Building Support

The campaign group aims to build awareness about the legal and political implications of these cases and build support among the local community for the rights of Iñaki de Juana and Arturo ‘Beñat’ Villanueva. To this end we are approaching political parties, trade unions, community groups, human rights organisations and more.

Through this website, leaflets, articles, public meetings and more, we aim to spread the information about the details and context of these cases.


There is an urgent need to rapidly build awareness and support. This is because the Belfast judge has already ruled against Iñaki de Juana and the date for his appeal hearing is June 29. The nature of both European Arrest Warrants mean they have to be dealt with very quickly.

The campaign is also urgent because these two men face possible long prison sentences and the risk of torture if the extradition attempts are successful.
