Bullfighting and Catalonia: recommended article from Colm Tóibín

After all the media attention that has been given to the recent decision by the Catalan Parliament to ban bullfights, we would like to bring to your attention an article by Irish author Colm Toíbín, published today in The Guardian ("Bullfighting ban is sweet revenge for Catalonia"). We feel that it provides a thorough and unbiased explanation of the affair, including the very different attitudes on this and other matters that can be observed in Catalonia and in Spain.

Després de tota l'atenció que els mitjans de comunicació han dedicat a la recent decisió del Parlament de Catalunya de prohibir les curses de braus, volem recomanar un article de l'escriptor irlandès Colm Toíbín publicat avui a The Guardian ("Bullfighting ban is sweet revenge for Catalonia"). Ens sembla que dóna una explicació completa i equilibrada de l'assumpte, incloses les actituds molt diferents que sobre aquesta qüestió i altres poden observar-se a Catalunya i a Espanya.
