💔 This Monday the judgement on the events of October 1st was announced. Leaders of #Procès face a decade deprived of freedom. Fundación Goteo believe that under this decision, civil disobedience will suffer and we will have to defend it when it comes to fighting against the next round of austerity ahead.
📬 In this newsletter we defend freedoms through the initiatives of organizations of legal defense, free-honest media and change makers, towards the empowerment of a # Democratic Footprint and #Social Footprint that makes us more responsible for handling our rights, duties and freedom.

🖋 The Trade Union of Journalists of Catalonia wants to defend the rights of workers in the information and communication sector by guaranteeing decent labor conditions, respect for deontology, ethics and journalistic independence; also the Right to Information of citizenship.
