Ferias of Nimes festivals in France are held twice a year and last for 5 days. They centre around bullfighting (the corrida) and are held in celebration of the bull and its fighting spirit.
Throughout the week are paties, and bullfighting. The corrida involves various stages of weakening, angering, injuring and finally killing the bull.
Even though animal cruelty is banned in France, bullfighting (and cockfighting) are exempt because they are viewed as "tradition".
Tell the people of Nimes ritual animal slaughter is still animal cruelty and has no place in 21st century traditions. End the corrida in the Ferias of Nimes festivals.
