Catalan political prisoners free

95,961 signatures

In English | In Dutch

In Spain, Catalan leaders have been held in pre-trial detention since 2017, despite Amnesty's insistence on their immediate release. Our government is concerned about Poland and Hungary, but sees the situation in Catalonia as an internal Spanish issue. The members of the European Affairs Committee and the members of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Lower House should be concerned about this.



Catalans in the Netherlands and Dutch (in Catalonia) and European citizens, concerned about the situation in Spain



  • That Catalan leaders have been in pre-trial detention since 2017 for baseless charges of rebellion;

  • That Amnesty, OMCT and Front Line Defenders are calling for their immediate release;

  • That Spain is in breach of Article 2 of the Treaty of Lisbon (respect for human rights);

  • That the Dutch government does not take an active position regarding the human rights violations in Spain, but does on the human rights in Poland and Hungary.


and request

To do everything possible to ensure the release of the Catalan political prisoners.
