Rally in Solidarity with Catalonia

December 16, 2017

Rally in Solidarity with Catalonia:

- to support the right of self-determination of the Catalan people
- to condemn the violence and repression unleashed by the Spanish government
- to ask the liberation of the Catalan political prisoners and
- to call the Canadian government to speak out against these attacks on democracy by the Spanish State.

We will gather on December 16th at noon, at the NE corner of Yonge and Bloor (in front of the Spanish Consulate building, 2 Bloor St. E) and we will have a few speakers. We encourage everyone to wear yellow clothes or bring a yellow complement to send a symbolic message. The yellow color (starting as yellow ribbons) is being used in Catalonia to ask the freedom of the elected Catalan political and the grass-root organization leaders that were sent to preventive jail after the referendum.

This rally has been organized by the Toronto Solidarity with Catalonia platform, in collaboration with the Catalan Centre in Toronto and ToCat.

Thanks everyone for your support and see you there!

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Venue: Spanish Consulate
Location: 2 Bloor Street East Toronto, ON
