Belgium: Catalan MEP blasts EU for supporting Spain at rally

More than a hundred people rallied in support of Catalan independence and for jailed Catalan leaders at a rally in Brussels on Sunday, which was led by European Union Member of Parliament, Josep Maria Terricabras. Protesters held flags, sang the Catalan anthem and chanted pro-independence slogans during the rally. Terricabras roused cheers and rounds of applause from the crowd as he decried... Еще Europe's decision to treat the Catalan crisis as an internal Spanish issue, warning the crowd, «when you attack democracy you cannot applaud,» adding that, «if that is accepted, the whole of Europe will suffer.» The Spanish government charged several government and civic figures from Catalonia with rebellion, sedition and the misuse of public funds. Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont was among the leaders under arrest warrant, and who subsequently fled the country after Madrid imposed direct rule over Catalonia.
