The Democratic Union of Students of Spain (U.D.E.) recently informed C.O.S.E.C. of a series of arrests of Spanish students and professors which have taken place in Madrid, Valencia, and Barcelona. During the middle of April, seven students of the University of Barcelona were detained by the Spanish Police. On May 19 a detachment of the Spanish police arrested Thomas Llorens, Cesar Cimadevilla and Augustin Garcia del Leon, all students of the University of Madrid and Professor Mariano Rubio Jimenez. The series of arrests of students was extended to Valencia where five students have been imprisoned including one girl. These students have been accused of distributing pamphlets calling for a 24-hour strike of all Spanish students. (C.O.S.E.C., Leiden).
