BarcelonaDolors Bassa has been the first one of the political prisoners to leave prison this morning, due to the obtention of the open regime for the second time. The former Catalan minister of Work and Social Affairs has made a call for mobilization: "I want to tell everyone to mobilize, because every person who stays at home on 14-F is a vote that goes to 155. We must vote, we must win again, we must show them that the ballot boxes are on our side again".

A while later, the seven prisoners of the penitentiary center of Lledoners -Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Jordi Turull, Josep Rull, Joaquim Forn, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart- have also left prison. Only the former speaker Carme Forcadell will stay in prison because she is still waiting for the Justice department to analyse her case.

"I know that the Prosecutor's Office wants us surrendered, but we are standing", Jordi Turull stressed. Raül Romeva, the former conseller of Foreign Affairs, has mentioned the case of Pablo Hasél: "We must not accedt this repression anymore, it has to end".
