In March 2018, Hasél was sentenced to two years in prison for praising GRAPO terrorism and insulting King Juan Carlos I on Twitter.[11] In early 2021, he was ordered to voluntarily enter prison to serve a nine-month sentence for this conviction. He publicly refused this order,[31] and was eventually arrested on 16 February. Hasel, alongside a group of over 50 students, had barricaded himself inside University of Lleida’s rectorate building in protest against his sentence.

I had some doubts but looks like they actually booked him for insulting the king. I find this too ridiculous to believe for an European country in the 21st century. But turns out, another rapper had to flee to Belgium for similar reasons.

I had no idea Spain was like this.

Yep, he basically says out loud what a lot of people think, namely criticising the monarchy and the capitalist state. And of course the state cant let that go unpunished.

Anyway, Pablo Hasél is a great musician, here’s his song Comunista (English lyrics).

Holy fuck that song rules.

Comunista porque no se come de metafísica

Y un cambio radical de base la humanidad necesita

Antiracistas, antimachistas, evolución pedimos

Socialismo científico, marxismo-leninismo

:fire:

He was charged with inciting terrorism and insulting the monarchy (King in this case).

The invidious instance linked seem to be down … Here is a mirror to another one
