The polls and the hope, the votes and the eagerness, the will and the peace, to reach the right to be, the right to walk down the road to where our freedom is.



America, United Kingdom, Australia... You have showed to the world that in the XXI century you don't be afraid of freedom.
Has any part of your state asked for an independence referendum? Mostly not. Because all the parts of your state want to belong to your state. They feel loved and respected inside the big state. Even in Canada, or in U.K, people decided to stay in the big state, when their democratic governments accepted the democratic path of polling. Neither Canada nor U.K were afraid of accepting a referendum, because these countries are deeply democratic, and because they believe in freedom.  And Scotland and Quebec decided freely to remain in U.K and Canada. This was the victory of the freedom and the democracy, and this was the victory of the peace too, because the borders of these states were decided not by the power of the violence but through democratic and peaceful tools.
In Spanish state there is a captive nation called Catalonia. This nation is captive because he can't decide its future. Threats, gag laws, contempts and snubs to the catalan language, ban of Catalan language in Europe, ban of referendums to decide the future, forbiddance of using the word nation in catalan laws to refer to Catalonia, abusive dispossession of benefits generated by catalan corporations, imposition of educational strategies by spanish state without respect to the Catalan educational system.
So far Catalonia has survived by begging a recognition; but the moment of the freedom has arrived.
Henceforth we are going to exist without begging recognition, because we are a  nation, and because we don't want to be a slave country.
Three centuries ago, we lost a war, and Spain worked hard to destroy us as a culture and as a country. But now, next sunday, we will win a pacific and democratic battle, using the polls and the hope, the votes and the eagerness, the will and the peace, to reach the right to be, the right to walk down the road to where our freedom is.
We only ask you, American, British, Australian, to the whole democratic world... to give us moral support, international recognition... to explain everything that happens here... to love the rights of the small and prisoner nations, to make statements not thinking about economical interests but thinking about human rights, human justice, freedom, democracy and peace, and to work as brothers and sisters for the right to decide of every nation because only the states that are freely united deserve to stay united. 
Next sunday, Catalan elections will give us the answer.
