About 300 animal rights activists were removed by Mexico City police when
they blocked ticket booths over the weekend at the Plaza Mexico in an effort
to prevent people from watching bullfights at the arena.
from several different animal rights groups gathered Sunday at the Plaza
Mexico and got into a shoving match with police, who pulled them away from
the ticket booths so fans could enter the facility, media reports said.
At least four protesters were arrested and the rest continued their
demonstration in the streets.
The Derechos sin Fronteras animal
rights group, which opposes bullfighting, asked supporters to gather at the
Plaza Mexico so they could form a human chain.
