With slogans of “torture is not culture”, a group of between 15 and 20 anti-bullfighting activists protested outside the Plaza de Toros Mérida during the afternoon of this Sunday, January 28th: due to the bullfight that took place in the local bullring.

As is customary, on the afternoons of celebration at the Plaza de Toros, animal rights defenders gathered with banners and a megaphone to ask for this practice to end. In addition to asking fans to stop attending.

This January 28, the so-called White Bullfight was held, for the 95th anniversary of the “Mérida”, where the Mexican bullfighters Juan Pablo Sánchez and Arturo Saldívar, the Spanish Román and the Venezuelan Jesús Enrique Colombo, left the square, before three quarters of entry.

The protests outside the Merida Arena took place an hour before the start of the celebration; The protesters left shortly after the parade: they were located in front of the building, in a peaceful demonstration.

Yucatán is one of the states that hosts the most bullfighting celebrations; whether in first, second, traditional, posh or charlotada places it occurs in the country. Virtually all towns have bullfights during their patron saint festivities.

Likewise, this Sunday the Plaza de Toros México, the largest bullring in the world, was reopened, which was kept closed due to a court order and which received celebrations for a new legal authorization.
