INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

It is estimated that bull breeders who provide bulls for bullfighting receive around £37 million a year in subsidies through the EU's Common Agricultural Policy.

Britain is a major contributor to the Common Agricultural Policy and, as a result, British taxpayers are indirectly subsidizing bullfighting.

Bullfighting is a dying industry, but these subsidies are helping to keep it alive. And it's YOUR money that's keeping it alive.

Please join campaigners across Europe and take action now. Email Jonathan Scheele, Head of Representation for the European Commission in the UK, and urge him to take action against the subsidies.
