Our comrades have been acquitted of all charges by the Court

On March of 2012 nine workers that joined a massive picket line during the general strike were arrested by the police on charges of civil disorder, coercion and threats.

3 of them were members of Intersindical-CSC. The massive picket line, using the right to strike, cut a highroad and afterwards went to Badalona city in order to inform the reasons of the strike to citizens and shops.

Some days later, all of them were arrested by the police in their homes or in their jobs.

This week all the workers have been acquitted of all charges by the Court .

According The Court sentence, the defendants were drawing the attention on job insecurity and poverty using the right to strike. And even when they cut a highroad, they clearly and properly signposted the action with a tyres barricade in an adequate safety distance avoiding any car crash. Meanwhile, the defendants allowed all ambulances to cross the picket line.

The rest of the charges presented by police were on threatening shopkeepers to close their shops during the general strike.  During the trial the prosecution was unable to submit sufficient evidence to support its charges.

For all these reasons, The Court closed the file provisionally, and not to proceed to trial.
