San Fermin Festival – level 1
The San Fermin Festival takes place every year. One million people visit San Fermin, Spain. There are bull runs at the festival in the morning. There are bullfights in the evening.
The festival divides people. Some people like it. Other people say that it is cruel. These people protest against the festival. They cover themselves with fake blood. They have buckets that say, “Pamplona: Bloodbath for Bulls.”
An animal rights organisation organises the protest. The organisation wants to end the festival. In Spain, around 50 bulls die every year.
Difficult words: take place (happen), divide (make into two groups), bloodbath (when many people/animals are killed).
