⚖️ We demand justice & accountability for this disproportionate use of force against civilians who were exercising basic #HumanRights: freedom of expression & assembly; and the right to vote. ❗️State violence and repression hasn't ended the conflict between Catalonia & Spain 👇

🆓 After lots of international pressure, they all were eventually pardoned after spending almost four years in prison. Still, there is much to be done: ⚖️ Real justice via @ECHR_CEDH ✊ An amnesty for all those prosecuted 🗳️ Self-determination for Catalonia We can do it 💪
