Plaid Cymru's MEP continues to keep up the pressure on the Spanish Government re: Catalonia (Dec 2017)
Plaid Cymru has supported the right of the Catalan people to decide their own future free of outside interference.
In October 2017 Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood urged the National Assembly to recognise the new state of Catalonia.
Leanne Wood said:
"I congratulate the Catalan people on gaining their independence through peaceful and democratic means.
"The Catalan people have insisted on a democratic route to achieving independence through the ballot box. They are to be commended for continuing to reject violence even though they have faced brutality from the Spanish State.
"Plaid Cymru will be calling for the National Assembly for Wales to recognise the Catalan Republic as an independent country."
Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Catalonia, and Plaid Cymru MP, Hywel Williams added:
"Today marks a historic moment for the Catalan people.
"The European Union must now uphold its founding principles of liberty, democracy and civil liberties, and stand with the people of Catalonia as European citizens."
As events unfolded since the referendum Plaid Cymru have continued to call for the release of all political prisoners.
