Free Tonight?

BullThe League Against Cruel Sports hosts the finale of their Balls to Bullfighting competition, which asked people across the world to design a T-shirt highlighting the cruel and barbaric nature of this "sport". Despite general indifference from the public (72% of Spaniards have no interest, according to a 2006 Gallup poll), bulls are still slaughtered in their thousands each year across the Iberian peninsula. The event begins 6.30pm at East Village, 89 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch (map). Entry is free, and most importantly, if you show up before 9pm there's free booze on offer. Saving the bulls never tasted so sweet.

too bad the moofs at the league against cruel sports can't do a thing about bullfighting. it's a multi-billion euro a year industry and growing by leaps and bounds. the obligatory poll quote about spanish indifference to the art of bull killing just reveals a dunderheaded lack of perspective and a misapprehension of what numbers mean in big countries. you could get a similiar response about baseball in the US.

activism + noise = hysterical impotence


The pointless torture of an animal for the asmusement of humans is utterly wrong. It's very sad that people still exist who condone it. The League aren't the only group trying to something about it - thankfully.
