To the president of Mexico Enrique Peña Nieto.
President, you can stop this.
For the sake of Mexico you need to stop
the "Torneo de Lazo" in Yucatan. To witness this level of violence
promotes more violence. Your country is already punished by an ever
increasing wave of violence. The people of Mexico are suffering this
violence every day. Tourism in Mexico is suffering the effects of this
violence by the decreasing numbers of tourist visiting Mexico because of
it. Torneo de Lazo only adds to a tarnished image that you as
president must improve. Besides repairing Mexico's image
this is the decent and humane thing to do. We expect you to do the
right thing. The murder and torture of innocent animals should not be
entertainment for your people. This is neither culture nor tradition,
this is public, shameful sadism.
The people who organize and participate in "Torneo de Lazo" must be sanctioned severely.
This spectacle is horrible and cruel.
Please stop it now.

People should sign because animal torture is wrong. Because inciting feelings of violence in the public is wrong. Because teaching that violence is fun is wrong.
