Abstract

I lay out the procedure and the logic for suing the Spanish government for its treatment of the Catalan referendum of 1 October 2017. I claim that the Spanish Constitutional Tribunal's decisions which gave legal ground for Mariano Rajoy's attempt to crush the referendum, are in violation of the freedom of speech and the right to peaceful assembly protected by the Spanish Constitution, EU law, and International law.
