(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - International solidarity against repression in Catalonia (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 10 Oct 2017 15:41:50 +0300

We express our solidarity with the Catalan people, who peacefully mobilized themselves in a massive way to defend their right to decide their future. We strongly condemn the police repression that did not hesitate to use force to try to prevent the referendum. ---- More than 10,000 agents of the state security forces were deployed throughout Catalonia to try to close the polling stations, requisition the ballot boxes and the ballot papers. 844 wounded by the police of the Spanish State who violently charged those who wanted to vote, breaking the doors of the schools striking the elderly, children, even attacking the police of the Mossos under the supervision of the Generalitat and to the Catalan firefighters. ---- Faced with the repression of the Spanish state, the vote for the right of self-determination of the Catalan people is exemplary. The will of a people can not be stopped. Despite the deployment of the Guardia Civil, mobilization has protected many of the polling stations, with more than three million voters, 770,000 of whom have not been able to see their votes count more than 400 polling stations having been invaded by the police and their urns stolen. Catalonia has demonstrated today that, against a State which refuses to accept a referendum and to listen to the expression of a majority of the population, the Spanish Constitution, the product of a compromise reached in 1978 with the Francoists, is exceeded. This legal framework is used as an excuse to support, the violation of fundamental rights and direct attacks on the freedom of the peoples of Spain. We call for international solidarity to denounce the repression of the Rajoy government and defend democracy. Faced with a democratic demand such as the right to self-determination, the solution can never be repression and violence.

We may have debates about the validity of Catalonia's independence or about the limits of the current process, but we share principles that lead us to say together:

We reaffirm our support for the democratic rights of the people of Catalonia.
We support the interprofessional strike organized by several trade union organizations to defend the rights and demands of all workers in Catalonia.
We condemn the complicit silence of the French authorities and call on citizens, democratic, trade union, political and associative organizations to join forces with the people of Catalonia.
Against state violence
