Spain: Anti-Catalan activists protest outside court as Blanquerna case accused start jail terms

A group of Spanish nationalists gathered outside Madrid Provincial Court to show their support to those accused in the Blanquerna case, as the convicted persons reportedly began their jail terms on Wednesday. They also protested against the Catalan independence referendum. The protesters chanted slogans such as «freedom for the patriotic prisoners», «they won't fool us; Catalonia is Spain» and... Еще «national unity,» while waving Spanish flags and extreme-right Falange emblems. The demonstrators organised Wednesday's gathering in front of Madrid Provincial Court to show support and demand freedom for the accused. The sentencing in the Blanquerna case was announced last Friday, reportedly condemning 14 far-right extremists to begin their prison sentences by September 27, after they attacked the Blanquerna Cultural Centre on September 11, 2013, during Catalan National Day festivities. The length of the jail terms has not been reported.
