(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Catalonia: for the right of peoples to self-determination! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 2 Oct 2017 11:30:36 +0300

In Catalonia as elsewhere, for the right of peoples to dispose of themselves ! Gathering in front of the Spanish Embassy Place Pierre Brisson, Paris 16 th , metro Alma Marceau Wednesday, September 27 at 18h ---- The threats and then the repression exercised by the Spanish State in Catalonia are intolerable attacks on democracy. The Spanish police invaded several official buildings of the Generalitat de Catalunya, arresting officials of the administration and ministers. More broadly, extensive police operations were organized against autonomist and independence circles. It was a guardia civil who was entrusted with these tasks ; it does not have the legal powers to act thus on the Catalan territory ; the central authority flouts its own rules of operation. It is a political choice ; that of denying the people the right to decide their future.

By all means, the central government wants to prevent the referendum scheduled for the 1 st of October. Many organizations of the Spanish state alert: " The current events show how far the specter of Franco is still present. "

Referendum or not ? Independence or not ?

It is up to the people living in Catalonia to decide ! Not to others.

The occupation forces of the Spanish State must withdraw.

It is not for us to decide either. We may have opinions on these subjects ; they may be different. But our common responsibility is to support those who defend fundamental freedoms and rights ; in this case, the right of peoples to self-determination.

Associations, trade unions and political signatories combat all forms of colonialism and defend the right of self-determination of the peoples: in Catalonia as in Kurdistan, in the Basque Country as in Kanaky ...

We denounce the state violence against the population of Catalonia.

We support those who fight for the referendum of 1 st October to occur.

We support the social movements that organize resistance, like unions calling for strike action in the coming days.

Against state violence

For Freedom and Democracy

For the right to self-determination of peoples

We organize a rally in front of the Spanish embassy in Paris, 22 avenue Marceau, Paris VIII e , metro Alma Marceau, Wednesday, September 27 at 18 am (appointment: place Pierre Brisson).
