A group of Yucatan citizens protested Monday Sept. 26 at the gates of Merida’s Plaza de Toros and presented a legislative bill to reform the state’s environmental law to prohibit bullfights in Yucatan.
The Secretary General of the Executive Committee of the Green Ecologist Party of Mexico (PVEM) in Yucatan, Harry Rodriguez Botello Fierro, said that this proposal seeks to raise awareness about the negative impact of tolerating this kind of show, and that it is necessary to avoid mistreatment of the bulls.
“As human beings we are obliged to defend the physical and psychological abuse which is carried out against this kind of species (the bulls). The importance of the bullfighting ban is focused on the method used to end the life of fighting bulls. The bulls do not exist because there are bullfights, rather the bullfights exist because the bulls exist,” said Botello Fierro.
Yucatan would be the third state in Mexico to ban bullfighting after Sonora and Coahuila.
He added that they are driving an initiative to reform and add the various provisions of the General Law of Ecological Balance and Environmental Protection, to ban bullfights.
“As part of this initiative, the various states where there are established committees of the Green Party made a peaceful and informative demonstration calling for a ban on bullfighting simultaneously,” Botello Fierro said.
The interviewee recalled that those states (Sonora and Coahuila) have managed to ban bullfighting, as well as in municipalities of Veracruz and Michoacan; while internationally Portugal, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, France and Spain are among the countries that have achieved some percentage of ban on these spectacles.
