Official statement about the 1st of October 2017
ICREA fully condemns recent violent events, unjustified and unjustifiable, exercised in Catalonia yesterday. We express our rejection, our indignation and our outmost disapproval. We believe that the use of force against citizens is unacceptable in any democracy.
Beyond the diverse personal political positions within the ICREA community, we have to reiterate that the only possible way out in any conflict, is dialogue and we will never cease to claim dialogue as the only legitimate means in a mature democracy.
