In 2009, an arson attack in a bullfighting square in Spain left the whole building destroyed. 32 liters of gasoline where used for it. In an anonymous report, activists claimed to act against the abuse of animals in all forms, from entertainment to diet.
Read the report from BiteBack below: reported anonymously (translation):
“On Tuesday, September 15, 2009 Moscatel was chased and attacked by hundreds of people armed with spears. He was killed in a pool of blood in the fields of Tordesillas before the eyes of people incapable of feeling empathy for a dying animal, their shouts demanding death in the name of tradition and fun.
Hours earlier in Maranchón (Guadalajara), during the previous night, two activists entered another center of torture. We had brought spray paint and incendiary devices with a total of 32 liters of gasoline. After filling the bullring with graffiti, we lit the incense sticks that would be the fuse and we disappeared into the night.
We want to make clear our complete rejection of traditions based in domination, pain and sadism. But we also want to make it clear that bull-murder is not the only form of animal exploitation that we face. Millions of chickens, pigs, cows, fish, rabbits and sheep die every day on farms, in slaughterhouses and in laboratories. The only way to end this suffering is to adopt a lifestyle consistent with the rights of animals: veganism.
