Every one of us in the Assemblea Nacional Catalana (ANC) a Brussel·les shares the same dream as millions of Catalans in towns and villages in our country: that our nation be a free state in Europe, with the same degree of sovereignty as any other. No more and no less. With this in mind, we are working to create the political and social conditions which, very soon, will put us in a position to achieve this objective. We want Catalonia to be an independent, social and democratic state of law, alongside other European nations. We claim the right to self-determination for our people. The time has come for us to decide, together, our common future.
The ANC a Brussel·les was founded in January 2013 as a territorial assembly, similar to those all over Catalonia. However, it has a special task because it is in the capital of Europe, where the political bodies which govern the EU are based, clearly a key location for the sovereignty process. This makes it a strategic platform for trying to take to the heart of the EU institutions the democratic message of a country that wants to speak with its own voice there without having to pass via Madrid.
