The 12 accused are being judged for rebellion in the aim of pretending to gain independence in a unilateral manner without taking into consideration the wishes of the rest of The Spanish Kingdom and against the Spanish Constitution. Would you think fair a minority of citizens of one of the Regions of your Country to start a rebellion pretending to separate one of the Regions of your Country against the overall majority of Citizens of your own Country ?.

🇪🇸 Who are the 12 Catalan leaders facing Catalan separatists stand trial 1 day ago   01:57

Twelve Catalan separatist leaders will go on trial in Madrid on Tuesday, accused of rebellion for a referendum on Catalonia's independence in 2017.
The referendum was not sanctioned by the government in Madrid, and violence broke out around the voting. Assigning blame for that will be a focal point of the trial.

The case is being heard as the government continues to face criticism over its attempts to hold talks with Catalan separatists to try to defuse the crisis.
