Bullfight Foundation calls woman mayor of Gijón a Taliban after she bans bullfights for Racism and Misogyny


By José Manuel Sánchez from a post in Kaos de la Red Movimiento Antitaurino

Macho-fascist bullfighters gave the names ‘ Feminist ‘and’ Nigerian ‘ to their bulls before publicly torturing them to death to the cheers of their sadistic fans.

The socialist mayor of Gijón, Ana González, responded by announcing that there will be no more bullfights in the city.

The president of the Toro de Lidia Bullfighting foundation, Victorino Martín, then launched a tirade of abuse against the woman mayor, accusing her of being a Taliban and a “totalitarian” and making “a fool of herself.”

Ms Gonzalez announced the ban after denouncing that two of the animals that have been brutally tortured in public and killed in the last bullfighting fair were called ‘ Feminist ‘and’ Nigerian ‘.

The mayor said the City Council will not grant the concession to organize the Begoña Bullfighting Fair again, which was held on August 13, 14 and 15 in Gijón, since, in their opinion, “ the bullfighters have crossed several red lines ”.

“More and more voices in Gijón question the bullfighting celebrations, but what has definitely tipped the balance has been to see the names of the bulls that have been tortured this year as ‘Feminist’ and ‘Nigerian’.

Ana González said that her city believes in the equality of women and men, as well as in the integration of any person, no matter where they are born, and she cannot tolerate such names.

Bullfighters consider her a Taliban

In an open letter the bullfighters president, Victorino Martín, assures that he wants the mayor to know of his “deep concern for the totalitarian overtones that her words show, accusing her of treating the issue in a” frivolous “manner, assuring that she has” made a fool of herself “for” speaking without knowledge “because of” her ideological totalitarianism. “

For this reason, he compares the cancellation of the bullfights to prohibiting concerts as if someone were offended by “C. Tangana (..) singing his ‘Too Many Women’ ”.

…..”Both the Taliban and the mayor of Gijón forget that neither the Buddhas of Bamiyan nor the bulls are theirs, but that they are the common heritage of all humanity ”, he explains.
