Left Catalan Republicans demanded to postpone arrival to Catalonia until apology to Catalans, as EFE reports on October 5.
Press secretary of party “Left Catalan Republicans” Marta Vilalta commented on Monday, October 5, on the forthcoming visit of King Philip VI to Catalonia. She stated that the king is not expected in Catalonia and the king should apologize for speaking against the referendum on independence in Catalonia on October 1, 2017.
“Until the king does not give up his statements made after October 1 (the king said he did not consider the referendum lawful), it will not be accepted in Catalonia,” said Marta Vilalta. He will not be considered the king of the Catalans because he supported the violence against those who expressed their opinion in the referendum, added a spokesperson for the Left Republicans of Catalonia.
