The Catalan President Artur Mas, who is fourth in the list, delivered a speech in which he defended ‘Junts pel Sí’ as an example of the determination of the Catalan people to achieve independence.

"Palabras por la independencia catalana" de Albert Sanchez Piñol

Tuesday, 25 august 2015 | Ñ CLARÍN
Revista Ñ (Clarín)   ALBERT SANCHEZ PIÑOL 17-08-2015   El pasado 1 de agosto la señora Nuria Amat publicó un artículo sobre el actual proceso político que estamos viviendo en Cataluña en la revista Ñ. Como ciudadano catalán, o simplemente como ciudadano, me siento obligado a expresar no ya mi estupor, sino mi desazón y pesadumbre por la suma de absurdos, vituperios y falsedades con que dicho artículo describe la realidad catalana.

El escritor Suso de Toro considera que la mitad de Catalunya no está loca (la otra mitad tampoco)

Friday, 21 august 2015 | Eldiario.es
«Excluir la opinión de esa mitad de catalanes que quieren la independencia cuando se habla precisamente de ellos solo se puede explicar de dos modos, o bien se censura su opinión conculcando la democracia o bien se les desconsidera como personas alienadas, locas», afirma Suso de Toro.

The vote abroad, a test for democracy

Thursday, 20 august 2015 | ARA
ARA   17-08-2015   EDITORIAL     In the 2012 Catalan elections the turnout among the Catalan community living abroad dropped to 7%, a figure that is rather poor. The reason was the change in the electoral law and the negligence of some civil servants in facilitating procedures, a combination of circumstances that resulted in a flood of complaints and a certain organizational chaos. With this learning experience behind them, Catalan institutions have gone on the alert well in advance so that the same thing doesn´t happen again on 27-S, and at the moment it seems that the procedures are working better, probably because the Foreign Ministry does not want any doubt about the cleanliness of the elections, even in an area that, quantitatively, might seem unimportant.

Gabriel Rufián: "El independentismo ha superado el antiespañolismo"

Wednesday, 19 august 2015 | PÚBLICO
Gabriel Rufián (Barcelona, 1982) se ha convertido en uno de los muchos catalanes que han decidido tomar partido por el proceso independentista desde la calle, sin pisar la tarima política. En su caso, lo hace a través de Súmate, la asociación soberanista que agrupa a catalanes castellanohablantes, y desde hace unos meses también como miembro del secretariado nacional de la Assemblea Nacional Catalana (ANC). Diplomado en Relaciones Laborales, accede a charlar con Público horas antes de acudir a la Plaça Sant Jaume a celebrar la convocatoria de las elecciones plebiscitarias del próximo 27-S.
