Yes, I copied and pasted this info here -- from the WeAreAllHabiba page on Facebook (linked above).  
We have a group going to the Spanish consulate here in Sao Paulo, Brasil, also!
(x-posted in Lactivism) An international day of protest at Spanish embassies is planned for Wed, June 15th in response to this story. Below is the summary for anyone who hasn't been following.
