Full Schedule and program:

This will be followed by a talk from the MAR collective (Mares i Avies per la Republica/Mothers and Grandmothers for the Republic). This is a network of relatives of the recent victims of police brutality and abuse in Catalunya, following the independence referendum and who are fighting for justice and the freedom to protest.
