Foreign Friends of Catalonia is an association comprising independent citizens from all over the world, actively committed to the defence of the right to self-determination.
We believe it is essential to safeguard the human, civil and political rights of people in sovereign, free and democratic societies, following the example of the values that emanate from the determination and the peaceful but firm demeanour of the Catalan people.
We aim to build up an international civil network of individuals willing to use their professional competences, personal abilities and contacts to help the association – and therefore Catalan society as a whole – in what we termed “grassroots diplomacy”.
With this goal in mind, we have put forward some specific projects that are straightforward to undertake and can easily include international exchanges, thus taking advantage of the support network that is being created day by day.
We facilitate contact with political, civil and intellectual players, involving as many individuals and civil associations as possible, because we believe that such direct involvement will enable us to collectively find the path to consolidate our liberties and rights.
Our association was legally constituted on 14 January, 2019, in Germany.
