International community must defend Catalonia’s political autonomy - Gerry Adams TD

19 October, 2017 - by Gerry Adams

Responding to the news that the Spanish government will move to suspend Catalonia’s political autonomy on Saturday, Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD said;

“Prime Minister Rajoy’s decision is aggressive and will serve only to deepen the crisis. The international community, particularly the European Union, must defend Catalonia’s right to political autonomy.

"It is through inclusive dialogue and inclusive international mediation that a way forward will be found.

“Yesterday, I called on the Taoiseach and the Irish government to take a leading role in this imperative.

“The Spanish government must pull back from this disastrous decision."
