Spain has imprisoned a rapper for insulting the government in his Tweets. Barcelona and many other Catalan cities, along with Madrid have been erupting in civil unrest as people protest to demand the freedom of rapper Pablo Hasel, who the government sentenced to prison for nine months because of his tweets which were insults against the Crown and the police. These protests, which began in Barcelona against the Mossos d’Esquadra, the Catalan police force, which in turn responded with smoke bombs. These protests are reflecting the frustration over the lockdowns which have erupted into riots, fires, and even looting.
The build-up of frustration has led to civil unrest erupting on just about any excuse. This is more than just a protest over the wrongful imprisonment of Pablo Hasel. This is simply a reflection of the totalitarian state that governments are trying to impose using this virus as the justification to hide their real agenda – the Great Reset.
