Four Catalan Political Prisoners on Hunger Strike
Today, December 6, is a bitter day. Officially, Spain celebrates all dressed up, with pomp and grandiloquent rhetoric, the 40th anniversary of a Constitution that is kept under lock and key to prevent it from ever being amended. It is irrelevant that four out of the nine Catalan political prisoners unjustly accused of “rebellion” for events occurring in autumn of 2017, are now on hunger strike. It is the only recourse they have to protest the discrimination and arbitrariness to which they are exposed under the highly politicized Spanish justice system.
