MORE than 4,000 people took part in a solidarity demonstration in Palma earlier this week to denounce the jailing of Catalan separatist leaders.
The protestors marched down Passeig des Born to the Consolat de Mar, where they read a manifesto in which demanded the release of jailed politicians and activists, announcing that new demonstrations would take place in the next few days. Outside of the Government headquarters there was a large police presence, halting protestors converging onto the Paseo Marítimo and disrupting traffic.
The march was organised by the Balearic Cultural Work, the Sobiranista Assembly of Mallorca, Més and EsquerraRepublicana de Catalunya and other independent entities. The organiser’s manifesto was read by journalist, GlòriaFranquet, stating that “we will continue to take to the streets demanding the freedom of all political prisoners and the return of exiles”.
After the violencethat was experienced in Barcelona and Madrid, the main Balearic parties commented that the march inthe capital was relatively peaceful.
