The letter pleads with the Catalonian President who needs to portray the will of the Catalonian people to secede from Spain. This would be made possible by organizing for a referendum. Spain’s Prime Minister also needs to understand that the secession is what the Catalonians want and he should thus provide a suitable environment. The poll will not only be advantageous to the Catalonians but everyone else in their surroundings and the neighbors.
Without peaceful settling of their disagreements, then there will be a breach of the basic ideals of the European Union. Spain was seen acting, by all means, to lower voter turn-out on the referendum. Postponing the declaration of Catalonian independence was a good move by their president. Spain’s Prime Minister needs to know that the Catalans already have shown their will. He should let this be represented in a referendum. For a note-worthy article, click this.
