Catalonia in figures.
We are a twenty thousand people from everywhere in CATALONIA, women and men
fighting for our catalan language and culture.
“MNIUM CULTURAL is an historical association in defending this legitimate
national catalan objective.
TOWARD A EUROPE OF PEOPLES AND NATIONS
Although the travel brochures may not have nade it clear to you, you are
on Catalan soil.
You are in Catalonia, a country inhabited by a people
different from the others in the Iberia Peninsula.The catalans, together
more 10 milion people (Catalonia extends from Salses in French state to
Guardamar in spanish state and also includes the Balearic Islands) have
their own language and culture.
This has come about not by chance but by collective effort. Catalonia has
been forged over more than a thousand years of history and this relations,
in art, in fiestas,... wich have nothing to do with bullfights and flamenco.
All these features are alive, despite the centralised, mited concessions
wich Catalans institutions have won back.
As civilised pearson in favour of individual rights we ask you to make a
small effort to know and understand the country wich welcomes you and to
realise that is a distinct nation. Through this you try.
In this way, while you are on holidays, together with the catalans, you will
contribute to a united Europe in wich all peoples and historical nations
participate equally on the basis of solidarity and justice for all. We
thank you for your acceptance of the catalan people.
