The Turkish journalist Can Dündar traveled to Catalonia to attend the National Day rally as an act of defiance to the international arrest warrant issued by the government of Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that keeps him exiled in Germany.

Dündar criticized the imprisonment of Catalan pro-independence leaders in Spain, and compared their detention to that of Turkish dissidents. “We have political prisoners in jail and Spain has political prisoners in jail,” he said. “The only difference is that Spain is a member of the European Union and Turkey is just a candidate.”
