In November 2022, PACMA presents its report “Lack of protection of children against the violence of bullfighting in Spain' before the Committee on Children's Rights of the United Nations Organization (UN) in which it denounces Spain because it considers that the Government does not protect children against bullfighting.[18] Following this report, the UN requests the Spanish State to provide "information on the measures adopted to outlaw the participation of children under 18 years of age as bullfighters and as spectators", not only in bullfights, but in any type of bullfighting event.[19]

In August 2023, PACMA gets the Supreme Court to grant it free justice to appeal against hunting with dogs in Extremadura.[20]In September 2023, PACMA and the organisation FAADA appeal to the "Defensor del Pueblo Andaluz" to act in response to the Silence procedure of the Junta de Andalucía due to the letter sent by both entities to address alternatives ethics of population control of invasive exotic fauna in the region.[21]
