Yes, Ban Bullfighting

In the capitol of Mexico, Mexico City, hundreds of young people, activists, from the animal rights group, Animanaturalis, staged a graphic protest demonstration, soaking themselves in fake blood, wearing beige and black to mimic the skin of a bull, and with sticks affixed to their shoulders to look like bloodied darts, they lay with their eyes closed, role playing the part of dead bulls, to call attention to the cruelty of bullfighting, and to protest the horrible slaughter of bulls for sport? entertainment?

The protesters want lawmakers to stop the wicked torture of bulls, the inhumane practice of using the animals in games to amuse people. The young protesters are saying that bullfighting isn't a cultural issue but an animal rights concern. They are demanding the the banning of bullfighting.
