Anti-bullfighting activists sentenced to 8 months
Five anti-bullfighting activists have been sentenced to up to eight months in prison for recent activity at the Feria de Nîmes on May 19.
The Nîmes Public Prosecutor’s Office in the Gard has demanded stiff prison sentences for the five activists.
The activists from the Gard, Pyrénées-Orientales, Hérault, Italy and Switzerland, aged 33 to 50, wounded six police officers during the violence which ensued on Saturday 19 May. Three men and two women were prosecuted for “damage to property and rebellion”, “violence on police” and "being in a crowd with weapons".
The prosecutor’s office also asked that these anti-bullfighting activists be banned from staying in the Gard. Other than for one of the protesters, a nurse residing in the Gard, the request was upheld.
