Catalans Protest After Germans Arrest Puigdemont

It seems the Germans have decided to do the bidding of the thuggish regime of Spain.  They’ve arrested the former President of Catalonia, Carles Puigdemont, and intend on turning him over to the Spanish, who have a warrant for his arrest.
He will face charges of treason and inciting riots, the go-to favorite charges of thuggish regimes since such things as thuggish regimes existed.
The Catalans have responded by protesting across Catalonia, where the Spanish thug regime sent out its goons to rough people up, injuring 89 people and arresting four others.

Spain Catalonia: Mass protests after Germany detains Puigdemont

Protests broke out across the Spanish region of Catalonia on Sunday after former leader Carles Puigdemont was taken into custody in Germany.

At least 89 people were injured in clashes with police and four arrests were made.

Mr Puigdemont, who is wanted in Spain for sedition and rebellion, was detained by German police acting on a European arrest warrant.

He will appear before a German judge later on Monday.

Mr Puigdemont was detained while crossing from Denmark on his way to Belgium, where he has been living in self-imposed exile since Catalonia’s parliament unilaterally declared independence from Spain in October.

A European warrant for his arrest was reissued on Friday.
