The 2,000 charges were convened last week by former Carles Puigdemont with the intention of creating a new body that, apart from the Government and the Parliament, articulates a response to the ruling and works to try to achieve self-determination. The idea of ​​the expresident is to create an entity "freed from servitude and censorship" that is not under the threat of justice or disqualification.

Assembly of Càrrecs Electes starts in Barcelona to lay back the independence unit and respond to the Supreme Court ruling

The expresident drives this entity “freed from servitude and censorship” to work for self-determination without the threat of disqualifications

Torra, Aragonès, Torrent and several members of the Government have wrapped up the creation of this new body

Two weeks after the ruling of the Supreme Court (TS), the pro-independence movement has managed to agree on Wednesday a joint response to the verdict. The reply has come after the first meeting of the so-called Assembly of Elected Offices, which has brought together 2,000 independent public officials in Barcelona: from mayors to councilors, to deputies and senators. There was also the president of the Generalitat, Quim Torra, the vice-president, Pere Aragonès, as well as the president of the Parliament, Roger Torrent and several councilors of the Government.

Despite the efforts to project a unitary image, the different souls that make up the independence movement have flown over the meeting at all times. The first divergences have been seen during the first speeches: a live one from Puigdemont from Waterloo and a letter from Carme Forcadell read below. While Puigdemont has displayed a much more belligerent message, Forcadell has asked for empathy and insisted on the need to stay on the peaceful road.

“Today we confirm that we will not achieve anything that we do not get by our own means,” said the former identifier by videoconference. “Nothing will come to us from outside or given away.” The expresident has defended the assembly created today as a space “to make our own decisions” and “walk with our own agenda.” He has also ensured that the independence movement “resume” its way to the Republic.

Forcadell, on the other hand, recalled that the road is “long and difficult” and has asked the assembled not to allow independence to “separate from nonviolence.”

The assembled have failed to specify how the objectives set will be carried out and, during the open turn of speech, the differences that remain latent in secessionism have been evidenced. At the moment, the so-called “management commission” formed by members of the three independentist parties has committed to think about how this organization will be structured and to discuss it at the next meeting.

After the approval of the manifesto, different public offices have taken the floor and the majority have taken the opportunity to defend the young people who, while the event was taking place, occupied the University Square to start an “undefined camping”. It has been then that the toughest messages against the members of the Government have been launched, who have had to listen at several times to the cries that were calling for the resignation of the Interior Minister, Miquel Buch, and the demand for unity in independence. “We can not make more empty speeches, we have to generate a new institutionality and that does not happen again as October 1,” said one of the participants.

Most of the speeches defended the mobilizations of the last days in Catalonia, without having heard a single condemnation of the riots in Barcelona and other cities in the territory. “I belong to a generation to which you promised everything without paying anything,” said a 24-year-old. “In the end I belong to the generation that has paid everything without getting anything.” The room has risen to applaud him. In another clear message to Torra, sitting in the front row, a councilman from Viladrau has urged him not to talk about infiltrators. “We were your children who tried to show our outrage,” he said before a loud applause rumbled in the room.
