Children are bloodied in the ”cultural heritage” of public animal torture

Public Killing and Torturing bulls will be legalised again in Catalunya by order of the central government. This is the latest of a series of blatantly anti Catalan orders by the Spanish Constitutional and Supreme  Courts.

The Courts are politically controlled and have always supported dubious, self serving and even openly fascist proposals instigated by the far right 1% and the Catholic Church. The ban on bullfighting in Catalonia is seen as a traitorous way of asserting that ‘Catalonia is not Spain’.

Bullfighting is defined (by them) as “common cultural heritage” of Spain and can not be vetoed by a regional law, says the court, due to a clause in the Constitution which gives cultural heritage to the Central Government.

Bullfighting is the cultural heritage of the Conquest, in Spain it represents the exaltation of torture and legitimation of authoritarian male abuse and violence. Continue reading Spanish State forces Bullfighting on Catalans

The protest took place on Sunday, May 22nd on Sant Jaume plaza in Barcelona with the aim of educating the public about the benefits of a meat-free diet.

The giant meat packaging trays included the label with the words “carne humana” or human meat in Spanish. 

In March, Barcelona declared itself a veggie-friendly city: which includes the writing of a vegetarian guide to the city and encouraging residents to give up meat at least once a week.

Chickens have Rights to a Good Clucking Life

return me to my farmHere in our occupied center we have about 26 chickens, pretty fat and healthy, and they give us maybe 12 eggs a day, depending on the season. Sometimes they just go on strike.

They run free but are usually locked up at  night in case of wild animals getting in. The yard is too small so we feed them kitchen scraps, old recycled bread and market veg, they love it! Sometimes they get a little grain, you can still find GMO-free here in Spain. We all take care of them so sometimes they get fed twice! Continue reading Chickens have Rights to a Good Clucking Life
