Catalonia National Day demonstrations fall under crime of rebellion
September 11 marches were classified as rebellion by Spanish Guardia Civil Police
The Spanish Guardia Civil police force delivered a 560-page document to Judge Pablo Llarena of Spain’s Supreme Court, including events to add to the case against pro-independence leaders and the deposed Catalan government. In the report, the law enforcement organization lists the demonstrations organized since 2012 on September 11—Catalonia’s National Day—as information for the trial, which includes a lawsuit for the crime of rebellion. This was confirmed by the lawyer of deposed vice president Oriol Junqueras, Andreu van den Eynde, who also wrote on Twitter: “In the end they did it: according to the police, Catalonia’s National Day demonstrations are part of the crime of rebellion.” Van den Eynde also wrote the specific pages in the document where this was mentioned. Additionally in the document are first and last names of individuals that the police force believes to have been responsible for the roadmap to independence, including Esquerra Republicana (ERC) number 2 candidate, Marta Rovira, former Catalan president Artur Mas, and CUP candidate Anna Gabriel.
