Error 155: DEMOCRACY not found.
Update from March 24th, 2018: more politicians have been put in prison without trial. Also, some others are on exile to avoid prison. It is unclear where this situation will lead, but the events of these past months have taken Spain back to Franco's times.
On October 16th 2017 a Spanish judge sent to prison (before trial) two political activists who were working for the independence of Catalunya. On November 2nd, the same judge sent to prison (before trial) eight members of the Catalan government who had been democratically elected by the citizens of Catalunya. The same judge is also ordering the arrest of the remaining members of the government, who are now in exile in Brussels. On November 9th, another judge sent to prison the President of the Catalan Parliament, Ms. Carme Forcadell. She was set free the day after, not before paying a 150,000 € bail.
Some weeks later, six of the imprisoned members were released under bail. As of December 19th 2017, the vice-president (Mr. Junqueras) and the minister of internal affairs (Mr. Forn) of the Republic remain in prison, as well as Mr. Cuixart and Mr. Sanchez, the two political activists who have a long track record of pacifism.
In response to these attacks, I have decided to disable this website until all the political prisoners and the members of the Catalan government are released from Spanish prison without charges.
