Sovereignty of Catalonia and respect of political rights

The People’s Unity Candidacy Party is organizing this press conference to speak about the situation in Spain and more precisely in Catalonia. Since 2012, Catalonia is engaged in a self-determination process by leading consultations with the people aiming at holding a referendum; the most recent has taken place on 1 October 2017.

With a participation of 43.3%, a majority of 2.033.038 voted for independence of Catalonia from the Spanish State. The referendum took place in a context of repression and police violence.

Catalonia is at a stalemate. Which are the stakes today to come out of it peacefully? What is the role of the international community in front of this regression of rights and liberties in the Spanish State?

Activist for human rights and social movements, ex Paliamentarian of CUP (People's Unity Candidacy) in the Catalan Parliament

Mrs. Aina Tella i Arbós
