World must hear about this.

Spanish authorities have prosecuted a child for considering him being a terrorist! Incredible but true!

14-year-old Èric Bertran e-mailed companies requesting labeling in Catalan language, using the "Phoenix Army" monicker from the Harry Potter books. The Spanish police accused him of organizing an Al Qaeda cell. The authorities took him all the way to the Spanish High Court.

From August 27 to September 2, we're getting the word out, through blogs, press releases, and other media. Here's the idea: We want this film about the Èric Bertran case to be seen as many times as possible from September 3rd to 9th, so that it ends up ranking in the "most watched" circuit.

Through this coordinated effort, with the help of new communications and information technologies, we hope to get some international coverage of this case, and the true deficit of democracy in the Spanish State, as well as the fact that the Catalan people are now demanding their right to define themselves as a sovereign nation.

The documentary has been uploaded to YouTube in five parts. Here's the link to the first part of the video, for the purposes of the mass viewing:
