On September 11 millions of Catalans will again show their determination to build a new state in Europe peacefully and democratically by forming a giant V along the two main avenues of Barcelona, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes and Diagonal. This initiative will be the third big event organized by the Catalan National Assembly (ANC) after last year’s Catalan Way, when 2 million people made a 400-km human chain from north to south of Catalonia, and the 1.5-million-strong demonstration “Catalonia, New State in Europe” in Barcelona in 2012. This year hundreds of thousands of Catalans and friends of Catalonia will form a V showing that we want and we will Vote to express our Will (Voluntat) for a democratic Way (Via) towards independence. – – we are ready for independence
