Libertad De Expresión

at

Last night.

Barcelona, Spain.

The sixth night of rioting over the imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hasél.

Several protesters broke windows at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Palau de la Música Catalana and also attempted to storm the city’s Stock Exchange.

Hasél, whose real name is Pablo Rivadulla, has been in prison since  last Tuesday after he was found guilty of ‘glorifying’ the now-defunct Basque terrorist group Eta and ‘slandering’ the  Spanish royal family, the police and the court system in a series of tweets.

    Does anyone know what he actually said?

    Was it just glorifying Eta and slagging the royal family or was it more?

    Coz if it was just the words he said, sticking him in prison is awful.

        I think I’ve read worse on Twitter than what this bloke said. Much worse.

        That’s pretty mad he’s gone to jail for that.

          According to a family member of mine in Madrid, a lot of his criticism of former King Juan Carlos is justified and a good representation of public opinion in this matter. The Spanish Royal Family is not very popular, apparently, either.

            That’s really worrying tbh.

            If he’s committed libel then they could just take him to court for it – but sticking him in prison. Hmmm…

            Not good
