Bullfighting is popular in Colombia. But not everybody likes it. Some people are against it. One woman is angry that bullfighting happens. She protests.

A man puts needles are put into her back. A small group of people come to her. They protest, too. They hold posters.

Two thousand five hundred needles are put in her back. This can be a new world record.

Difficult words: bullfighting (a situation when a man fights and kills a bull at a stadium), needle (a small sharp thing), poster (a big picture or sign).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
