This time I’ve been quick in order to arrive in time for the “txupinazo” of San Fermin. The things is that the topic I’ve chosen has a lot to do with this festival and with… well… “La Fiesta”. Every year, Pamplona (like many other towns and villages) is involved in controversy due its main activity.
Luckily, every year’s protests have begun to leave a mark, and voices that not long ago claimed San Fermin not to have sense without bullfight, are starting to soften, and now we can hear options that don’t imply any bull’s torture or death.
Like in Pamplona, in many other places steps towards most civilized celebrations are being taken. Unfortunately, not in all the cases is this goal being reached trough the way of the reason, but but the exercise of the law.
Until not very long ago, this scene seemed quite imposible, and many bands and soloists have expressed in their lyrics the incredulity and anger that bullfighting produced on them. The repertoire could be very long, but I’ve selected six. Some of them, because they’re the ones I like most. And also a pair of song that have surprised me, and they may surprise you too.
