Two more international manifestos released in support of the Catalan people
DIPLOCAT – Individual declarations released by politicians, deputies, political parties and Human Rights organizations and several manifestos have condemned the violations of civil and human rights in Catalonia
The police repression against the Catalan referendum on self-determination on 1 October has generated numerous criticisms from personalities from different countries and different political orientations. Besides the individual declarations released by politicians, deputies, political parties and Human Rights organizations, several manifestos have condemned the violations of civil and human rights in Catalonia. The two more recent ones arrived from Slovenia and Italy.
Request of support to the Catalan people
More than 2,600 politicians and personalities from Slovenia have signed in just four days the manifesto “Request of support to the Catalan people”. The signers urge “the institutions of the European Union to do everything in their power” to help promote a dialogue between Catalan and Spanish authorities and “acknowledge the results of the referendum in which 90% of the voters voted in favour of the independence.”
The first signatories of the Manifesto are Milan Kučan, first President of Slovenia; Dimitrij Rupel, former prime minister; and the intellectual Spomenka Hribar.
Catalonia: it’s a European issue
The Italian manifesto “Catalonia: it’s an European issue”, signed by twenty personalities from the left-wing, “condemns the violence of the National Police and the Guardia Civil against the defenceless Catalans on Sunday 1October” and demands that “the political responsibility of the aggression is clarified.”
