Since 2011, we have been collating documents in bullfighting countries on how the bullfighting industry indoctrinates young people. Within this framework, we have been able to create detailed records regarding accidents, fatalities and injuries to children at bullfighting schools and bullfighting events.
Today, we possess comprehensive documentation on the indoctrination methods of bullfighting schools and how they expose children to the most brutal violence and subject them to huge risks during training and at bullfighting events. At the same time, we have compiled studies showing that people who torture animals are more likely to be violent towards other people.
Since 2012, we have held consultative status at the UN. Through this, we have been able to push the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to demand that bullfighting countries refrain from exposing minors to the violence of the corrida, whether actively or passively. This kind of traumatisation and blunting of young minds clearly violates the UN 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child.
