Free the political prisoners! Action on 16/01/2018

On Tuesday, 16 January, the Jordis, who led the two main pro independence movements in Catalonia, will have been in prison for 3 months. ANC and Òmnium Cultural are holding events across Catalonia to mark the date, with rallies in front of town halls.

There will be international actions over the next few days to support the demand to free the political prisoners, with different elements including the collective signing of a ‘mega postcard’.

We are asking the participating groups to:

  • Tweet photos with #WithCatalonia and the central Catalan hashtag #SomGentdePau (We are people of peace).
  • Send the signed “postcards” to the prisoners.
