This afternoon, the president of the Government of Catalonia, Quim Torra, took part in a demonstration to mark the National Day of Catalonia, where he thanked the thousands of Catalans who had taken to the streets, “yet again, against all the self-serving predictions of those who didn’t want this day to be a success”.
 
“Our National Day celebration this year is a huge demonstration of Catalans’ determination to freely and democratically decide their future,” Torra said.
 
The head of the executive stressed: “Today marks the end of one stage and our response to the sentences begins. […] Achieving the objective of independence is our challenge, and that’s the goal we’ll pursue – calling for our colleagues to be released, of course, but knowing that any right we are denied is one we’ll exercise again, starting with the right to self-determination.”
 
Today’s demonstration was organised by the Catalan National Assembly, with the collaboration of Òmnium Cultural and the Association of Municipalities for Independence, under the slogan “11S – Objective: Independence”. This year participants formed a star in Plaça d'Espanya and along adjoining streets (Creu Coberta, Tarragona, Gran Via, Paral·lel and Maria Cristina).
