Spanish law criminalizes Human Rights activists

Please, help the spanish spring to survive, sign the letter to the Minister, as you may be the following.

Mr. Fernandez Diaz, Security Minister of Spain:
The Criminal Code provides a minimum sentence and remand for those who convene demonstrations that are considered "violent" online.

This Law breaches the Spanish Constitution and the following international treatries siged by Spain

1, 5 6, 8 of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders

Article 6, 8, 12, 19 and 22 of the International Covenant on Civil and

Article 10 and 11 of the European Convention for the Protection of Human

The Spanish Goverment must ensure that people can protest peacefully, disseminate information and to criticize the governments regarding breach of Human Rights.

Old dictatorship laws were repealed 50 years ago does not mean more security for the Spanish, even for those who do not complain. It means an increase of the protest and conscientious objection to abuse who abuse the weakest of our society.

These reforms terrorize the population, and urges them not to protest and accept the loss of Fundamental Rights, which is driven from the financial markets, with the complicity of European institutions, international and Spanish.

It also criminalizes civil protest calling passive resistance as a "crime of integration in a criminal organization" which may be punishable by up to 4 years detention.

An unauthorized sitting in front of the Police may be classified as attack Authority: Provisional prison and up to 4 years in prison

Mr. Minister, do not turn off the fire with gasoline. Institutions are to defend our citizens against the powerful, not to help break the powerful dignity of people. If no arguments logical and reasonable, at least, read the following international treaties, which are violated by their reform, and whose foundation is the Kingdom of Spain denounced by Human Rights Violation.

  1. Ahí va la carta al Ministro un poco más "stylish" ;)


    Mr. Minister, stop fighting fire with gasoline. Governments are supposed to defend citizens from the powerful ones, not to help breaking people's dignity.
    If you refuse logical reasons, please read at least the following international treaties which are violated by your reform and whose grounds will back up a denounce against the Kingdom of Spain for that Human Rights violation.

    Bringing back old dictatorship laws repealed 50 years ago does not grant any security to the people, even to those who do not complain. It would mean for sure an increase in number of protests and objectors to the abuse of the weakest ones in our society.

    Those kind of reforms terrorize people and urges them not to protest and consent to the loss of Fundamental Rights currently driven by financial markets with the complicity of Spanish, European and international institutions.

    This Law breaches the Spanish Constitution and the aforementioned treaties signed by Spain as it criminalizes civil protest considering nonviolent resistance to be a form of "attack against authority" crime and organizing online demonstrations likely to be considered violent to be a "criminal organization membership" crime, punishable by up to 4 years imprisonment.
