Seven years ago, citizens here voted against the bloodsport in a referendum called by president Rafael Correa. But this week, a substantial demonstration marched to the presdential palace to demand a return of what they called, their tradtitional culture.

He's a member of the National Animal Protection movement, and a long-time campaigner against bullfighting.
