THE Scottish premiere of a film documenting the immediate aftermath of the jailing of multiple pro-independence Catalan figures will be held on Wednesday.

In October, protests broke out when a number of politicians and civic leaders were handed long prison sentences for their role in the 2017 independence referendum.

Former Catalan vice president Oriol Junqueras was convicted of sedition and misuse of public funds and sentenced to 13 years in prison, while the former foreign minister, labour minister and regional government spokesperson were given 12-year sentences. The former speaker, interior minister and territorial minister were given 10 and a half years, and two grassroots activists received nine-year sentences.

Following the news at the time, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said the result was a “dreadful outcome”

Now, Radical Independence Campaign Edinburgh is hosting the Scottish premiere of the documentary, titled Catalonia Is Anti Fascist and produced by Reel News.

A spokesperson said: “This 40-minute film shows the occupation of Barcelona airport by 20,000 people immediately after the sentences, an unprecedented general strike called by just two small rank and file unions supported by 1.5 million people in Barcelona alone, and continued daily protests by a people who, with their entire government either jailed or exiled and with violent repression of peaceful protests, see no alternative but direct action and civil disobedience.”

The film will be shown at the Augustine United Church in Edinburgh on Wednesday at 7pm.
