Animal Rights Activists Protest Bullfighting in Colombia
Some 180 half-naked people with banderillas attached to their backs put themselves "into the bull's hide" in the northwestern city of Medellin by positioning themselves to form the word �stop� to demand an end to bullfighting in Colombia.
"'Stop. That's enough of bullfights, of mistreating animals': That is our message for the world that looks down on us," Animanaturalis representative Edison Duque, the coordinator of the event in Medellin, told Efe.
The activists carried out their production on Saturday in the Parque de los Deseos, a venue provided to them by the Medellin Public Companies Foundation, a few hours before the start of one of the bullfights held within the framework of the city�s bull festival.
