The City Councils of Celrà and La Seu d’Urgell are being investigated for having supported the resolution on the beginning of separation passed by the Catalan Parliament
The ANC also offers support and solidarity to any other organization who may be investigated from now on for the same reasons
The Catalan National Assembly hereby expresses its support and solidarity with the City Councils of Celrà and La Seu d’Urgell and aligns itself with the Catalan Association of Municipalities (ACM) and the Association of Municipalities in favor of Independence (AMI), who are the promoters of the motions in support of Resolution 1/XI approved by the Catalan Parliament last November 9.
The ANC considers the opening a criminal investigation by Spain’s National Court to be an absurd legal response to the approval of a motion of a symbolic nature which has no real legal effect on the functioning of the local entity.
With the understanding that this is a political gesture protected by the freedom of expression, ideological freedom and the fundamental right to political participation, the Assembly also offers its support and solidarity to any other organization that is investigated for the same reasons.
