Plea to Peru

As the world changes and progresses in a thousand positive ways, the torture of bulls continues in Peru. It is termed bullfighting even though no fight is possible: the bull has no defense against a large parade of miserably gleeful 'bullfighters', their superiority complex so full of airs and graces, yet unable to face the bull without a slew of weaponry and support. Bull torture has no forgiveness. Diabolically contrived, the 'bullfight' is a Peruvian tradition, as was black slavery. It is an old imperial formula that still exists only in pursuit of the stupidity of money. No matter how much blood and death there is in the bullring ... there can never be enough.
After the pathetic spectacle, the articulate animal is split open from neck to belly and emptied out. In 2015!? In civil Peru!? Such an ancient ache shreds Peruvian society, and drops any civilization low on the totem pole.
Duty to the human soul demands the abolition of this savagery. Please blast Pedro Cateriano with a call for change, with social justice for animals at any cost.
The world has moved on, and Peru must also. Otherwise, what is the point of anything? Must savagery always have the final word? Bulls have no rights simply because they cannot speak Spanish?
Why don't the bullfighters simply fight one another ... to the death?

Photograph below shows Peruvian bull-torturer Andres Roca Rey engaging in bloodlust. Oh, Andres, just LOOK at yourself ... is this all that your life is for? Is this all that your heart and soul are worth?
