We need 23,230 signatures by December 24, 2012, in order for the US
government to take the petition seriously.
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Support the People of Catalonia in their effort to decide their own future
The People of Catalonia, the Northeastern region of Spain, would like
to hold a referendum on whether or not they would like to become
independent from the Spain. The Catalan people have their own distinct
language, culture and traditions that are not being respected by the
Spanish government; many Catalans do not feel Spanish, but rather a
Catalan citizen without their own State. In 2012 during their national
holiday, 1.5 million people took to the streets of Barcelona to demand
independence, yet the Spanish government simply ignored them. In
adherence to the guiding principles of our own Declaration of
Independence, we ask the United States government to stand with the
Catalan people's right to decide a future that is best for them
through a fair and democratic referendum.
Created: Nov 24, 2012
Issues: Foreign Policy, Human Rights
