Spain's Catalonia bans bullfighting.
The result of 68 in favour, 55 against the prohibition was expected, since the Catalonian parliament had cast preliminary votes in December accepting a citizens' petition to outlaw bullfighting on the grounds that it was cruelty to animals. There were nine abstentions.
In their debate, lawmakers cited the declining popularity of bullfighting in Spain, where fewer and fewer people go each year to the arena to watch toreros wield capes and swords against enraged animals.
"There are some traditions that can't remain frozen in time as society changes. We don't have to ban everything, but the most degrading things should be banned," said Jose Rull, member of parliament for the Catalonian nationalist party.
So, we have to keep publicising the plight of the galgos, and petitioning, and letter writing etc. so that one day action will be taken to change their lives for the better for ever.
