Mallorca Against Bullfighting calls for action

Natasha Retzmann, a driving force within MAB, said, “Among the protesters were people every age, also children, symbolising a generation full of hope and potential. Their presence was a powerful reminder of our responsibility to create a more humane and compassionate future. Together, we set a powerful example, showing that through unity and peaceful action, we can make significant strides toward ending cruelty and promoting kindness.  Bullfighting and animal suffering have no place in our world anymore. Our protest was a clear message that we strive for a society where empathy and respect for all living beings prevail.”
