    No to Bullfighting Talks

    The ESG wishes to add its voice to those opposing the talks on Bullfighting to be held soon at the Instituto de Cervantes. This sport, while heavily immersed in Spanish culture, should nevertheless have been banned as bloody, cruel and outdated. It is the view of the group that the Gibraltar Government should intervene and stop such talks from going ahead in the name of culture. This bloody sport continues to be practised widely in Spain today, in spite of growing national opposition to it. The ESG strongly believes that as a responsible member of the European Union, Gibraltar should prevent any soft promotion of this barbaric sport which could in any way encourage this activity further.
