Catalonia in solidarity with Jaume Sastre, on hunger strike to defend teaching of Catalan in Balearic Islands

By Help Catalonia:Catalan 3

Help Catalonia has launched a campaign through the social networks which consists of taking a photo with a poster containing the message “#Solidarity with #HungerStrikeForCatalan” to show our solidarity with the protest in favour of the Catalan language which is taking place in the Balearic Islands; and with the hunger strike to demand education in Catalan, to defend language immersion and to raise international awareness of the contempt suffered by our language in Spain. The campaign is attracting the attention of international journalists who were not aware that the language spoken in different regions such as Valencia or Majorca is the same as that spoken in Catalonia.

Noteworthy among the supporters of the campaign are European MEPs of the Catalan Parties Ernest Urtasun of ICV, Ramon Tremosa of CiU and Josep Mª Tericabras of ERC; as well as actors as Juanjo Puigcorbé and the writer Otto Ozzols from in front of the Freedom Monument in Riga; as well as Catalan MPs Joan Herrera, Dolors Camats Ester Capella, Quim Arrufat …
