NEPAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE: REVIEW THE PLANNED BULLFIGHT EVENT

    1. Petition by

      VOICES FOR CHANGE

Bullfighting is not a sport. Bullfighting whether Man VS Bull or Bull VS Bull, is a human obsession to inflict pain and suffering on an animal. As well, bullfighting is a revenue raising practice for its organizers, any "bullfight aficionado" should think again and stop supporting this audacious practice by not attending Corridas (bull fight events).

PETITION UPDATE FEBRUARY 1:

On February 1 the message came from the bullfight opposition that the event has been postponed. This is due to pressure from all who campaigned so far, both in Nepal and through this world wide petition. VOICES FOR CHANGE notified NOC yesterday that if they go ahead, the world will know. We circulated that message via the campaigners in Nepal.

THIS PETITION REMAINS OPEN UNTIL FEBRUARY 2014, to serve its opposition to all bulfight events. We have updated the 2000 signatures needed to 4000. Please keep signing and sharing. Thanks so much to all supporters.

      Because it is just a violent thing. To some people it makes fun, but the animals are dead at the end.

      This is NOT a sport! It should have no place in any Olympic games.
