Let Catalans Vote/DEIXEU VOTAR ELS CATALANS

Let Catalans Vote

by Desmond Tutu, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Ken Loach, Harold Bloom et al.

An open letter by twelve personalities calling on the denialist Rajoy to stop abusing the law and let Catalan vote as is their democratic right:

“A majority of Catalans have repeatedly expressed in different ways the wish to exercise their democratic right to vote on their political future. This strong demand to vote is the result of longstanding dissension between the governments of Catalonia and Spain over the degree of cultural, political, and financial autonomy that Catalans should enjoy, despite several attempts to reach an acceptable solution. As the precedents in Quebec and Scotland show, the best way to solve legitimate internal disputes is to employ the tools of democracy. To prevent the Catalans from voting seems to contradict the principles that inspire democratic societies. Accordingly, we call on the Spanish government and institutions and their Catalan counterparts to work together to allow the citizens of Catalonia to vote on their political future and then negotiate in good faith based on the result.” Signed by Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Laureate; Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Nobel Peace Laureate; Ken Loach, cinema director; Saskia Sassen, Columbia University; Richard Sennett, New York University; Harold Bloom, literary critic; Antonio Lobo Antunes, writer; Bill Shipsey, Founder of Art for Amnesty International, Paul Preston, historian and Hispanist; Ambler Moss, former USA Ambassador.

Carta oberta de dotze personalitats demanant al negacionista Rajoy que pari d’abusar les lleis i deixi votar als catalans votar, que és el seu dret democràtic:

 

“Una majoria de catalans ha repetidament expressat de formes diverses el desig d’exercir el seu dret democràtic de votar sobre el seu futur polític. Aquesta sòlida demanda de votar és el resultat d’una llarg desacord entre els governs de Catalunya i Espanya sobre el nivell d’autonomia cultural, política, i financera que els catalans poden obtenir, tot i els diversos intents d’arribar a un acord acceptable. Tal com mostren els precedents de Quebec i Escòcia, la millor manera per solucionar les disputes internes legítimes és de fer ús de les eines de la democràcia. Impedir que els catalans votin sembla contradir els principis que segueixen les societats democràtiques. Per tant nosaltres demanem al govern i les institucions espanyoles i a les corresponents catalanes que treballin conjuntament per a facilitar que els ciutadans de Catalunya votin sobre el seu futur polític i després negociin de bona fe sobre el resultat.” Signat per Desmond Tutu, premi Nobel de la pau; Adolfo Pérez Esquivel, premi Nobel de la pau; Ken Loach, director de cinema; Saskia Sassen, Columbia University; Richard Sennett, New York University; Harold Bloom, crític literari; António Lobo Antunes, escriptor; Bill Shipsey, fundaior d’art per Amnistia Internacional, Paul Preston, historiador i hispanista; Ambler Moss, exambaixador de l’USA.
