Dear Mayor Cerezal,

I understand that bullfighting forms a part of your town's annual fiesta.

As one of the millions of people across Europe and the world opposed to this cruel and barbaric activity, I implore you to exclude bullfighting from the 2009 fiesta and from all future fiestas.

Manzanares el Real has many positive attractions for tourists but, as long as bullfighting is permitted to take place there, myself and my family will be avoiding your town in favour of the locations in Spain that have declared themselves anti-bullfighting.

I hope that Manzanares el Real will show compassion and choose to stop hosting bullfighting.

Thank you. I look forward to your positive response.

Yours sincerely,

Apreciado Alcalde Cerezal,

Entendemos que las corridas de toros forman parte de las fiestas anuales de su localidad. Como uno de los millones de ciudadanos europeos contrarios a esta actividad cruel y bárbara, le ruego que excluyan las corridas de toros de sus fiestas de 2009 y de las futuras.

Manzanares el Real goza de numerosas atracciones positivas para los turistas pero, mientras se permitan allí las corridas de toros, mi familia y yo evitaremos visitar su localidad en favor de aquellas que en España se han declarado contrarias a las corridas de toros.

Espero que Manzanares el Real muestre compasión y escoja poner fin a las corridas de toros.
