Spain: Catalan rappers take the rap for 'glorifying terrorism'

Amnesty International says Spanish prosecutors are using a charge of “glorifying terrorism” to stifle government opponents and freedom of expression. The latest targets are rappers, and their anti-establishment lyrics.

Musicians in Catalonia, which tried to split from Spain, are especially feeling the pressure. Many of them are facing hefty fines and even prison terms.
