Jordi Cuixart and Jordi SanchezEdit

As per discussion above, I'll add Jordi Cuixart and Sanchez as political prisoners, since this is stated by some mainstream media and political parties and fits the definition. See references. Thanks! --Jey (talk) 22:52, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

And some bigot chose to remove them. According to the discussion on this page, those against their inclusion are basically arguing that because their gaolers do not consider them political prisoners, they are not. That is not mere lack of critical thought, questionable ethics and poor democratic culture: that is sheer stupidity. Anyway, even if they were not political prisoners the moment they were arrested, they bloody well are now that they are kept in remand defying all logic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:36, 19 March 2018 (UTC)

Catalan political prisonersEdit

An agreement had already been reached as to their status, and that was even before the recent developments in Germany and Scotland. Nevertheless, certain users with Spanish sounding-handles or Spanish IPs insist on trying to remove their names surreptitiously. Why? Are those Wikipedia users as cowardly as those who govern them? I feel pity for you chaps. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:54, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

I have approved your edit as it appears that the inclusion of these people is warranted by consensus above. That said, please do not insult other editors as it is against policy and may result in a block.

It is not us, the editors, who have to determine what their status is. Amnesty International issued an official statement considering the charge of sedition and the preventive imprisonment "excessive" but made it clear that does not consider them political prisoners.[1][2] --BallenaBlanca 🐳 ♂ (Talk) 18:32, 31 March 2018 (UTC)

Added back the names that had been censored edited out in good faith. This has been discussed at length above. You may not agree with the consensus reached by other editors, in that case please try to persuade them to change their minds but do not edit stuff single-handed just because you think you know better.
