We recommend the article "Spain gets into ring to protect bullfighting"  by Miles Johnson published in The Financial Times.

Some excerpts: 

Spain’s parliament is expected to declare bullfighting a protected national cultural pastime on Tuesday, stoking tensions with Catalonia where the sport is banned and raising questions about EU subsidies to the country’s struggling bull farmers.

The ruling centre right Popular party will urge lawmakers to back the measure, which could provide the legal basis to overrule existing bans on bullfighting in Catalonia and the Canary Islands.

(...) Currently Spanish farmers who use their land to cultivate fighting bulls receive EU subsidies under the Common Agricultural Policy, criticised by Catalan nationalist politicians as public funding of a sport they argue is cruel to animals.
