The Time of the Brave Manifesto

Manifest L'Hora dels Valents

The Time of the Brave is a new manifesto in favour of independence for Catalonia, which has been signed by a number of patriotic groups who expressly want to put the Catalan people first. You'll find my English translation below and then the original text in Catalan.

The Time of the Brave Manifesto

At this decisive moment for the future and destiny of our country, Catalonia, the grassroots social platforms CANDIDATURA CIUTADANA PER LA INDEPENDÈNCIA (CCI - Citizen's Candidacy for Independence), the BLOC SOBIRANISTA CATALÀ (BSC - Catalan Sovereignty Bloc), the ATENEU SOBIRANISTA CATALÀ (ASC - Catalan Sovereignty Athaeneum) and the MOVIMENT IDENTITARI CATALÀ (M.I.C - Catalan Identitary Movement) are in agreement and consider that the Time of the Brave has arrived.

The rights of Catalan men and women and the freedom and identity of our people cannot wait any longer! This is why we are signing this manifesto and offer everyone who wants to the chance to join and make it their own.

It is the time of the brave when we will gain the independence of Catalonia and recover the freedom and identity of our beloved country!

For this reason, although we are sceptical that an undemocratic and imperialist state like the Spanish one, which has shown itself over the years to be incapable of dialogue will allow the democratic celebration of a referendum like in Scotland, we give our support to a YES in the referendum, a Yes to the free state that for many years our nation, Catalonia, deserves to be.

But we are warning that in the case of the Spanish government not allowing the Catalan people to freely express itself at the ballot box, we want to hold a Unilateral Referendum and if this isn't recognised as valid, we then demand that in such a situation the majority in the Catalan Parliament, the 72 deputies of Junts pel Sí and the CUP immediately and automatically declare the independence of our country from the Parliament of Catalonia. In other words, make a Unilateral Declaration of Independence just like other countries have done. Because now is the time of the brave!

It is the time of the brave in order to truly defend our people, the rights of the Catalans!

And for this reason we demand that all the economic and social help, grants, jobs, protected accommodation, benefits etc. in Catalonia go to Catalan people, end up in the hands of Catalan men and women!

We are sick and tired of being politically correct while Catalans suffer in their own country without any help! This is our social justice: to defend and help our fellow Catalan countymen and women. It is the time of the brave to say enough is enough!

Because of all of this we are drawing up and signing this manifesto because the moment of truth has arrived, the time of the brave, the time to stand up and tell it like it is, the time to forget being politically correct and to take action!

We do not want the cowardice and treason of some to be the end for many Catalans and the disappearance of our beloved Catalan land.

It Is The Time Of The Brave! With No Fear Of Being Free!

Manifest L'Hora dels Valents

En aquests moments decisius pel futur i esdevenir del nostre país, Catalunya, la plataforma social de l´independentisme de base CANDIDATURA CIUTADANA PER LA INDEPENDÈNCIA (CCI) , el BLOC SOBIRANISTA CATALÀ (BSC), l´ATENEU SOBIRANISTA CATALÀ (ASC) i el MOVIMENT IDENTITARI CATALÀ (M.I.C) estem d´acord i considerem que ha arribat “L´hora dels valents”.

Els drets dels catalans i les catalanes i la llibertat i la identitat del nostre poble no poden esperar més!Es per aquest motiu que signem el present manifest i l´obrim a tothom que se´l fagi propi i es vulgui adherir:

Es l´hora dels valents per aconseguir la independència de Catalunya i recuperar la llibertat i la identitat del nostre estimat país!.

I per això, tot i que som molt escèptics que un estat com l´espanyol, imperialista i poc demòcrata com s´ha demostrat al llarg dels anys, dialogui i permeti la democràtica celebració d´un Referèndum d´Independència com l´escocès, recolzem el Sí en el referèndum, el sí a un estat lliure que ja fa molts anys que la nostra nació,Catalunya, mereix ser.

Però advertim que en cas que el govern espanyol no permeti que el poble català s´expressi lliurement a les urnes i no deixi celebrar aquest referèndum, volem que es fagi un Referèndum unilateral (RUI) i sino es reconegués com a vàlid,aleshores exigim que, arribat aquest cas, la majoria independentista que hi ha al Parlament, els 72 diputats de Junts pel Sí i la CUP, declarin de forma immediata i automàtica, la independència del nostre país des del Parlament de Catalunya, es a dir fagin una DUI! Com han fet altres països. Perque ara és l´hora dels valents!!

Es l´hora dels valents per defensar de veritat la nostra gent, els drets de la gent catalana!.

I per això demanem que totes les ajudes econòmiques i socials, beques, feines, pisos de protecció, subsidis, Catalunya siguin realment per a la gent catalana, que vagin a parar als catalans i catalanes!.

N´estem farts de “bonisme” mentre gent catalana ho passa malament a la seva pròpia terra sense cap ajut!. Aquesta és la nostra justícia social: defensar i ajudar als nostres compatriotes catalans! Es l´hora dels valents i dir prou!!.

Per tot això redactem i signem aquest manifest perquè ha arribat el moment de la veritat, l´hora dels valents, l´hora de plantar cara, de dir les coses com son, d'oblidar el políticament correcte i passar a l´acció.

Que la covardia o traïció d´alguns no sigui la fi per molts catalans i la desaparició de la nostra estimada terra catalana.
