Casal Català de Vancouver reaction to the sentence imposed by the Spanish courts to the Catalan political prisoners.

The Casal Català de Vancouver, as a civic and cultural entity that is always a defender of the freedom of expression, democratic values ​​and the right to decide, states:

Their total rejection to the unfair, disproportionate and vindictive sentences imposed by the Spanish Supreme Court to the Catalan social and political leaders.

The Casal considers that the sentence is a direct attack on the freedom of expression, demonstration and association. Values ​​that represent us and which we defend.

The Casal Català de Vancouver wants to ask the Canadian institutions to intercede as far as possible in resolving the conflict between Catalonia and Spain and to ask for the immediate release of the sentenced social and political leaders. They were democratically elected by the people of Catalonia and that the majority of them have been re-elected in the last polls.

From Vancouver we want to express our support to the political prisoners and their families.
