32-year-old rapper Pablo Hasel was sentenced to 9 months in prison for “glorifying terrorism” and insulting the King of Spain. Thousands of people have been protesting in the streets of Barcelona, as well as other cities not only in Catalonia but throughout Spain, after forcibly bringing him to prison for several days. There are clashes with the police.
Over 8,000 supporters of Catalan rapper Pablo Hasel took part in Sunday’s protest in the streets of Barcelona. Over 100 people were detained.
The demonstration ended again with riots and clashes between the protesters and the rapid reaction police.
Some of the protesters began erecting barricades from rubbish bins and knocking over barriers set up by the police. Stones and bottles went in motion.
Riots in the streets of Catalan cities have lasted since Tuesday, when the police forcefully took Pablo Hasel into prison.
A rapper who is actually called Pau Rivadulla Duró, he was sentenced in 2018 to 9 months in prison for insulting the king of Spain, the judiciary of Spain, during concerts and on the Internet, as well as glorifying the Basque terrorist organization ETA.
Juan Carlos, father of the present King Philip VI, he called the leader of the mafia. He accused the police of “torturing and killing demonstrators and immigrants”.
On Monday, he barricaded himself in front of the police at the University of Lerida, and the next day he was forced to a prison.
According to the police, the people protesting in his defense are mainly anarchists and activists of extreme separatist organizations.
