And the appeals of the Junta de Andalucía to a state regulation that obliges to respect the meter and a half among the spectators sound like a waste. Not. The Andalusian Government was scared by the photos of the bullfight held on August 6, 2020 in El Puerto, in which it seemed that the businessman had not met the maximum allowed capacity of 50%. The facts s...
