The Catalan National Assembly has called an urgent demonstration this evening at 7:30pm in front of the Spanish Government Delegation building in Barcelona (at the corner of Roger de Llúria and Mallorca Streets) among other Catalan cities, to demand a ‘country that is free of State-sponsored corruption’.

The demonstration’s message is an expression of the indignation generated by recent press reports indicating that the Spanish Government is involved in fabricating stories against Catalan pro-independence political leaders.

Catalan members of the European Parliament including Ramon Tremosa and Ernest Maragall announced late yesterday that they would protest the Spanish Government plotting in parliamentary session today.

We at the ANC defend the consturction of a free, just and democratic Catalan Republic, where there is no room for such actions that infringe our people’s most basic liberties.

What: Demonstration for a country free of State-sponsored corruption

Where: In front of the Spanish Delegation Building in Barcelona (at the corner of Roger de Llúria and Mallorca streets) and in other Catalan cities.

When: Today (Wednesday, June 22), at 7:30pm
