“We are the fruit of many defeats, yet also convinced that we are the seed of all victories.”
— Oriol Junqueras
A man with strong democratic convictions. Oriol Junqueras is a father, a husband, a companion. He is a teacher, a neighbour and a friend. Oriol Junqueras is like you, is like me, one among many, who works to construct a better world for everyone. His place is with us, not within the four walls of a cell in Estremera.
He has been in pre-trial detention for more than 100 days. The Spanish state accuses him, without foundation, of the crimes of rebellion, sedition and embezzlement for having organised the referendum of the 1st of October. The imprisonment of Oriol Junqueras, along with that of Jordi Cuixart, Jordi Sánchez and Quim Forn, shows the limits and the weakness of a state that is capable of violating fundamental rights to defeat its political opponents.
to address in a mature and democratic manner the demand always scrupulously peaceful of a very significant part of Catalan society.
The rejection of dialogue and the commitment to the repressive path of the Spanish state are a very bad omen that puts at risk hard-won rights. The imprisonment of Oriol is not just a punishment of a person, not even of a political position or of the inhabitants of a territory, but a direct threat to all minorities and dissenters within the European Union. And with it, to the pillars of every democratic society.
Today it is the case of Oriol Junqueras, Jordi Sánchez, Jordi Cuixart or Quim Forn; tomorrow it could be any person or entity accused of dissent or any political option that is annoying to the ruling party.
betraying its founding principles in refusing to defend the rights and freedoms of Catalan citizens, who are also Europeans and want to remain European citizens.
and the other political prisoners, the return of those exiled and the restitution of all of their political rights as elected representatives of the people of Catalonia.
They can imprison a good man, but they cannot imprison goodness. They will be able to imprison a just man, but not justice. They can imprison a brave man, but they cannot impose fear on us. They will be able to imprison Oriol, the Jordis or Quim, but there are not enough prisons to imprison an entire country or their longings for freedom.

We are a group of people from various origins and backgrounds, who have crossed paths with Oriol Junqueras during one of his many and varied activities: as citizens of Sant Vicenç dels Horts, the municipality where he lived until his imprisonment and of which he has been Mayor; at UAB as academic colleagues, students, and as non-faculty staff members; as project partners when he was engaged with popularising historical issues for different media outlets; as people in Brussels who shared his hope to internationalise the Catalonian case and to democratise European institutions; and, finally, as one of many who have known him as Vice President of the Government of Catalonia, or simply from running into him on the streets.
