The unilateral route is more realistic than agreeing on a referendum

The president of the ANC, Elisenda Paluzie, has argued on Friday that "a negotiated independence is obviously better because it has less costs than the conflict and non-negotiation", but then said: "The unilateral route is harder and more complex, but also more realistic. "

This is what Paluzie has said in the presentation of the independence movement of the Diada when asked about the proposal that the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent, launched on Thursday to the government in office, which called for a pact that sets "clearly" the conditions to hold a referendum to solve the Catalan political conflict.

In the opinion of the president of the ANC, independence will come after "an onslaught that must have unilateral components because the Spanish state does not have the democratic quality of other states."

Paluzie has also seen as "positive" that the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, admitted last May before the Superior Court of Justice of Catalonia (TSJC) that disobeyed the "illegal" order of an "incompetent" body such as the Electoral Board to withdraw the yellow ties because it is due to a "superior mandate" of citizenship.

He has also called for "recovering the combination of civil disobedience and institutional disobedience" and betting on "non-cooperation with the oppressive regime" as one of the elements of the non-violent struggle advocated by the ANC.

The vice president of this entity, Pep Cruanyes, has also assessed as "a very important fact" that the UN Working Group on Arbitrary Detentions has asked Spain to release "without delay" and "in accordance with international standards" the leaders independentistas Dolors Bassa, Josep Rull, Raül Romeva and Joaquim Forn, as I already did in the cases of Oriol Junqueras, Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuxart.

"The repression will end a process in which these responsibilities will be purged, because it can not be that in a European State these rights are violated without anything happening," he asserted.
