comunistes de catalunyaAbout 40 communist and worker’s parties from around the world, includig the communist parties of Greece, Portugal, Italy and Brasil, have undersigned a statement of solidarity with the Catalan people and against the political repression of the Spanish state against the political movement in Catalonia:

The undersigned, Communist Parties and Workers gathered in St. Petersburg at the XIX Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties condemn the repression that the police of the Spanish State exercised on October 1 against the people of Catalonia in their struggle for the right to self-determination , the right of expression, assembly and demonstration.

They express their rejection of the application of art. 155 of the Spanish Constitution in Catalunya made by the PP Government, which has led to the dissolution of the Catalan Parliament, the removal of the President of the Generalitat de Catalunya, his Vice-President and all his Government, as well as intervention in all areas of the political rights of Catalonia.

We request that the case be opened to Joan Josep Nuet, General Secretary of Comunistes de Catalunya and other members of the Parliamentary Board accused of the crimes of Sedition, Rebellion, and misappropriation of public funds.
