Le retour de l’autoritarisme en Espagne

Tuesday, 19 september 2017 | LE DEVOIR
La répression est une arme à deux tranchants: elle peut inspirer la peur et paralyser l’action ou encore elle peut susciter l’indignation et accroître la détermination et la combativité. Les Catalans choisiront-ils de reculer ou accepteront-ils l’affrontement avec l’État espagnol?

Les manifestations qui se sont succédées en Catalogne chaque 11 septembre depuis six ans auraient dû balayer les doutes que d’aucuns pouvaient encore avoir sur la volonté des Catalans de se prononcer sur leur avenir collectif.

Pour cette raison, les députés élus aux dernières élections se sont attelés à la tâche de permettre l’expression de la volonté du peuple à travers la tenue d’un référendum sur l’indépendance qui a été fixé au 1er octobre 2017.

Wie in den vergangenen Jahren sind auch dieses Jahr wieder Hunderttausende auf die Straße gegangen, um das Recht einzufordern, selber über ihre Zukunft bestimmen zu können. Kataloniens Regierung hat dafür eigens eine rechtliche Grundlage geschaffen und für den 1. Oktober die Abhaltung eines Referendums über Kataloniens Unabhängigkeit ausgerufen. [+]
