The president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, has defended that Catalans and Basques unite in a “democratic front in defense of freedoms” because together both peoples, he has proclaimed, “they are stronger and freer.”

Torra has received support and warmth today at a public event held in Donostia-San Sebastián, where the Catalan president has advised the Basques to unite and “do not lower their aspirations for freedom.”

Torra has delivered a conference on the process invited by the citizen platform Gure Esku Dago, which promotes popular consultations in the Basque Country.

The president, who at noon has met with the Lehendakari, Iñigo Urkullu, has received the support of a large group of nationalist political leaders, such as Joseba Egibar and Markel Olano, for the PNV, and Arnaldo Otegi, Maddalen Iriarte and Arkaitz Rodríguez, by EH Bildu y Sortu.

Torra has advocated for “keep moving forward” in the process towards the independence of Catalonia and has encouraged the Basques to follow the same path through a “stable coordination” between the different forces, without “lowering their aspirations for freedom.”

“I encourage you to exercise the right to self-determination that belongs to you and that no one can deny you, “said Torra, who has allowed himself to give” advice “to Basque nationalists:” I ask that sovereignty know how to establish stable coordination with shared objectives, unity is the formula that it has given Catalonia more results “.

He has also defended that Catalan and Basque nationalists unite in a “democratic front in defense of freedoms“because together both peoples, he has proclaimed,” are stronger and freer. “

“There is a possible expression in the European elections, we can bring the free voice of the peoples to the Europe of the States, we can make people feel the cry for sovereignty and democracy in the European Parliament. Basques, Catalans, Galicians, Valencians, Majorcans, we can all move forward at the same time to make our voices heard in the European Union “, said the Catalan president.

The president has profusely denounced the “revenge” and the “repression“With which, in his opinion, the State has acted against the pro-independence activists of Catalonia, at the same time that he has remembered the imprisoned and fled politicians and has compared their situation with that experienced by the leaders of the nationalist left convicted of the Bateragune case, a who have expressly cited to express their solidarity.

The next trial against the Catalan politicians who promoted the declaration of independence constitutes, in the opinion of the president, a process that does not go against these leaders or against the 2.3 million people who voted in the illegal consultation on October 1, but against “the right of Catalonia to be determined”.

Catalonia is, according to Torra, a town “plural and cohesive“, which does not suffer from any” coexistence problem “, but is” critical and has made resistance to injustice his life mandate “

In this society, it has abounded, have been established “three great consensuses“, which Torra has encouraged the Basques to share and” formulate “. The first is that they do not want to live” in an expired monarchy and under suspicion “, the second consists of” not tolerating repression, jail and exile “and the third refers to the need to “exercise the right of self-determination.”
