Judicial review of police behaviour in the Catalonia referendum

Call for their government to hold a judicial review into the actions of the Spanish police’s conduct towards civilians attempting to vote in the Catalonia referendum.

Why is this important?

The Spanish police’s behaviours were violent and totally disproportionate. This was not policing by consent. The primary role of the police should be to protect and serve the people, not act as a para military arm of which ever government is in power.
The events were unacceptable in a western democracy. There needs to be some form of accountability, otherwise a potentially terrifying precedence has been set.
