Rapper imprisoned | Seventh night of demonstration in Barcelona





(Barcelone) Pour la septième nuit consécutive, une manifestation à Barcelone en faveur du rappeur emprisonné Pablo Hasél a dégénéré lundi en affrontements avec la police, avec des actes de vandalisme et l’incendie de mobilier urbain.

Après un rassemblement pacifique aux cris de « Liberté pour Pablo Hasél », les manifestants ont défilé dans le centre de Barcelone jusqu’au siège de la police nationale, où certains ont lancé des bouteilles et d’autres objets sur les véhicules qui le protégeaient, selon des images télévisées.

Les manifestants se sont ensuite dirigés vers d’autres rues de la deuxième ville espagnole où ils ont mis le feu à des bennes à ordures.

« Des groupes d’émeutiers enflamment des barricades […] and throw objects at neighbors who complain about their attitude, ”wrote on Twitter the Catalan police, the Mossos d’Esquadra.

The demonstration on Monday evening, on a rainy night, however, drew fewer people and the clashes were less violent than those of previous nights.

Since Tuesday, 109 demonstrators have been arrested in this region of northeastern Spain, according to Catalan police.

Pablo Hasél, 32, was sentenced to nine months in prison for apologizing for terrorism, for having in a tweet calling King Juan Carlos I a “mafioso”, praising people involved in attacks and accusing the police of ‘killing and torturing migrants and protesters.

His arrest revived the debate on freedom of expression in Spain and reinforced the differences within the government coalition between the Socialists of President Pedro Sanchez and the Podemos party (radical left) which supports the demonstrations.
