Peter Gabriel (of Genesis) has signed the CRAC Europe anti-bullfight manifesto.

On April 17, on the France 3 channel, Fadjen, the little black bull saved by Christophe Thomas from the bullring, and the group CRAC Europe, will appear on the programme 30 millions d’amis (30 million friends).

A billboard campaign is being prepared for 2011, with some towns already booked. 

 Jean-Pierre Garrigues and Michèle Breut, Vice-presidents of CRAC Europe.
