CATALAN PROCESS is a completely non-profit site born with the aim of spreading the words of Catalan process for national independence. During decades, the international community seemed to ignore Catalan national ambitions, to which international press referred only very randomly. However, since the huge independentist demonstration that took place in Barcelona on September 11th 2012 and the decision of Catalan President Artur Mas to engage the process to celebrate a referendum for independence, millions of people all over the world are hearing about the Catalan conflict for the first time.
Why do Catalans feel Catalan? Why don’t they feel Spanish? Was Catalonia ever an independent country? What’s the origin and History of Catalan national movement? What cultural characteristics do Catalan people have? Do they have their own language? Would Catalans live better if their country was independent? Can Catalan economy sustain an independent state? Do Catalans want to continue being citizens of the European Union?
These are only some of the lots of questions you might have about Catalonia. Nearly three hundred years of Spanish domination have made Catalans nearly invisible for the world. We will make our best to let you know a bit more about Catalonia, and rediscover what you already knew about this stateless nation on its way to self-determination.
PLEASE, SPREAD THE WORDS ABOUT THIS SITE AND ABOUT THE PROCESS STARTED BY THE PEOPLE OF CATALONIA TO BECOME A FREE COUNTRY. YOUR HELP IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN YOU THINK. WITH THE SPANISH GOVERNMENT DENYING THE RIGHT OF THE CATALANS TO DECIDE THEIR OWN FUTURE IN A DEMOCRATIC REFERENDUM, THE ROLE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY IN THE PROCESS WILL BE VITAL.
