Since the King Juan Carlos himself a few days ago , at the bullring in Sevilla , gave his complete "apoyo" support for the bullfight I don´t think we´ll see them disappearing soon ! .
But , yes , people have the right to their opinions .. And Europeans are very demonstrative . Long live democracy !

Ive been to a few corridas with the king there, both in his official capacity, and as an aficionado sitting in the crowd.
I may try and pop over for Daniel Luques Encorrona next week

Apparently he has had 19 litres of plasma and 8 litres of blood . The Dr asked the public in the plaza for blood , he is stable at the moment.

Protesting/Demonstration is one of democracy's most valuable rights. Everyone deserves to be heard - or at least deserves to express oneself. I don't care how sensitive the topic. I'm going to protest against the use of plastic/petroleum products in packaging. Who's with me?! (yeah, I didn't think so).

The San Isidro bullfights are televised nightly on Canal+ but not on free/public TV this year (as far as I've seen).

Saludos, MadridMan
