The former president of the Generalitat, Carles Puigdemont, vindicated this Friday the unilateral declaration of independence approved by the Parliament in 2017 and called on the independence movement not to make a “rejection” of what they started to “build” before.
In a social network message, It may be little to some, and it may be as much to others.
Puigdemont warned in the same publication that they do not reject the declaration nor “will they reject it, no matter how many difficulties and no matter how many efforts others make to withdraw it,” and added that these six years they have “preserved it from the amnesiac drive” or devaluing some”.
The DUI (unilateral declaration of independence), Puigdemont said, remains “alive” if the independence movement unites “in a strategy, overcoming partisan temptations.”

Puigdemont’s message on this sixth anniversary comes in a very different context, among the negotiations with the PSOE before the inauguration of Pedro Sánchez as President of the Government, conversations in which a unique recognition of Catalonia and a mechanism are addressed. ratification of the agreements, in addition to an amnesty law that the pro-independence parties almost considered closed.
