St Jordi a Dublin amb concert de Pau Alabajos + Campanya Signa un vot per la independencia



Vicent Partal in Dublin: Talk on Catalan independence

The talk that Vicent Partal gave last Tuesday (February 25th) in the Teacher’s Club in Dublin was a resounding success with larger turnout than expected. The event was organised by both the Irish branch of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) and the Catalan Council of Ireland.
Vicent started the talk by covering the chain of events that, over the last 9 years, have led to the current situation in Catalonia whereby a large majority is in favour of self-determination followed by the announcement by the Catalan government of a referendum on the matter on November 9th 2014.
He explained how the starting point of the current wave of support for the secessionist movement dates back to 2005 when a new autonomy charter was drafted by the Catalan Parliament with the backing of all but 15 MPs out of a total of 135. This new charter was then severely cut back by the Parliament in Madrid, subsequently approved by that Parliament into Spanish law and signed by the King into law. It was then put to referendum in Catalonia and despite the cutbacks it was accepted by a majority of the people in Catalonia. Some of the cutbacks were significant, such as changing article 1 that stated that Catalonia was a nation to read that it was an autonomous region of Spain. Apparently this was not enough. The 15 MPs that had been against the new charter from the outset, all members of the Partido Popular, the right/far right party now in power in Madrid, with the backing of the party as a whole, decided to challenge the new autonomy charter in the Constitutional Court, the highest court in the land. This court, consisting of a handful of politically appointed judges decided that the fundamentals of the new charter were unconstitutional. This represented an unprecedented situation in Spain whereby a law approved by two Parliaments, signed by the King and approved by the people in a referendum was overturned by a highly politicised court (it has to be added that some of the judges in that court were serving well beyond their term of service due to a deadlock between the two main Spanish political parties, that had been fighting each other over the appointments of those judges for years).

The Catalan community in Ireland organised today a successful Human Chain in support of Independence of Catalonia

On Sunday 01st of September 2013 the Catalan community living in Ireland (ANC Ireland and the Catalan Council of Ireland) organised a successful Human Chain in support of independence of Catalonia. The Dublin human chain coincided with more than 100  similar  other events taking place world wide and a massive one that will take place in Catalonia next September 11th.

It has been a very successful event with more than 300 attendees, exceeding by far the organisers expectations with people from all nationalities and ages gathered in front of the Dublin’s General Post Office (GPO), O’Connell Street. As an act of friendliness and gratitude towards their adopted country, Catalans  welcomed other Irish who wished to join in and be a part of the “human chain” today.  Among them many of themthe member of Dáil Éireann, Seán Crowe, TD for the constituency of Dublin South West.

 The organisers have chosen the General Post Office (GPO) in Dublin to hold the event as the building is a symbol of Irish independence and freedom, for its historic relevance. The people who gathered together, sang several songs of freedom together with the Catalan national anthem and chanting independence songs. The event was conducted in a festive yet civilised atmosphere and passers by showed great interest and congratulated the organisers. This event has been video recorded and subsequently will be shown throughout most of the national media in Catalonia.
The Catalan community in Ireland gives its full support to independence for Catalonia and today united its hands peacefully showing support to Catalonia and its desire for independence. Today’s event was also useful to explain to Irish citizens and tourists why the people of Catalonia want their independence from Spain as soon as possible.
Currently, the Catalan government is not allowed to hold a referendum of independence or decide any relevant issues as it is subordinated to the Spanish government and does not have full power of decision. Catalans want to participate democratically in a referendum for independence. This referendum could show then, that Catalonia is mature enough to govern itself with its own voice in the European Union and the United Nations.
However, as a referendum is not allowed by the Spanish government, the social movement “Catalan National Assembly”   http://catalanassembly.org/     who last 11th   September  mobilised around one and a half million people during a peaceful rally in Barcelona as a show of solidarity with the Catalan Government and in support of the proposed Referendum, are organizing a “human chain” of over 400,000 persons holding hands that will peacefully stretch along the entire country from north to south (about 400 Km) on 11 September 2013, Catalonia’s national day. More than 200 foreign journalists have requested to be able to cover the Catalan Way, creating a much higher international interest than for last year’s huge rally.
Like the Catalan Community in Ireland completed today, many Catalan communities abroad are also participating in this serene symbolic gesture creating their own “human chains” in more than 100 cities around the globe. New York, Paris, London, Buenos Aires, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Beijing, Bangkok, Los Angeles, Boston, Rome, Miami, Frankfurt, Vancouver … and many more !!! Such as a similar event that will also be held here in Cork next week:

·          Cork   Saturday, 7th  of September at 17h pm Grand Parade, in front of Cork City Library

The ANC Ireland wants to say  to all those who attended the event and the ones who have shown interest in this rather unusual representation of good  will where many people peacefully holded hands for a minute or two to symbolise their support of a nation’s democratic right to decide its future by means of a Referendum.”
