your social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and others) throughout the weekend of 11 and 12 June.

One Voice’s campaign against bullfighting:

One Voice carried out an investigation in 2019 in a bullfighting school in Nîmes. On this occasion, a petition was published in order to get these schools, where children learnt how to make sentient animals suffer and how to kill young bulls, closed down.

"L'ignorance est la mère des traditions" disait Montesquieu... Effectivement, seuls de fieffés ignorants peuvent "penser" que tuer est un sport ou un divertissement !
