Statement of Catalan Federation of Music Associations

As a reaction towards the sentence pronounced by the Spanish Supreme Court, which condemns the Counselors of the Government of Catalonia and the former president of the Parliament of Catalonia (all of them elected by the citizens of Catalonia) and also the social leaders from Òmnium Cultural and Assemblea Nacional Catalana (ANC), from the Catalan Federation of Musical Associations (Federació Catalana de Societats Musicals), in its role as an entity that brings together the music bands of Catalonia and its commitment to culture, society and associative networks, we want to express our rejection of this sentence.
We want to state and defend that: 
1. All citizens must be able to express their opinion by using as many democratic procedures as needed. Freedom of expression is a fundamental right of every human being, and we will always oppose any prosecution on political ideas when such ideas do not involve or justify in any case the use of violence as a means to achieve a goal. 2. We need to keep being a clear example of a peaceful and fighting civil society that uses non-violence as a resource in each and every one of its actions.
3. Judicialisation and punitive measures such as imprisonment will never be the solution to the political conflict between Catalonia and Spain. The only possible solution is a political solution based on dialogue at all levels and scopes.
4. We will continue giving our support to all peaceful initiatives that lead to and help solving the conflict.
5. Our commitment to Catalan institutions is irrefutable and beyond all doubt, and now more than ever we appeal to all political and social forces so that they do whatever is necessary in order to preserve the fundamental rights and the freedom of the citizens of Catalonia.
In a clear, honest and committed way, we want to express our solidarity and warmth to the families of those people who are deprived of freedom because of their political ideas and their commitment to society -Oriol Junqueras, Raül Romeva, Josep Rull, Jordi Turull, Joaquim Forn, Dolors Bassa, Carme Forcadell, Jordi Cuixart and Jordi Sànchez-.
