#CatalanEU
Last Tuesday, a political trial against members of the previous @govern, against social leaders of the main civil organizations of #Catalonia and against the former president of the @parlamentcat began in Spain #CatalanEU

But the trend does not automatically translate in to support for far right or populist nationalist parties. Greens did well this weekend at the polls in Belgium and in Luxembourg too

Here is my transcript.
