THE reopening of a case against three feminist protestors is the latest example of how freedom of expression is stifled in Spain.
Last month, a student was given a suspended prison sentence after tweeting about the 1973 assassination of Francoist Prime Minister Admiral Blanco.
In 2016, three puppeteers were jailed for a show that referenced Basque terrorist group ETA.
And Spain’s controversial 2015 gag law, which bans taking photographs of the police, has seen journalists fined and drawn sharp criticism from human rights groups.
Three years after the Sevilla trio marched a plastic vagina through the streets of Sevilla, they are set to be hauled into court.
It seems a huge waste of time and resources.
