She wants to “take the voice of the ones who are suffering repression and their families to Europe”, and to denounce “the violation of fundamental rights in a member state of the European Union”, a job that, since now, she has been doing in the Associació Catalana pels Drets Civils (Catalan Association for Civil Rights), made up of the families of the political prisoners and exiles.
