The Casal Català de Vancouver demands the release of the political prisoners

Currently nine persons, most members of the democratically elected Parlament of Catalonia, other leaders of civic organizations are in preventative jail with no bail accused of imaginary crimes. Seven other persons are in exile for the same reasons. Currenly the German, Belgian ans Swiss justice systems have rejected extradition based on the flimsy charges put forward by Spain.

To vote is not crime and to defend the independence of Catalonia by pacific means is not a crime either.
