Protest gegen EU Subventionen für Kampfstiere

Ohne Subventionen kann der Stierkampf nicht bestehen, diese Subventionen kommen nicht nur aus Spanien, sondern auch von der Europäischen Union. Sonderprämien für männliche Rinder, die eigentlich als Ausgleichzahlungen für den gesunken Marktpreis von Rindern gedacht waren, können auch von Kampfstierzüchtern beantragt werden. Laut einer dänischen Zeitung unterstützt die EU den Stiermord so mit 8,2 Millionen Euro jährlich.

Unser Partner im Kampf gegen die Tauromachie, die LEAGUE AGAINST CRUEL SPORTS, hat einen Protestbrief an Dacian Cioloş verfasst, er ist
in der Europäischen Kommission Barroso II Kommissar für Landwirtschaft und ländliche Entwicklung.

Bitte unterstützen auch Sie die Kampagne, kopieren sie folgenden Brief und schicken ihn unterzeichnet an Herrn Cioloş.

Dear Mr Cioloş

I am disgusted that European taxpayers’ money is being used to subsidise the breeding of bulls for bullfighting. Correspondence with the European Commission has confirmed that any farmer who exercises an agricultural activity, including bull-breeding, can apply for a single payment from the European Union through the Common Agricultural Policy. The eventual destination of the animal for bullfighting is not a condition for exclusion from that payment.

Bullfighting is illegal in Germany and in many other countries across Europe. So why is our tax money being diverted to support this horrific industry?

During a bullfight, the bull is attacked with lances and harpoons by men on foot and on horseback. The matador forces the confused and exhausted animal to make a few charges and eventually attempts to kill it with a sword. If not killed, the animal is stabbed repeatedly until paralysed. When the bull finally collapses, the spinal cord is cut, but the animal may still be conscious as his ears and tail are cut off and kept as a trophy. This horrific torture is performed entirely for the purposes of human entertainment in the name of ‘sport’ and this is completely unacceptable in a civilised society.

It is wholly unacceptable that our tax money is funding these horrific practices and I urge you to use your authority to end our association with this industry.

Yours sincerely,

….

Sehr geehrter Herr Cioloş

Es widert mich an, dass europäische Steuergelder dazu genutzt werden Stiere für Stierkämpfe zu züchten. Die europäische Komission hat bestätigt, dass Landwirte, einschließlich derer die in der Stierzucht aktiv sind, einen einmaligen Zuschuss aus der Gemeinsamen Agrarpolitik der Europäischen Union erhalten können. Es spielt dabei keine Rolle, ob die Tiere später für Stierkämpfe genutzt werden.

Stierkampf ist in Deutschland sowie vielen anderen europäischen Ländern verboten. Warum wird unser Steuergeld dazu genutzt diese entsetzliche Industrie zu unterstützen?

Während eines Kampfes greift der „matador“ die Stiere mit Lanzen an. Der Stierkämpfer zwingt das verwirrte und erschöpfte Tier zu mehreren Angriffen, bevor er dieses möglicherweise durch einen Degen tötet. Wenn der Matador den Stier nicht töten, sticht er solange auf das Tier ein bis es gelähmt ist. Wenn der Stier letztlich zusammenbricht wird ihm ein Schnitt ins Rückenmark gemacht. Das Tier ist möglicherweise noch bei Bewusstsein, wenn ihm die Ohren und der Schwanz als Trophäen abgeschnitten werden. Diese entsetzliche Folter dient nur dem Zweck der Unterhaltung und wird als Sport bezeichnet. Das ist jedoch unvereinbar in einer zivilisierten Gesellschaft.
Es ist unmöglich, dass unsere Steuergelder die Basis für solche entsetzlichen Machenschaften sind. Ich bitte Sie ihre politische Stellung dazu zu nutzen, damit diese Industrie nicht mehr von uns unterstütz wird.

Hochachtungsvoll

    Anachronistischer Stierkampf gehört endlich zur Gänze EU-weit verboten und vor allem keinesfalls als “Weltkulturerbe” geadelt!

    Stierkampf geht uns alle an, daher meine Bitte diesen Protest zu unterstützen und zu verbreiten. Ein herzliches Dankeschön im Namen der Stiere an alle die sich bis jetzt daran beteiligt haben!

    Es kann doch wohl nicht sein, dass unsere m,ühsam erarbeiteten Steuergelder verschwendet werden und dann auch noch dazu benutzt werden, Stiere aufs Übelste zu Tode zu Quälen! Was sind das für verantwortungslose Abgeordnete, die in der EU für solche Subventionen stimmen? Und Weltkulturerbe? Das ist doch wohl ein schlechter Scherz, dass Jemand auch nur einen Gedanken daran verschwendet, Tierleid als Kulturerbe zu erhalten! Unfassbar, mir fehlen die Worte, wie verroht die Menschen sind!
