Below is a guest post by the animal and human rights activist and supporter of free software Luis Leonel.
The Spanish aristocrat, politician and headhunter, ESPERANZA AGUIRRE, was President of the Community of Madrid from 2003 to 2012 for the corrupt right-wing Partido Popular (People’s Party) and now is the president of that party in Madrid and spokesperson of the Municipal People Group in the City of Madrid. She was even Minister of Education and Culture.
The woman is also a great supporter of animal cruelty in Spain, particularly of bullfighting. As president of Madrid, Aguirre financed bullfighting with public money and declared it of “cultural interest” as an argument to raise subsidies with money from the regional coffers. Only for 2012 her administration budgeted EUR 2.2 millions for “bullfighting affairs.”
In 2013, Esperanza Aguirre wrote “Los Toros” (“The bulls”), a mediocre article in Spanish language in which she glorifies bullfighting and for which she was awarded a prize of EUR 5.000 euros. In that article she says “the bull is the most beautiful animal in the world”. That is why the bull should be tortured and slaughtered Esperanza?
Also, she became the first Spanish woman to date to have been awarded an Honorary Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in February 2004. She, as her admired David Cameron, enjoys the bloody sport of fox hunting.
The video below shows Esperanza Aguirre watching two Spanish teenagers training in the Escuela de Tauromaquia de Madrid, one of the tauromachy schools she subsided when she was President of the Community of Madrid and continues to support. “Madrid is and will remain the world capital of bullfighting,” Aguirre wrote.
And you, Esperanza, are and will remain an animal abuser.
