After the graces granted to those that tried to present a coup in opposition to Spanish democracythe abolition of the crime of sedition in case they occur to re-offend or the discount of sentences for rip-off independentists for being independentists, 2023 could possibly be the yr of the holding of the session or the referendum on independence in Catalonia. aragonese already introduced it and Sanchez He denied it, so it is solely a matter of time earlier than he is executed. In case you can.
Allow us to recall some primary democratic notions, if crucial. A component can’t determine for the entire. The way forward for Spain (its territorial group or its distribution of powers and, in fact, its survival) is determined by all Spanish residents. The so-called “proper to self-determination” that separatists declare to separate from Spain isn’t a proper acknowledged by worldwide regulation, irrespective of how a lot they insist on it. The UN solely acknowledges it for 2 instances: for settlements throughout the framework of decolonization processes and for territories belonging to a State by which the rights of residents are violated, exactly to guard and safeguard mentioned rights. Catalonia isn’t a colony. And the rights which can be violated within the autonomous group are nothing greater than the rights of non-nationalist residents residing in mentioned territory, akin to the suitable to check in Spanish, amongst others. The proper to determine that the nationalists declare is nothing however the suitable that they arrogate to themselves to stop the remainder of us from exercising our proper to determine on issues inside our jurisdiction.
I don’t deny that there are supporters of the definitive dismemberment of Spain (they’re already engaged on it, both out of political conviction or out of electoral curiosity) and the independence of its elements; Nevertheless, what’s in power is the Spanish Structure of 1978, which is the widespread regulation that we should all respect, so in the event that they wish to drag us down these paths of division, they should modify it, for which they should persuade an immense majority of Spanish deputies and senators to acquire the required votes for this objective. It’s democratically undesirable however not inconceivable in Spain; sure, this should be completed in line with established authorized procedures.
The session will probably be carried out surreptitiously, calling it one other title if crucial, in order that the remainder of the residents haven’t any voice or vote
When this melon is opened, in the event that they lastly dare and attain the required help (which, in precept, is unlikely, if not inconceivable), we will probably be thousands and thousands asking for a brand new distribution of powers which implies extra powers for the Authorities of the Nation and fewer for the Autonomous Communities; and, already put, the abolition of the primary extra provision of the Spanish Structure, which protects and protects the so-called historic rights of the foral territories, each the Basque financial settlement and the Navarrese settlement. The truth is, there have been already those that proposed the reform of the Spanish Structure to hold out these reforms, as a method of guaranteeing extra equality and extra well-being for all; nonetheless, the required votes weren’t obtained for this. And right here we proceed, scrupulously respecting the legal guidelines, in contrast to the pardoned Catalan separatists and those that promise to violate them once more with impunity because of authorized reforms sponsored by the PSOE.
Since they could not dare to hold out the reform in an open method, as a Democrat would do, they are going to perform the session surreptitiously, calling it in any other case if crucial, in order that the remainder of the residents that now we have neither voice nor vote, that’s to say hand over our political rights and our proper to determine; for such is the suitable to self-determination that they declare for themselves: the denial of our proper to determine.
This yr 2023 needs to be the step of resistance or resignation to counter-attack and definition. The very first thing will probably be to defend the Spanish Structure from those that wish to finish it
as you say Fernando Savater, the query we should ask ourselves isn’t what’s going to occur however what’s going to we do. And one of the best ways to safeguard our rights and our framework of coexistence and to oppose the intentions of those that need simply the alternative, isn’t a lot to lament what they’ve already completed and what they intend to proceed to do, however somewhat to defend our concepts with conviction and with out worry. The plurality of concepts of these of us who should not nationalists. Sure, I do know there are some who’ve been doing it for years, however it’s a must to insist and absolutely change your technique. This yr 2023 needs to be the step of resistance or resignation to counter-attack and definition. The very first thing will probably be to defend the Spanish Structure in opposition to those that wish to put an finish to it; however then will probably be a query of defending as many political, institutional and constitutional reforms as we deem essential to excellent our democracy, regenerate our establishments, battle in opposition to political corruption and assure extra equality and extra well-being for all. With out resentment however with out worry to those that have spent years doing and undoing at will. For the good thing about the best quantity (nearly at all times silent).
