Protest against bullfighting - level 2

Protest against bullfighting - level 2

13-01-2015 15:00

Bullfighting is popular in Colombia, but not everyone there likes it. The local traditional bullfighting festivals angered one woman and she protested.

She sat outside the mayor’s office in a town, and a man put 2,500 needles into her back. A small group of activists joined the protest. They held posters. One of them read, “Bullfighter, if you are brave, dare to feel what the bull feels.”

The woman may also break the Guinness World Record for the most needles in her body.

Difficult words: angered (to be angry), brave (a brave person is not afraid), dare (to be brave enough).
