Barcelona (Spain), Apr 16 (ANI): Hundreds of protestors marched in Barcelona to demand the release of the Catalan pro-independence leaders in prison. The protesters, many clad in yellow t-shirts in support of the jailed leaders, marched shouting in Catalan "Freedom" and waving banners reading "Puigdemont President". Many protesters claim Spain is violating the rule of law by imprisoning politicians who they believe are 'political prisoners'. Spain claims the Catalan leaders are not political prisoners because they broke the constitution when they held the banned referendum.
