Protests continue in Barcelona against imprisonment of Spanish rapper | FULL

CA, 22 Feb 2021
Supporters of jailed Spanish rapper Pablo Hasél threw bottles, stones and garbage containers at police on Sunday during the sixth-straight night of clashes in Barcelona.

About 1,000 demonstrators gathered in the city, local police said.

Hasél was arrested Tuesday after being handed a nine-month prison sentence in 2018 for insulting the monarchy and glorifying terrorism in a song about former King Juan Carlos I.

The imprisonment of Hasél, known for his fiercely anti-establishment lyrics, has sparked a debate over freedom of speech in Spain, prompting the government to announce it would make speech laws less restrictive.
