The UN Committee is concerned about the impact that Bullring can have on children
The UN Committee on the rights of the child urged Spain to ban children from attending bullfights and bullfighting school. The organization believes that children need to be protected from the “harmful effects” of this practice.
The UN Committee is concerned about the impact that Bullring can have on children under the age of 18 years when they attend bullfights or learn bullfighting.
“In order to avoid the harmful effects of bullfighting on children, the Committee recommends that the state party prohibit the participation of children under the age of 18 years, the bullfights, and to forbid them to be spectators of bullfighting”, – stated in the concluding observations of the Committee.
The Committee reported that it is concerned about the level of violence in 55 schools of the bulls in Spain. The Committee also wondered, did the Spanish government the issue of prohibiting the involvement of children in these schools and in the vicinity of the fighting.
The Spanish delegation informed the experts that bullfighting is regulated separately by the governments of the Autonomous regions of Spain. Children over 14 years old can get hands-on lessons in schools of bullfighting. However, each school of bullfighting and the Autonomous government have their own rules governing the bullfight.
Earlier thousands of people took to the streets of Madrid, demanding an end to the traditional bullfights in the bullfight.
