Catalonia is the largest non-state European nation. The Catalans are aware and proud of having a history of more than a thousand years. The splendid Catalan literature and culture is an essential part of Europe. The Catalan language is the mother tongue of millions of Europeans. In 1934, the president of the Generalitat of Catalonia declared Catalonia's independence from Spain. In 1936, General Francisco Franco began (with the help of Germany) his coup d'état and the Spanish civil war that provoked the suppression of the Catalan nation and its language for many years.

In the 21st century the Spanish army should not be allowed to be thrown against the Catalans who want to achieve state independence by peaceful means. Europeans from all countries and nations should do their utmost to ensure that the conflict between the central government of Spain and Catalonia is resolved this time peacefully.

The right to free, peaceful and democratic self-determination of nations is above the legal limits of a state that wants to impose its legal system on millions of people which feel treated as second-class citizens because they are catalans.

Catalonia is unconditionally part of Europe. The European Union and all European countries should clearly state that any use of military force in the current conflict is unacceptable and that, if in fact a new Catalan state was created, it would be so welcome to the European Union as it was until now the region of Catalonia with the metropolis of Barcelona and as will continue to be Spain.
