Former Catalan president, Carles Puigdemont, and dissident Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, will give a joint talk on human rights, democracy and political prisoners, on November 21 in Brussels.
In the talk, they will address "democratic values and political imprisonment" in an event to be held in the Maison Grand-Place in the European capital. The talk will be moderated by a German journalist.
Puigdemont and Ai Weiwei first met in Berlin, when the Catalan political leader was waiting to hear the resolution of Spain's request to extradite him.
After their meeting in April, Ai Weiwei described Puigdemont as a "brave leader" who has "tested human rights and democracy in Europe."
