CATALONIA IN FLAMES
Barcelona is quite literally on fire, with protest rising up all across the Province synced with the release of the sentence of the Catalan politicians that were being judged for the events 2 years ago with the referendum. Here's a summary of the whole thing.SENTENCE
On Monday, it was released the sentence for the Catalan politicians that organized the referendum for independence 2 years ago
The result was 9-13 years for each, with a total of 99 years and a half among all of them

Among the proven cases of high violence is the counseling that was besieged and the justice functionary had to jump from a roof to the building nearby to be able to get out, politicians stood on top of police cars with megaphones to rile up the masses, the cars themselves were completely wasted, and more.
The rebuttal of the arguments for the independence that the Catalans wield is also very well done, not only it has no legal basis in international law, federal law or regional law, but it is also missing from most of all the constitutions of the EU and its legal systems is forbidden, and in many of those countries, the secessionist parties are illegal, and of course, no public money
