Peaceful demonstration for Catalonia

  • Washington Square Park Washington Square North New York, NY United States (map)

We cannot ignore what is happening right now in Catalonia. After the arrest of members of the Catalan Government on September 20 we issued a statement in support of the referendum and the right of Catalans to decide their own future, and we held a symbolic protest outside the United Nations' General Assembly.

Having witnessed the use of police brutality in an attempt to sabotage Sunday's referendum, we call on you to demonstrate again. Whether or not you support independence, together let's condemn the violence of the Spanish state against a Catalan people that are peaceful, democratic, and determined to own their destiny. Let's add our grain of salt to the civic demonstrations taking place in our country and let our city know what is happening in Catalonia!

We hope to see you on Saturday, October 7 at 12pm in Washington Square Park.
