On Monday, nine Catalan pro-independence leaders were sentenced to between nine and 13 years in prison for their role in Catalonia’s 2017 independence bid and unauthorised referendum.

    Do not believe this pantomime theater: Catalonia is not this. It was always a Spanish region, and the rest of Spain loves and supports it. Read real History of Spain (not the 2 minute´video propaganda ones, where the information is being falsified) and learn from the truth. These so-called "independentists" are, either brainwashed people (after more than 30 years of mental manipulation through the school system and the mass media control) or corrupt politicians, who have been stealing from public money for all that period of time or more.
    Search for the history of the corrupt politicians:the PUJOL family especially. They are behind this "movement". Spain is one of the greatest and most liberal countries in the world, just get informed.
    If there are politicians in prison is because they have done a terrible crime: to try to destroy a country. Try and do it in Russia or the USA, and wait to see what happens. We have done NOTHING: police officers were hurt by spoiled brats who were harassing and damaging them, and they could only use a defensive methods, with the orders of not using violence. Many of the images shown against the police in youtube are false, just as many of them were fake (you can also search about it) when, 2 years ago, some people in Catalonia tried to proclaim the region and independent country (they included images from different and previous demonstrations, not related with "independentism"). Do not believe these false news, invented manifestos and dangerous manipulative lies.

    I favor an independent Catalonia. Spain will only have a problems with insurgency if it continues to rule over an independent Catalonia.

    Why there’s no “Catalonian Human Rights and Democracy Acts” in USA? Protesters were being shot with rubber bullets, tearing gas and water canons. Police were beating them. Also, EU where‘s our liberty? Human rights only appeared while criticizing China?
