Statement upholding freedom of expression

In response to the arrest and imprisonment of rapper Pablo Hasél this morning, the Teatre Lliure, Mercat de les Flors, Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, L'Auditori de Barcelona, Palau de la Música and Gran Teatre del Liceu reaffirm and reiterate our commitment to freedom of expression and our respect for the fundamental rights of creators.

Statement upholding freedom of expression

Likewise, we support those whose right to freedom of expression has been infringed and we highlight the innate transgressive value of culture.

This is why we uphold the words "Without freedom of expression, there is no democracy", painted on a poster known to everyone by Fabià Puigserver in 1978– words that are more meaningful today than ever before.
