We are joined by Joëlle Verdier, founder of CLAM and one of the 95 activists who occupied a bullfighting ring on October 8, 2011, in Rodilhan, France. The activists’ goal was to prevent apprentice Toreros from killing six calves by peacefully occupying the arena. As shown in the video below, the activists endured a violent beating from the crowd of spectators. Joëlle tells us about the bullfighting industry and reflects on the experience of using civil disobedience as a tactic to stop bullfighting in France.
