He then stated that the result of the vote is “a thermometer for the socialist militants and voters themselves on whether the party defends the human rights standards that should be part of its democratic DNA or whether, on the contrary, the changes that the PSOE leadership has made in the party in recent years have led to an image-oriented PSOE extremist of the now almost extinct Podemos in matters of foreign policy.”

The vote in Spain is in line with the resolution of the European Parliament of last February 29, which was the last of six resolutions condemning the violation of human rights that the seat of sovereignty of the European Union has made in the last legislature, he recalled Prisoners Defenders in a statement prior to today’s vote.
