Call on Boris Johnson to talk to the president of the Spanish government

For the attention of the UK PM Boris Johnson,

I am writing to you to express my concern over the situation in Spain. Recently the activist Jordi Cuixart and eight Catalan political leaders were unfairly convicted of sedition. Cuixart, president of Omnium, will spend nine years in prison for exercising his human rights, such as freedom of expression and the right to protest. In total, the Catalan leaders will have to spend 100 years in prison for supporting a referendum.

This sentence “opens the door to criminalising peaceful acts of protest”, as Amnesty International has declared. Organisms such as the UN WGAD have demanded the release of the Catalan leaders, since “they were always acting in the exercise of their fundamental rights”.

The UK cannot turn a blind eye. Thus, I call upon you to convey to the Spanish PM the need to free the Catalan leaders and begin a process of dialogue to find a political solution for the conflict between Catalonia and Spain.

Thank you very much
