Over the last few weeks WSPA has lead two actions against bullfighting in both Mexico and Costa Rica.

Mexico City: An opportunity to change

On April 17th WSPA presented 23,000 signatures from supporters around the world to representatives of the Mexico City Congress, supporting a law amendment that would effectively ban bullfighting in the Mexican capital city.

“Banning bullfighting in Mexico City would be a major milestone in the fight to protect  the welfare of these animals around the world” – said Marcela Vargas, Programs Manager of WSPA Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.

Congresswoman Maricela Contreras said: “It is vital for us to receive these signatures, because they represent the voice of the society who has expressed its support to the bullfighting ban”. Contreras, along with her colleague Aleida Alaves has committed to doing everything within their power to ensure Congress votes in support of a ban on bullfighting

NO to “Pamplona” in Costa Rica!

Earlier this month, WSPA successful lobbying efforts lead to the Constitutional Court in Costa Rica rejecting plans to organise a Pamplona style bull run.

Marcela Vargas, Programs Manager of WSPA Mexico said: “In the running of the bulls event which takes place each year in Pamplona, Spain, bull are antagonised into racing through the streets, causing them to slip and suffer from severe injuries. This cruel practice puts the lives of bulls and people at risk, which is why we commend the Costa Rican government for refusing a similar event to take place”.

Thank you WSPA supporters!

This success could not have happened without you. We hope you continue to help us achieve our vision of a world where animal welfare matters and cruelty ends!
