Democracy much?
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 ?.

We decoded NASA’s messages to aliens Catalan separatists stand trial 2 days ago   08:54

In 1977, twin golden records were sent into space on the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft. Still sailing through space at nearly 60,000 km per hour, the records contain sound, songs, and images from earth. But how did NASA include images on an analog record? Here, we decoded the audio, and see the images the way that aliens were intended to see them.

Special thanks to Ron Barry for walking us through his own audio decoding process, which got us excited in the story over a year ago. You can read about his own adventure and watch his process produce results in real-time in his own video in the links below:
