Ernest Hemingway thought it had mystical qualities, but if a series of new left-wing governments in a number of Spanish cities have their way, bullfighting in the country could soon become a thing of the past.
Fed up with corruption and austerity, voters in Spain backed new left-wing parties in May’s local elections, with control of cities such as Madrid, Valencia and Alicante all changing hands. The result has been not just a promise to clean up Spanish politics, but also the biggest-ever threat to bullfighting across Spain.
In Alicante at the weekend, a traditional August festival which for years has included a bull run through parts of the city, was replaced by a cycling race.
The town’s new government is debating whether it should hold a referendum to abolish the spectacle altogether. In nearby Valencia, the new mayor, Joan Ribó, has said that his administration will refuse to subsidise any events in which bulls are killed.
