In a in a letter addressed to the Vice President European Commission and responsible for fundamental rights in the European Union Mr. Frans Timmermans,  the president of Plataforma per la Llengua, Mr. Òscar Escuder, explains some of the events that have taken place recently in Catalonia, such as the confiscation of posters of our campaign "A favorable state", as well as those of other organizations that support the referendum called for this Sunday; the closure of both official and private websites reporting on the referendum; the persecution of politicians; and the harassment of journalists by the militarized police, the Attorney General and the Spanish government.
