|Demonstration "We Are a Nation, We Decide"|
in Barcelona on 10th July 2010.
Yesterday, on the 2nd of September 2011, the Spanish judicial system gave an ultimatum to the Catalan government: Spanish is to be made a vehicular language in the Catalan educational system within two months. The response of the majoritary worker uninons, associations of professors and the Federation of Parents is that they will never obey this ruling, and that demonstrations will be prepared for the National Day of Catalonia, on September 11th.

“We should not choose weak and less effective means, but the most robust and likely to delete from the memory of the Catalans anything that might conform to their old and abolished constitutions, laws, rights and customs”.–Spanish Council, 1715
“Each of them (viceroys) must observe, obey and execute, and make observe, enforce and implement timely and effectively my Royal Resolution [...] that once and for all, all the languages are to be extinguished [..] and only Spanish is to be spoken, as is commanded by repeated royal decrees and issued orders”.–Charles III, King of Spain, 1770
|Territories where Catalan is spoken,|
and its different dialects.
The Occitan language of Aran—an administrative region in Catalonia that nationally belongs to Occitania— faces exactly the same situation. The Catalan Statute of Autonomy of 2006 protected the Aranese self-government and language, and recognized its distinct Occitan nationality. All sentences against the Catalan language also attack Occitan.
Please, Help Catalonia and Aran.
