Petitioning Members of the Balearic Islands.

End cruel bullfighting in the Balearic Islands!

Help ban bullfighting in the Balearics! Thousands of bulls are tormented and killed during bullfights in Spain. This bloodsport is gaining a strong and growing opposition from Spanish citizens, who think that public entertainment can never excuse cruelty to animals. Recently, more than 140,000 citizens added their voice to the Mallorca Without Blood campaign, led by AnimaNaturalis and CAS International, which aims to end bullfighting in the Spanish Balearic Islands. Members of the Balearic Islands will soon vote on the future of bullfighting in their region, where 31 towns have already expressed their opposition to this barbaric practice. Join us in ensuring that the Balearic Islands becomes the third Spanish Autonomous Community to ban cruelty to bulls by sending a letter to Spanish politicians!

Petitioning Premier Li Keqiang

Stop the trade in seal products in China!

This could be the end. The campaign to close the global markets for seal products has worked. Today, more than 35 nations have prohibited trade in some or all products of cruel commercial seal slaughters, and prices for seal fur in Canada have crashed. As a result, more than two million seals have been spared a horrible fate in recent years, and today, only a few hundred sealers continue to participate in the killing. But now, the Canadian government and sealing industry are vowing to develop new markets in Asia – they want China to become a dumping ground for products of cruelty that the rest of the world has rejected. Please join Chinese citizens in calling on their government to join the more than 35 nations that have stopped their trade in products of commercial seal hunts.
