Spanish bank asked to withdraw bullring adverts
29 June 2007

A Spanish bank has been asked to withdraw advertisement boards from a bullring in Portugal. The adverts for Caja Duero bank were seen this week at the Evora venue where bleeding bulls with banderillas hanging from their backs were photographed.

The Irish Council Against Blood Sports has today responded to an International Movement Against Bullfights action alert and urged the bank to disassociate from bullfighting.

Please join us in our appeal to Caja Duero bank.

Please urge Caja Duero to remove their signs from Evora bullring.

To whom it concerns:

I wish to complain about the presence of Caja Duero advertisement signs at Evora bullring this week. Portuguese bullfighting, as you may be aware, is a horrendous activity which leaves bulls bleeding and suffering from their injuries. Following the bullfight and away from the arena, the creatures are killed.

It is incredible that a modern bank would allow its name to be in any way associated with this internationally condemned activity.

I ask Caja Duero to remove the advertisement signs from this bullring (and any other bullfighting venues where they may be on display) and to fully disassociate from animal cruelty.

Thank you. I look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,
