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.

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.
