The President of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, believes that the ruling of the Constitutional Court against the Statute demonstrated “the uselessness of a dialogue with the State within the constitutional limit” and has assured that he does not renounce exercising “non-violent disobedience” to achieve the independence.
In an act in Bassella (Lleida), the president referred to the tenth anniversary of the high court ruling that “cut” the Statute of Catalonia, a verdict that for Torra “changed many things” because it was “a unilateral act of the State “that broke” the pact that we had given ourselves since the transition and since democracy. “
“Since then we know something, that the independence of Catalonia is irreversible and that we do not have to give up anything that in a peaceful, democratic way and, when necessary, disobeying in a non-violent way leads us to the independence of Catalonia. We do not have to give up nothing, “he continued.
Torra has also referred to the event on Twitter, where he has linked an interview with former Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero.
From the words of the socialist leader, Torra draws “two conclusions”, as he says: “the contempt for the will of the people of Catalonia and the uselessness of a dialogue with the State within the constitutional limit.”
