    The authorities took him all the way to the Spanish High Court.

    From August 27 to September 2, we're getting the word out, through
    blogs, press releases, and other media. Here's the idea: We want this

    coverage of this case, and the true deficit of democracy in the
    Spanish State, as well as the fact that the Catalan people are now
