Spain: Sit-in protesters demand release of Catalan leaders

Scores of protesters have staged a sit-in in front of the L'Acollidora sculpture in L'Hospitalet de LLobregat, a metropolitan region immediately southwest of Barcelona, on Monday, in solidarity with jailed Catalan leaders Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez. Protesters chanted «Freedom, political prisoners» and held banners reading «SOS democracy». Local resident Adolf said «I have come here with my... Еще neighbours to ask, peacefully, that Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez get released because they are still in prison». Another local named Eliset said that «they [Cuixart and Sanchez] have been the first because I guess they thought they were the ones that were organising the people, and [without them] we would not continue the demonstrations. But I think that unfortunately that after them there would be more, because they [Spanish institutions] are unstoppable» Locals from l'Hospitalet de Llobregat have promised to organise a similar protest every Monday at 20:00 (local time) until Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sanchez are released.
