Allow Catalonia to Have Independence Vote

Target: José Manuel Maza, Attorney General of Spain

Goal: Allow citizens of Spain’s Catalan region to use their voices and vote in referendum.

Catalonia, a region in Spain, is being forbidden from having a vote for independence by the government of Spain itself. The government of Spain is even threatening to arrest those who attempt to share their voice in this vote.

Catalonia has a regional president and a unique language and culture separate from that of Spain. As a result, some in the region have long seen themselves as independent from Spain, but the Spanish government is seizing ballots and refusing to allow citizens of Catalonia to potentially make that independence official.

Many nations have voted via referendum to separate themselves from ruling powers. The U.K. just did so in regards to Brexit, and Scotland recently held a vote (that lost) to become independent from the U.K. Catalonia should be given the same opportunity. Sign the petition and ask that citizens of Catalonia be allowed to vote.


Dear Attorney General Maza,

The government of Spain is arresting officials and seizing ballots of voters in Catalonia who are attempting to vote for the independence of their region. Some citizens of Catalonia have long seen themselves as independent from Spain.

Whether for or against independence, the people of Catalonia have the right to decide for themselves. Other European nations have done so. I ask that you allow Catalonia to hold its vote.

    I will sign because I believe everyone has a right to decide things that affect them. I am concerned about the amount of influence Russia has on the break up of countries. They’re involved in Spain, UK, France, Germany, Iraq(Kurds), also, Texas and California. They’re goal seems to be to make other countries smaller while they enlarge Russia(Ukraine).
