The Logic of Bullfighting is Based on the Same of a Man Who Kicks His Wife to Death

From BarcelonaReporter.com

The MEP [Member of the European Parliament] has said the debate on bullfights is similar to what occurred in similar terms in England with fox hunting or in Italy with the tradition of throwing an animal from the belfry. "The minds of men evolve. We're talking about an issue that has to do with values and culture, but not with freedom," pointed out the MEP, not avoiding controversy.

Frassoni, president of the European Green Party, has appeared before the commission of the Environment of the Catalan Parliament to debate the future of bullfights and bull runs, after, last December’s popular legislative initiative (PFI).

One MEP said that the "logic of bullfighting is based on the same of a man who kicks his wife to death".

Monica Frassoni from the group ‘MEP’ European Greens said that the "useless" suffering of bulls in bullfights is based on the same logic used by the man who kills his wife with kicks or people that discriminate against people by the colour of their skin".

Frassoni, president of the European Green Party, has appeared before the commission of the Environment of the Catalan Parliament to debate the future of bullfights and bull runs, after, last December’s Popular Legislative Initiative (PFI). Calling for the banning of bullfighting in the community.

For the representative of the European Parliament, the bullfight is the expression of some macho values and the lack of equality and an "imposition" between man and nature which he wants to dominate, in this case the bull, "a diversion that has no place in this society".
