The following is a statement from the Texas Nationalist Movement on today’s decision by the Catalan Parliament to unilaterally declare independence.
Catalonia has officially declared independence from Spain. It is expected that Madrid will attempt to dissolve all Catalan offices and exert direct rule. This would be like DC terminating all Texas officials and ruling Texas themselves.
The Texas Nationalist Movement stands by Catalonia and offers our best wishes. Our hope is that the EU and international community will recognize the right of the Catalans to self determination as they have so many other territories around the world.
