A group of more than 70 intellectuals signed a manifesto ahead of the Catalan election on Sunday, warning that “encouraging participation is not only important, but also crucial to curbing separatism.”. Figures such as Mario Vargas Llosa, Fernando Savart or Luis gortisolo call on Spanish society to continue to show “solidarity and sympathy for Catalans, for those we feel so lonely.”. “If each of us, from anywhere in Spain, proves once again that the Catalans of senny – with common sense – are not alone, we will help increase participation and become the protagonists in the restoration of senny and the reconstruction of Catalan society,” they reflect.

Intellectuals took October 3, 2017, two days after the illegal referendum, as a starting point, when “all citizens established ties, friendship and solidarity with their Catalan compatriots”. They went on to say that the trigger was the message of King Philip VI, who said “three simple words” in his letter: “you are not alone”, which triggered what they call “the wave of solidarity” and showed the whole Spanish Society “a very important part of Catalan society”.

Now, more than three years later, the signers of the declaration of unity and mobilization, including Maite pagazatudou and Carmen Posadas, They warned that Catalonians were facing an election in which “separatists tried to regroup in order to restore as soon as possible the challenges to the country and our democracy, with the support of the” most likely constitutional rehabilitation programme “.
