Public letter to Rt. Hon. PM David Cameron on the Catalan issue

              *** CLICK ON "Més informació" BELOW FOR THE TEXT OF THE POST ***
Dear Prime Minister,
As expatriate citizens from different countries with strong ties with the United Kingdom, we firstly wish to express our sincere admiration for the democratic position your Government adopted over the Scottish Referendum. The Scottish people were given the opportunity to decide their own future, an iniciative that must be deemed fair, modern and democratic. It is due precisely to the wisdom of this decision, however, that we consider it a contradiction that, on November 10th, you should have publicly expressed your support for Mr. Rajoy over the Catalan independence poll which was declared “illegal” by the Spanish Government. This successful poll was conducted in the most democratic fashion as certified by a group of MEP observers, headed by Mr. Ian Duncan, giving a result of over 80% support for Catalan independence. Many Catalans regret the implicit blessing that your statement bestowed on Mr Rajoy’s blunt opposition to the right of Catalans to vote. On the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall, and  301 years after the British Government’s tragic failure to comply to the terms of the Treaty of Genova at Utrecht, the signatories of this letter feel that today it should be the duty of the British Prime Minister, and other European leaders, to support the Catalan people in their bid to find a democratic solution to their problem and to take into their own hands the key decisions regarding their political future. It is a right no European people should be denied.

Yours faithfully,
