“Fiesta Brava” – Bullfights banned in Mexico’s largest bullring


Bullfights in Plaza México, the largest bullring in the world, have been banned until further notice following a lawsuit by animal rights activists. Both the plaintiffs and the operators of the arena were informed of the court’s ruling. According to the ruling, fighting in the Mexico City arena known as “Fiesta Brava” will be suspended pending a decision on its constitutionality.

“First Step of Justice for the Bulls!” wrote animal welfare organization AnimaNaturalis México on Twitter. It is now a matter of continuing to fight until a final ban on bullfighting is reached.

AnimaNaturalis, along with other organizations, had petitioned the court for a ban on the grounds that the capital’s constitution stipulates that animals must be protected and treated with dignity.

The company that runs Plaza México said it would use all legal remedies to defend “Mexican customs and customs.”

The Plaza México has more than 41,000 seats – the world-famous Las Ventas bullring in Madrid, on the other hand, can only accommodate almost 24,000 spectators. Opponents of bullfighting in Mexico denounce the suffering and killing of the animals.

Proponents say it’s an age-old tradition that creates tens of thousands of jobs in Mexico. Several bills banning bullfighting have been introduced in Mexico’s parliament in recent years, but no progress has been made so far.
