BARCELONA- Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and the Dalai Lama have joined a campaign to outlaw bull-fighting in Catalonia, north-east Spain.

They were among a million signatures of an anti-bullfighting petition handed to the head of the Catalonian Parliament, Ernest Benach.

The people signing the huge petition are asking the regional legislature to modify the Animal Protection law and abolish bullfighting in Catalonia.

Some 250,000 signatures were collected in Catalonia over a six-month period, but a like number were collected from citizens elsewhere in Spain and from celebrities all over the world.
