When the judges take political decisions, who will protect our
Come on Tuesday, November 5 at 12.15 to the court at Parnassusweg
220 in Amsterdam and demand:
Freedom for Juanra!
Since October 25 Juanra is in the prison at Vught again. It's time
he is released again!
Juanra was locked up again because if he would flee it would hurt
the Dutch relations with Spain. But he will not flee. Not only was
a bail of 20.000 euros paid, but also he appeared at three separate
court hearings, knowing fully well that there was a large risk for
him of being locked up. Even when the court decided on October 24
he had to return to jail, but released him saying he should report
a day later, Juanra did not run away.
The decision to lock up Juanra therefore is completely political.
The Netherlands wants to please the Spanish authorities. Once again,
civil liberties are pushed aside. The relations with a country that
uses torture against political opposition are valued more than basic
democratic and human rights.
On November 5, we will fight the pointless political incarceration
of Juanra in court. We've asked people to express their political
support, and to provide money to increase the bail. At this moment,
over a hundred people have made personal guarantees for Juanra.
When the Netherlands decided to extradite Juanra, they legalized
Spanish torture. When the Netherlands decided to lock up Juanra,
they implemented direct political repression.
This cannot be tolerated!
Juanra must be released!
