Basque Country: to jail for protesting in Pamplona

The totalitarian repression in Navarre has been increasing in the last decades, up to the point that citizens who just express their opinions publicly are getting not just beatings and fines but very serious prison sentences. 

One person was already punished to 5 years and 3 months of prison for the incidents in the protests of the San Fermin procession of 2011.

Now 13 citizens involved in the attempt of deployment of a giant Basque flag in 2010 are again being asked for penalties that total 33 years of prison (state attorney) or 160 years (private accusation).

The situation of widespread repression by the Spanish occupants reminds of the time of Fascism.
